Project - iPro-noord

Description


Description (EN): The project entails concrete measures fort sensitizing, encouraging of German and Dutch SMEs in the project area to develop prototypes of innovative, high tech and intelligent products. Through the cross border transfer of technology, the innovative potential of a great number of German and Dutch SMEs in the project area will be used and their participation to Smart Industry/Industrie 4.0 supported. The project partners communicate about the project through thematic network sessions in close correspondence to regional development agencies in their capacity as collaborative partners. Amongst these agencies are a.o. NOM, Kennispoort Zwolle, Fieldlabs, Regionale Centra voor Technologie on the Dutch side and regional development authorities a.o. in Münster and Münsterland, Grafschaft Bentheim, Landkreis and Stadt Osnabrück, as well as Emsland and Ostfriesland on the German side and other intermediaries. The screening, first contact, and informing of interested SMEs (Module 1), is carried out in first instance by these regional RDAs, and where appropriate, by the project partners themselves. From the Module 2-phase “elaborative discussions” onwards, the project partners’ regional coordinators work together in a cross border project team to facilitate the implementation of individual SME-projects and are responsible for the concrete participation of SMEs to the project. This process follows three subsequent phases: “Conceptualisation” (Module 3), “Feasibility Study” (Module 4) and “Prototype Development” (Module 5). The lead partner bears responsibility to carry out the correct formal and administrative procedures. The Project partners bind Universities (for applied sciences)/R&D institutes but also institutes for professional education in a capacity as external service providers into the project. The project partners’ regional coordinators support the SMEs in their search for appropriate service providers.
Description: Het project omvat concrete maatregelen ter sensibilisering, stimulering en prototypische ontwikkeling van innovatieve, technologisch hoogwaardige en intelligente producten in Duitse en Nederlandse MKB´s in het projectgebied. Door middel van grensoverschrijdend technologietransfer moet de potentie voor innovatie van een hoog aantal Duitse en Nederlandse MKB´s in het projectgebied worden benut en ondersteund voor hun participatie aan Smart Industries/Industrie 4.0. De bekendmaking van het project aan MKB’s middels informatie- en themabijeenkomsten geschiedt in overleg en samenwerking met regionale intermediairs. Hierbij horen organisaties als NOM, Kennispoort Zwolle, Fieldlabs, Regionale Centra voor Technologie aan NL-kant en Wirtschaftsfördereinrichtungen o. a. in Münster en het Münsterland, de Grafschaft Bentheim, de Landkreis en Stadt Osnabrück, alsmede het Emsland en Ostfriesland aan D-kant. Ook de inventarisatie van, het eerste concrete contact met en informatie aan geschikte MKB’s door informatie en acquisitie (module 1) geschiedt in eerste instantie via regionale intermediairs resp. via de projectpartners. Vanaf module 2 “verdiepende gesprekken” zijn de projectpartners vertegenwoordigd door regiocoördinatoren in een gezamenlijk projectteam verantwoordelijk voor de uitvoering en de begeleiding van de afzonderlijke MKB projecten “conceptontwikkeling”, “haalbaarheidsstudies” en “prototypische ontwikkeling” (modules 3 t/m 5) op operationeel niveau- het moment dus waarop MKB´s concreet aan het project deelnemen. De Leadpartner is verantwoordelijk voor de correcte formele en administratieve uitvoering van het project. Universiteiten, hogescholen, R&D-/kennisinstellingen en beroepsopleidingsinstellingen zullen in het project ten behoeve van MKB’s voor kennisoverdracht en/of als externe dienstverleners worden ingeschakeld. De regionale coördinatoren ondersteunen de MKB-ers bij het zoeken naar en de keuze van de meest geschikte externe dienstverleners.
