Companies in Flanders are faced with the need to transform their manufacturing systems into smart, cost efficient, re-configurable systems delivering high quality products. At the same time, the climate change requires a significant reduction of the ecological footprint of companies. DIGITALIS will help companies in finding solutions for this twin-transformation.

Flemish policies such as Vision 2050, the Flemish Smart Specialisation Plan and the Flemish ERRF have identified the manufacturing industry as one of the key target application areas for growth with Industry4.0 related technologies as enablers.
