Development and implementation of intelligent and innovative technologies in Naval and metalworking industrial sectors

17/04/2017 – 31/12/2019

The project intends to efficiently transfer to the Naval and metalworking industry new advanced and low cost manufacturing technologies, contributing to the modernization and increased competitiveness of these industrial sectors.


The Manufactur4.0 project aims to transfer effectively to the NAVAL and metalworking industry new advanced and low cost manufacturing technologies, as real and measurable examples of the improvements that R&D&I can bring.
It will translate in the following benefits:

– Enhance relations between research centers and enterprises
– Encourage the introduction of 4.0 technologies in a strategic sector for the Euro-region Galicia-North of Portugal.

The project will result in the technification 4.0 of the naval and metalworking sector of the Euro-Region, based on SMEs, achieving the development and transfer to this industry of new highly advanced manufacturing technologies, and with it, a remarkable increase of the ratio of patents requested in this field. This will make it possible, in the medium-long term, to have a joint collaboration structure in the field of advanced manufacturing for the sector in the Euro-region, and an industrial fabric with high technical capacity, both in development, and implementation and exploitation of manufacturing technologies.
