About this programme

This cluster will try to stimulate European growth in the key areas of digital, industry & space  and make sure most of its future production (entire value chain) will be happening in the EU so the member states become less dependent of third countries. Increased sustainability of the delivered products is at the heart of these efforts.

As a result, actions under this cluster will support key enabling technologies that are strategically important for Europe’s industrial future. They have selected 6 focus areas or destinations that reflect these strategic domains:

  1. Climate neutral circular and digitized production
  2. Increased autonomy in key strategic value chains for resilient industry
  3. World leading data and computing technologies
  4. Digital and emerging technologies for competitiveness and fit for the Green Deal
  5. Open strategic autonomy in developing, deploying and using global space-based infrastructures, services, applications and data
  6. A human-centered and ethical development of digital and industrial technologies.

Autoship - a new and durable way of freight transport

Autoship is, as the name suggests, an acronym for autonomous ship. Just like with self-driving cars, the possibilities of an unmanned boat seem endless. It can create more efficient freight transport, around the clock deliveries and these are just a few of the examples. The project has two societal challenges.

At first, De Vlaamse Waterweg was a bit hesitant as their experience with FP7 or Horizon 2020 projects was limited and they had not been very successful up until then. The fact that they were already doing basic research on the topic of autonomous boats, and the administrative help of NCP FLanders helped De Vlaamse waterweg to cross the line and get involved.
