The PIMAP Partnership has been set up to support clusters, their SMEs and other regional ecosystem actors to ensure key enabling technologies (KETs) such as photonics and more conventional but essential technologies such as microwave can be mobilised to support Smart Manufacturing and related industrial applications in some of Europe’s key industrial sectors. This cross sectoral activity will drive the industrial modernisation process in Europe and will provide a springboard for cluster SMEs and promote European growth and innovation objectives through internationalisation support programmes.

PIMAP joins strengths and knowledge of four partner countries. Participants and specific fields for the project are metal industry from Bergslagen area (Triple Steelix), technology transfer and productization from Portugal (Produtech) and photonics knowledge from area of Bordeaux (Alpha-RLH) and Joensuu (Joensuu Science Park).
