Change2Twin is looking for manufacturing SMEs and midcaps that want to improve their competitiveness by implementing Digital Twinning Technology. Their service, encapsulating assessment & guidance from certified Digital Innovation Hubs (DIH), will help them in overcoming that challenge.

49 participating SMEs and midcaps will receive a detailed analysis of their situation and 3 different “recipes” from a certified DIH who they choose to work with, containing the list of different technologies fitting the use case and details of an integrator willing to implement them. Both the report and the recipe are of value to the manufacturing company on their own – providing both the external, expert insights as well as a custom-tailored, ready to implement solution. Moreover, a beneficiary can use them to apply for support within the second instrument of Change2Twin – the Deployment Voucher.

Who can apply?

Manufacturing SME’s and midcaps from the EU and associated countries. Bottom-up projects should address the development and implementation of technology and systems applicable to digital twins for manufacturing with a special focus on digital twins related to additive manufacturing and IoT.

When can you apply?

The first open call is scheduled for the first quarter of 2021 and the second open call is foreseen for the third quarter of 2022.

What’s in it for SMEs?

You will get a 10.000 € voucher to use with a certified DIH of your choice in order to get a detailed assessment of your current situation and 3 different “recipes” for implementation selecting the best components and providers.
