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.

1. DEEP DIVE INTO ADVANCED MANUFACTURING

Advanded Manufacturing (AM), such as additive manufacturing, nanomanufacturing, 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.

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
