MANU-KET is established as the Spanish Technological Platform for Advanced Manufacturing.
This platform is born with an open integration spirit. Its aim is to identify technological needs required by future products and services, in which the incorporation of advanced materials, microelectronics, photonics and nanotechnologies (all of them, considered Key Enabling Technologies as defined by the EC) require new processes, equipment and production systems with new levels of productivity, safety, functionality or precision. These new technological developments will place Spanish companies in positions of international competitiveness and leadership.
The technological platform MANU-KET will deal with the needs identified by the five key enabling technologies and their impact on the developments to be taken by the six: Advanced Manufacturing Processes, Smart and Adaptive Production Equipment, Human-Machine Collaboration, Digital, Virtual and Efficient Factories, Customer Centric Manufacturing and Sustainable Manufacturing.
