Digital innovation hub.

About

Lithuanian Robotics Association (LRA) is a coordinator of Digital Innovation HUB for robotics and is non-profit organization which has the status of association. LRA seeks to become a “one-stop shop” for everything related to robotics in Lithuania and currently quickly builds up ecosystem around major robotic solution providers and competence centres.

Lithuanian robotics DIH helps robotic business in Lithuania to enter transnational value chains and to find new export markets. DIH helps manufacture industry to better understand their needs and to find the right solution providers for their problems. DIH also helps competence centres and robotic solution providers to enter into cooperative research agreements and also consults how to lower the risk of investments by aligning them with Governmental support.

LRA as coordinator of DIH helps Government, Ministry of Economy, Ministry of Science and education to address national policy challenges related to digitalization of the industry and changing roles of the future workforce.

Relevant projects

RALM (2016 – 2017). The aim of this project was to bring together local robotics stakeholders and lay the groundwork for the establishment of a robotics eco-system in Lithuania through the establishment of a DIH on Robotics hosted by the LRA. Feasibility study was performed, business plan was prepared, solutions and cases of Lithuanian robotics developments were described and Lithuanian DIH for robotics was registered in the EU catalogue of DIHs. Funding: internal call in Reconcell project (Horizon 2020).

Lithuanian Industry 4.0 platform (2016 – ongoing). The aim of the initiative is to create sustainable debate platform, to review Lithuanian strategy for industry development, to propose improvement to Lithuanian smart specialisation strategy and programmes for it’s implementation and to promote Industry 4.0 concept through various dissemination activities. LRA in the Industry 4.0 is responsible for the building of ecosystem of digitalization service providers and is leading a topic group on digitalization services. DIH members are contributing to established working groups. Funding: public private partnership.

Logistics for Manufacturing SMEs (L4MS) (2017 – ongoing) (www.l4ms.eu): The L4MS project aims to accelerate the automation of intra-factory logistics for SMEs. It will enable inexpensive deployment of small and flexible logistics solutions requiring no infrastructure change, no production downtime and no in-house expertise, making the investment in logistics automation more attractive for SME’s and Mid-Caps in Europe . The project will deliver L4MS Marketplace as a one-stop-shop, where European Manufacturing SMEs & Mid-Caps can access Digitalization services, including technical support, business mentoring and finance. The L4MS will conceive 3 Pilots and 20 cross-border Application Experiment through 2 competitive Open Calls, and will demonstrate the leveraging of European Structural Funds and private investment in established and emerging Digital Innovation Hubs (DIHs) across Europe. 2017-2021. Funding: Horizon 2020 project.

A Network of Robotics DIHs for Agile Production (DIH2) (planned to start in 2019). The DIH2 project will unite a network of more than 30 DIHs in Europe in order to facilitate the uptake of agile production by manufacture SMEs. Funding: Horizon 2020 project (awarded, grant agreement in preparation).
