Language of the event: English

ManuLearn project is funded by EIT-Manufacturing EU initiative


The Teaching and Learning Factories, set up by the ManuLearn program (EIT Manufacturing) in different regions, will use a problem-based learning approach, where participants will learn by solving open-ended problems, real industry challenges. A total of 4 different Teaching / Learning Factories will be implemented as well as an open innovation event, fostering experience and knowledge exchange. International participants from different countries will be involved considering their manufacturing ecosystem. All events will be online, and the Teaching / Learning Factories’ subjects will include such as:

  • Predictive maintenance,
  • Cobotics,
  • Digital twin,
  • Additive Manufacturing,
  • Sensors for Milling Machining,
  • Monitor and control of pr0cesses for zero-defect,
  • Robots,
  • Manufacturing intelligence
  • etc.

The first Industry to Industry learning event will be organized on 29 September by TECNALIA Research & Innovation and IMH
