ManuFuture gears up to launching a Public Private Partnership in the manufacturing technology sector

ManuFuture, the European technology platform on future manufacturing technologies, last week decided to set up a new industry-led R&D association - “European Factories of the Future Research Association” (EFFRA) - that will engage into a public private partnership in the area of R&D with the European Commission. The European Technology Platform involves key stakeholders across Europe, including engineering industry associations and their member companies. At last weeks` meeting, the ManuFuture High Level Group decided to set up the new R&D association.


Commented Orgalime Secretary General, Adrian Harris: “With this new legal entity, ManuFuture is taking a significant step forward: by joining forces of supplier companies, customer companies and research institutes throughout Europe in an industry led association, EFFRA, our industry hopes to work in a closer partnership with the European Commission to define the R&D priorities and to allocate funding for ensuring that Europe’s manufacturing technologies sector continues to be the world leader. ”
