Impact: the new EFFRA newsletter

Impact, the first public newsletter from the European Factories of the Future Research Association (EFFRA), was launched in June 2016. The publication focuses on projects launched under the EU’s research and innovation programme for advanced manufacturing – ‘Factories of the Future’ (FoF). Since its start in 2010 the FoF programme has enabled the launch of 208 projects which in turn are responsible for exploitable technologies, demonstrators, pilot activities and spin-off companies. Such results are having a substantial impact on the European manufacturing industry across multiple sectors. The newsletter aims at making the work and results of the projects known to a broader European audience.
