Liaison Projects


H2020 TRINITY (2019-2023): Digital Technologies, Advanced Robotics and increased Cyber- security for Agile Production in Future European Manufacturing Ecosystems. The main objective of TRINITY is to create a network of multidisciplinary and synergistic local digital innovation hubs (DIHs) composed of research centers, companies, and university groups that cover a wide range of topics that can contribute to agile production: advanced robotics as the driving force and digital tools, data privacy and cyber security technologies to support the introduction of advanced robotic systems in the production processes. The result will be a one-stop shop for methods and tools to achieve highly intelligent, agile and reconfigurable production, which will ensure Europe’s welfare in the future.

Collaboration with ODIN and TRINITY includes intense communication and information exchange, joint dissemination, and workshops. Development and exchange of demonstrations and training materials.


H2020 AI REGIO (2020-2023): Regions and DIHs alliance for AI-driven digital transformation of European Manufacturing SMEs. The AI REGIO project is addressing policy, technology and business barriers facing the AI-focussed DIHs, which prevent them from fully embracing the new digital reality. Addressing regional, cross-regional and pan-European issues will ensure that the EU takes the lead in digital manufacturing, creating new opportunities for innovation and growth. It will focus on developing AI-related services that can be offered as stand-alone services or as examples realised within HRC Pilot Line or another Robotics education environment.

Collaboration with ODIN in AI -related topics through bidirectional information exchange and dissemination of findings.

Science SIE

Finnish Academy of Science SIE (2021-2022): Sustainable Industry Ecosystem - Collaboration Framework for Green and Digital Technologies with special target to collect industrial needs in order to make TAU's HRC Pilot Line more accessible and attractive for the SMEs.

TAU’s HRC Pilot Line will be used in ODIN at TAU side for development and tests.

Vanguard Initiative - Efficient and Sustainable Manufacturing Pilot

Vanguard Initiative - Efficient and Sustainable Manufacturing Pilot (and in particular Digital Transformation democase). The Vanguard Initiative - New Growth through Smart Specialisation is an initiative that is driven by a political commitment of regions to use smart specialisation strategy for boosting new growth through bottom-up entrepreneurial innovation and industrial renewal in European priority areas. It has its foundations at the regional level. EU regions are the closest policy link to the bottom-up growth dynamics necessary for the renewal of our industrial fabric through their proximity to place-based innovative partnerships and clusters. Such partnerships and clusters form eco-systems that are the catalyst for new fast-growing innovative SMEs. They can re-shape industrial structures which are vital for new growth. Regional innovation ecosystems can and do develop solutions for the grand societal challenges while delivering on the EU’s ambitions for improved international competitiveness.

ODIN will use VI ESM as a network to further collaborate with participating regions and to convey the project results to the regional decision making and business development. The VI is focused on developing & disseminating the large scale pilot lines and assisting companies to set up these.



Other Networks


The European Factories of the Future Research Association (EFFRA) is a non-for-profit, industry-driven association promoting the development of new and innovative production technologies. It is the official representative of the private side in the 'Factories of the Future' public-private partnership.

The key objective of EFFRA is to promote pre-competitive research on production technologies within the European Research Area by engaging in a public-private partnership with the European Union called 'Factories of the Future'.

Collaboration by communication to stakeholders, through shared dissemination channels. Involvement and contribution directly through membership to vision and strategy of group.


ManuFuture aims to govern research, technological development and innovation (RTDI) efforts aimed at the transformation of the European manufacturing industry at policy and operational levels. The former, aims at continuous development of the MANUFUTURE Vision and Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda and promotion of the Lisbon objectives. While the latter, employing a technological approach exploiting all possible synergies arising from the converging nature of science and technologies.

euRobotics aisbl is a Brussels based international non-profit association for all stakeholders in European robotics. It was founded in September 2012 with the aim to strengthen Europe’s competitiveness and to ensure industrial leadership of manufacturers, providers and end-users of robotics technology-based systems and services.

The objectives of euRobotics are to boost European robotics research, development and innovation and to foster a positive perception of robotics. It aims at:

  • strengthening competitiveness and ensuring industrial leadership of manufacturers, providers and end users of robotics technology-based systems and services;
  • the widest and best uptake of robotics technologies and services for professional and private use;
  • the excellence of the science base of European robotics.
EuRobotics arranges annual events like European Robotics Forum, in which ODIN plans to disseminate its results to the wider robotics community.


The International Academy for Production Engineering (CIRP) [College International pour la Recherche en Productique] aims to address scientifically, through international co-operation, issues related to modern production science and technology. CIRP aims in general at

  • Promoting scientific research, related to: manufacturing processes; production equipment and automation; manufacturing systems; and product design and manufacturing.
  • Promoting cooperative research among the members of the Academy
  • Creating opportunities for informal contacts among CIRP members at large
  • Promoting the industrial application of the fundamental research work
  • Receiving feedback from industry, related to industrial needs and their evolution
  • Publishing papers, reports, annals and other technical information, organizing and sponsoring international conferences

ODIN will plan publications in CIRP annals and other journals, and participation on CIRP events.
