On 10th December, Mesap organized its cocreation workshop to detect the missing skills and training needs of SMEs and large companies, understand their point of view on funds and accelerator programmes, and to better understand how clusters can be key actors in supporting digital transition in their regional ecosystems. The session was interactive and inspirational and gave us a wonderful occasion to understand better what the main drivers are and the main barriers the companies face to use and implement ICT technologies in their production lifecycle

On 14th December 2021, Mesap realised its annual Conference in which Mind4Machines has been presented towards institutions, SMEs, Large Companies and BSOs. The event took place in the prestigious ILO (International Labour Organization), the U.N. agency, since 1919 the ILO brings together governments, employers and workers of 187 member States, to set labour standards, develop policies and devise programmes promoting decent work for all women and men. The Framework Oltre la fabbrica: nuovi paradigmi e nuove competenze (Behind the plant: new paradigms and new skills) was an occasion to talk about how digital technologies can support a business model change, like servitization, that refers to industries using their products to sell “outcome as a service” rather than a one-off sale

The venue also fostered synergies with other EU projects (Things+ and Boost4Bso) to discuss about potential collaboration opportunities to capitalize on their experiences. A great occasion to introduce Mind4Machines in a physical event and list the aim and the opportunities the project gives to companies: not only two calls (cascade grant) of about 3.3 million of euros in total, but also services like assessment, e-learnings tool and a platform to meet companies.
