One year after the kick off, the new
Region of Smart Factories Northern Netherlands (RoSF)
initiative is already paying off for the University of Groningen. PhD students are graduating on RoSF programmes, UG students build together with SME’s a zero defect pick & place machine for a full automatic razor production line and UG is key partner in the first six smart industry research programmes initiated by the Dutch Top Sectors HTSM, IT and Creative Industry. Moreover, RoSF provided already 125 industrial jobs. These RoSF results have been presented at the Hannover Messe, last April. Prof. Sibrand Poppema, President of the University Board and Annemieke Galema, Director Research & Valorisation office, UG, attended the meeting in Germany.
The Region of Smart Factories Northern Netherlands is one of the flagship projects of High Tech Systems and Materials Northern Netherlands Task Force (HTSM) in which 40 companies (large and small) and knowledge institutes jointly conduct research into new technologies for the Faultless factory, including UG. RoSF recently acquired Field lab status on the national Smart Industry action agenda.
