About the project
The understanding of new technologies varies among the academia, industry and governments of central European countries. CEUP 2030 strives for excellence in policy making on Industry 4.0/Advanced Manufacturing in this region. Using the outputs and results of Interreg cooperation and Horizon 2020 research projects, they will create a comprehensive innovation system for policy making to set best-in-class structures and processes. They will generate stable innovation networks and thus streamline emerging knowledge with policy building in a regional context.
An upstreaming process is designed to meet the challenges & needs of available, high-quality innovation know-how in the CE area, which lacks sufficient cooperation & structure to really add-value at a policy-level & limits the competitive potential of connected regions. Transnational, multi-level learning supports regions to overcome this challenge. 
Main results to be achieved
CEUP 2030 enhances the CE innovation eco system by establishing a sound Trend & Innovation Network scheme working on 4 common CAMI4.0 topics and set policy pilot actions for improving the innovation landscape with the RIS3 Round Tables. Furthermore, trainings in the Policy Learning Labs & the elaborated tech radars (in the Policy Intelligence Dashboard) also increase the innovation capacity.
The status-quo is shifted through intensive, mutual triple-helix stakeholders learning, common EU-wide tech trend monitoring, to gain & streamline emerging knowledge & policy building in a regional & CE/EU context. 

Synergies, long term use

CEUP 2030 synergises the outputs & results of 6 CE/H2020 twin projects & sets strong links to jointly & consistently implement them & emerging spin-off projects. The project sets a unique innovation system approach for regional & transnational policy making with high practical relevance. Joint future robust strategies for 2021-2027 and action plans push innovation in a long-term view but with immediate proven test cases to check the relevance for practice. CEUP 2030 involves 30 CE/EU regions and 100 stakeholders from different target groups directly in the project work and addresses at least 250 further ones via conferences.


- the most complete one-stop-shop for policy makers and policy influencing stakeholders -

PID gathers in one place practical and streamlined knowledge and insight on technology trends and potential industry impact for the entire innovation eco-system. Each CAMI4.0 area: Intelligent Production Systems, Automation and Robotics, Smart Materials and Artificial Intelligence represents a Tech Radar, where policy-relevant data sources as use cases, financial instruments, flagships and organizations are presented with a goal to support, transfer and enrich policy decision making processes in the area of key technologies.

PID is located on the http://ceup2030pid.eu/ -  website   and integrate knowledge and insight developed from dialogue occurring

within the Partnership’s workshop series includes the following elements for each CAMI4.0 topics :

  • Interesting use-cases
  • Summary of the flagships
  • Policy instruments
  • Analysis of the Tech Radar 

Policy Intelligent Dashboard offers access to the most effective and inspiring tools that have been created, developed and successfully tested by the consortium of CEUP2030 projects partners and beyond it – under the sister projects carried out.
