What is a Learning Factory?
A Learning Factory (LF) represents a realistic manufacturing environment suitable for education, training, and research. It’s a physical learning environment containing didactical instruments and equipment, effectively creating the work conditions of a real industrial site for didactic and training purposes.
In 2020 and 2021, several Networks of Learning Factories were created to build an international ecosystem able to foster research and technology transfer between academia and industry. EITM Learning Factories Network currently includes countries from West, South and Central Europe.
EIT Manufacturing wishes to become an international gateway and commercial channel for Learning Factories across Europe, with the ultimate aim to generate impact and revenues by leveraging both the physical assets within the Learning Factories and the digital learning content developed within EIT Manufacturing funded activities.
