Representatives of CIT UPC took part in the kick-off meeting in Brussels of the INDUSAC project in September. This project was born out of the multidisciplinary, intersectoral association of nine partners from companies and universities in Europe.

INDUSAC’s main objective is to develop and validate a new state-of-the-art collaboration system, which will enable and optimise collaboration between the industry and academy sectors, from the perspective of quick, challenge-driven and human-centred co-creation.

A platform as meeting point

Based on pre-existing cooperation mechanisms, the new project aims to facilitate a simple, fast, user-friendly co-creation process. Through academic work across Europe, this will enable the development of solutions that clearly address the needs and interests of European Union companies.

The project will also create a dynamic community, including at least 1,000 companies, 3,000 students and 300 researchers at the end of the project.

In addition to CIT UPC, other participants in this project are Bax & Company, Innoget, the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Pécs-Baranya (Hungary), the Jozef Stefan Institute (Slovenia), the Bydgoszcz Tool Valley Industrial Cluster (Poland), the Karlsruher Technology Institute - KIT (Germany), the Cyprus University of Technology and EIT Manufacturing East (Austria).

With a duration of three years (2022-2024), the INDUSAC project is funded by the European Health and Digital Executive Agency (HaDEA) and is part of the Horizon Europe programme. It is endowed with a budget of €1,999,845.
