CTAG coordinates the MAINGAP project: “Innovative Manufacturing in the Galicia-North Portugal Euroregion” (0555_MAINGAP_1_E). The main objective of this project is to accelerate the implementation of cutting-edge technological solutions that respond to the great challenges of moving towards Industry 4.0 in the Euroregion.
MAINGAP takes as its starting point the Automotive Sector and the Aeronautical Sector, and will favour sectoral and technological hybridisation. For this purpose, a working group specialised in the surveillance of 4.0 technologies will be established, innovation projects with a multisectoral approach and demonstrative character will be developed, and pilot experiences will be carried out in companies of the Euroregion to promote the incorporation of these technologies and improve the competitiveness of the business sector.
CTAG leads this project of transfer and valorisation of 4.0 technologies to innovative SMEs of the Euroregion, in collaboration with the la Agencia Gallega de Innovación – CIS Tecnoloxía de Deseño (Galician Innovation Agency – Centre for Innovation and Services of Technology and Design), the Centro de Engenharia e Desenvolvimento, CEIIA (Centre of Engineering and Development) and the University of Minho.
The project is developed from February 2019 to December 2021, the total cost of the project is € 1.29M and is co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) through the Interreg V-A Spain-Portugal (POCTEP) 2014-2020 Programme.
