SMART 4.0 is a MSCA COFUND Fellowship Programme aimed at providing world-class training and research opportunities to 16 Experienced Researchers in fundamental and/or applied research fields in the area of Smart Manufacturing. The training proposed includes an individualized 24-month training project, a Spring and international Summer school, and training in a series of scientific and transferable skills. Due to the criticality of industry’s role in Europe’s economy, a 3-month secondment at one of our partner sites will also comprise part of the offering. The SMART 4.0 program will publish 2 calls for proposals to attract the very best researchers. Researchers are invited to submit proposals, using an individually-driven, bottom-up approach.
This training program will focus on delivering the next generation of Smart Manufacturing leaders with strong “systems-level thinking” interdisciplinary skills to help drive Industry 4.0 forward for Europe.
Furthermore, SMART 4.0 is committed to tackle gender inequalities, paying specific attention to attracting and supporting female researchers within Smart Manufacturing.
The role of the expert reviewer is to assess the quality of the research project proposed in all aspects relating to: Excellence, Impact and Implementation.
