The EU initiative to digitalise the manufacturing industry

About I4MS

ICT Innovation for Manufacturing SMEs (I4MS) was promoted by the European Commission to expand the digital innovation of manufacturing SMEs in Europe. As an SME or a mid-cap, you can apply for technological and financial support to experiment with different technologies and services to improve the innovation skills of your staff and the technologies and services your company provides.

I4MS is one of the key initiatives of the European Commission to shape the pan-European network of Digital Innovation Hubs.


Collaboration with OntoCommons

Since OntoCommons is constantly liaising with I4MS, this synergy will evolve as new relevant activities arise from both projects. 

  • OntoCommons's training material will be adopted by the I4MS SMEs training catalogue.
  • Cross-dissemination of both projects' activities to join the second OntoCommons Horizontal Workshop and the OntoCommons Focus Areas. 
  • Representatives from both projects could join each other's events to tap into new communities.
