Parallel Workshop Session W2.4 – “Towards the Food Factory of the Future - needs for manufacturing solutions and necessary infrastructure”
The FoodManufuture project is aimed to provide a vision and a conceptual design for a trans-disciplinary research infrastructure for food manufacturing. The consortium is based on wide-spread networks of public and private stakeholders from the ETPs Food for Life and MANUFUTURE. FoodManufuture provides a structured, pan European dialogue with relevant stakeholders of the food sector and the manufacturing solutions sector to obtain their visions, challenges, opportunities and needs.
The needs and the available envisaged solution of manufacturing sector were identified for research infrastructures including facilities, resources, services necessary to serve the current and future needs of the European food industry, and also include their obstacles, difficulties of the adaptation, practical application and analyses, how can knowledge transfer be carried out and enhanced.
Main goals are therefore to explore new opportunities for the food processing sector through application of new, advanced manufacturing solutions, to search potential applications, to enhance their development and exploitation, and to identify the necessary enabling RIs. During the project numerous long and short- term research needs and more than 50 available and envisaged solutions representing both the food processing and the manufacturing sectors were identified. The missing elements of RI were also identified and screened for necessity and feasibility.
