Adopting innovative, advanced manufacturing processes is a major challenge for companies in central Europe. However, advance manufacturing (AVM) is not only a technological issue. Innovation managers and owners of small companies face huge organisational and strategic challenges linked to AVM. There is an urgent need to develop a joint qualification basis through transnational capacity building in local SME and lead companies. The InnoPeer AVM project will develop and test a first comprehensive, transnational AVM qualification programme, shaped to the needs of central European companies.

The multi-level programme will use a mix of well-proven and novel training formats and methods for basic, advanced and practical trainings. These will include living lab webinars, practical test runs at a model factory and AVM strategy camps. Participants attending the project’s teaching cases will become InnoPeer-certified AVM managers. Pilot trainings will involve target companies and innovation managers from all participating regions. The piloted programme will be freely available to other interested regions and companies. The project will also prepare regional action plans and a roadmap on AVM capacity building and establish the ‘InnoPeer AVM Board’ that will further promote project results.
