Great success of I4MS Conference in Amsterdam
After successfully completing its third year, I4MS hosted its third international public event, organised by Innovalia Association within the project I4MS-GROWTH, on June 23rd and 24th in Amsterdam. Around 200 industry and innovation professionals gathered to attend several presentations on the I4MS project’s achievements as well as additional funding opportunities for SMEs and medium-sized corporates within the initiative.
The event signified the importance of SMEs in Europe’s manufacturing industry and their role in the reindustrialisation process for Europe. At a glance: SMEs are providers of around 45% of manufacturing added value and roughly 59% of employment in the manufacturing sector. At the exhibition, the booth of I4MS received many visitors, very interested in the initiative, the open calls and the digital innovation hubs.
