Accueil > SMEs Growth > Industry of the Future: Support use of digital technologies to transform the industrial model

Launched in April 2015 by the French government, the “Industry of the Future” initiative is based on a broader ambition capitalizing on the gains achieved in the “Factory of the Future” plan.

Over and above modernization of the production base, the idea is to help companies transform their business models, organizational methods and design & marketing approaches taking up the digital challenge.

The “Industry of the Future” project is built upon five pillars :

  • Develop cutting-edge technologies
  • Help companies adapt to the new paradigm
  • Employee training
  • Reinforcement of national cooperation on norms and standards
  • Promoting the French Industry of the Future

Within this scope, regional stakeholders are given the opportunity to assert a regional positioning for industry in Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur.

Appointed by the PACA Region, ARII, in partnership with industrial business assistance stakeholders, is entrusted with the implementation of « SMEs and ISEs  regional industrial excellence programs ». ARII is also entrusted by the government with monitoring the “Industry of the Future” project in French Regions.
