EU Flag

H2020 is not "only" a research framework programme. Horizon 2020 is creating sustainable growth & jobs and is actively improving Europe's competitiveness - we are contributing to research and innovation actions, like DIGITbrain and CloudiFacturing.

The achievements of European Research and Innovation Actions are merged in new projects to support and foster the transfer from Science to Business. We rely on our effective partnerships in our regional, national and European network and help identify and seize opportunities in research and business.

CloudiFacturing

Next to the projects, we attend as commercial partners, our enabling technologies, like the Cloud Broker Platform and MiCADOscale, are also continuously utilized and extended.

EU projects we work on

Innovation and agility for manufacturing SME.  Accessing digital technologies and advanced manufacturing hardware tailored to their needs achieving smart "manufacturing-as-a-service".

Further development of cloudSME & clesgo platforms - aims to create an all-encompassing digital marketplace for the provision of software & resources.

EU projects we worked on

Link to COLA's Project Website

The COLA project worked on the field of the custom orchestration of virtual machines and clusters to automate the scaling and deployment of clusters. The MiCADO Framework is a composition of several components, e.g. the software-based firewall.

The cloudSME project supported end-user SMEs to use customised simulation applications in the form of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS)-based offerings. In addition, simulation software service providers and consulting firms have access to a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) solution that enable them to quickly assemble customised simulation solutions in the cloud for their customers.
