DEEPINC : European network of Incubators for Manufacturing DeepTech

deepinc

Advanced Manufacturing (AM) encompasses fascinating technologies, drawing on the most disruptive digital innovations and an ever-growing variety of materials – ranging from concrete to living cells. 

 The recent surge of AM innovation is now calling for deeper collaborations between the impacted sectors. This is the main ambition of the Deep Inc project: to offer  start ups and SMEs working with and for AM a supportive, responsive and dynamic network.

Advanced Manufacturing (AM), such as additive manufacturing, nano-manufacturing, biohybrization, integrated AI or robotics, is evolving fast,  even in times of deep crisis, and is crucial for European industry renewal.  In practice, the adoption of such «game changing» technologies remains  limited by multiple technological as well as commercial constraints.

1. DEEP DIVE INTO ADVANCED MANUFACTURING

The DeepInc network aims at creating the appropriate ecosystem able to  face, in a dynamic and collaborative way, most of these constraints.

Get immersed in the Deep Inc Network and dive into AM by joining our training programme tailored to:

  • Increase your technology expertise on AM
  • Favour migration paths towards industrial deployment and integration of AM  in manufacturing processes
  • Promote skills cross-fertilization and hybridization to pave the w y for further  technological innovation

2. OUR NETWORK

As Europe seeks to retain its pivotal position in industrial competitiveness, there is  an urgent need to establish a network promoting AM skills and business opportu-  nities at Regional, National and European levels, and set the ground for a smart,  sustainable and inclusive growth of the AM sector.

Deep Inc will tackle this challenge and offer access to unique European network of incubators connected to european laboratories and technology  platforms.

The DeepInc network associates renowned academic partners: Arts &  Metiers Institute of Technology (France), Politecnico di Torino (Italy), Uni-  versity College of Dublin (Ireland).

All partners benefit from an environment rich in innovation and entrepreneurship,  gathering incubators, national and European technological clusters and platforms.  This environment of scientific and 
technological innovation is in permanent contact  with startups and SMEs, thereby providing the excellence and complementarity  required to anticipate the new challenges of European manufacturing.
