About iPRODUCE

The Horizon 2020 project iPRODUCE - “A Social Manufacturing Framework for Streamlined Multi- stakeholder Open Innovation Missions in Consumer Goods Sectors” (2020-2022) will develop a novel social manufacturing platform to enable multi-stakeholder interaction and collaboration to support user- driven open-innovation and co-creation.

Concept

The iPRODUCE project introduces a novel social manufacturing platform (SMF) that embraces manufacturing companies in the consumer goods sector, their associations/ networks, Fablabs/ makers spaces, DIY communities and various other innovation players at the local level.

Objectives

The objectives of iPRODUCE are centred around several key concepts, namely: platforms and tools, establishing collaborative Manufacturing Demonstration Facilities (cMDFs), defining a SMF, developing business models and IPR, fostering integration and promoting open innovation challenges.

Workplan

iPRODUCE is structured into 10 Work Packages, that will address activities ranging from the identification of business challenges in social manufacturing to the establishment and improvement of cMDFs, and from defining core services for the social manufacturing platform to the validation and evaluation of the social manufacturing space.

Our cMDFs

Open innovation and co-creation activities will be carried out in six pilot cMDFs located in different countries: France, Spain, Italy, Denmark, Germany and Greece. These cMDFs will address various sectors, including furniture, automotive, medical, electronics and microelectronics.
