General desciption of Recovering and preserving the European leadership in strategic and high value added products:
Europe needs to increase the knowledge and manufacturing capabilities to design and produce sophisticated and high quality products that are essential for the European economy and society. This includes in particular products that are key for sustainable and renewable energy generation and storage, such as solar panels, batteries, hydrogen solutions, e-fuels solutions, sustainable mobility, wind energy solutions and critical machinery components that save energy consumption.
While operating in synergy with initiatives that focus on the design and engineering of such (green-tech) key products and solutions, the Made in Europe Partnership will focus on key manufacturing technologies that Europe needs in order to be a manufacturing leader in strategic sectors.
All levels needs to be addressed: process, machine, production line, plant and value network level, product design, covering material shaping and processing as well as advanced automation and digitalisation approaches, including re-manufacturing capabilities and digital product passport implementation.
