About the community

This innovation community will bring together all actors in this innovation ecosystem and should lead to innovative products, services and also processes.

There are 6 general objectives

  • Upskilling the workforce and developing the talent
  • Creating efficient manufacturing innovation ecosystems
  • Digitizing the manufacturing industry
  • More on-demand and customer focused manufacturing
  • Manufacturing that looks at health, ethics, social acceptance and safety
  • Environmentally sustainable manufacturing


These objectives are reflected in five different schemes for which organizations, researchers and industry (knowledge triangle) can apply:

  • Business creation of high-growth companies to lead the transformation of the manufacturing industry in Europe
  • Education of current and future workforce to make sure they are equipped to work with the technologies of the future
  • Innovation where they develop technologies and bring them to the market as ready-made innovative products, services and processes
  • Regional innovation schemes to help countries and regions that are lagging behind in terms of manufacturing innovation
  • Activities where they work together with other innovation communities to create cross-sectoral innovations

EURHISFIRM - Long-term data for Europe

EURHISFIRM designs a world-class research infrastructure (RI) to connect, collect, collate, align, and share detailed, reliable, and standardized long-term financial, governance, and geographical data on European companies. EURHISFIRM enables researchers, policymakers, and other stakeholders to develop and evaluate effective strategies to promote investment, economic growth and job creation. The RI provides the tools for long-term analysis highlighting the dynamics of the past and the way those dynamics structure our present and future.

The EURHISFIRM European project received € 3.4 million in financing from the European Commission through the H2020-INFRADEV-2017-1 research infrastructures call. The project started with a consortium of eleven research organisations (including University of Antwerp) from seven European countries.
