The central kick-off event to establish the alliance foundation was held at Neues Schloss in Stuttgart on March 26th, 2015. At the event the partners signed an agreement previously compiled by the steering committee. An accompanying exhibit in which the IMS participated detailed various Industry 4.0 initiatives by participating alliance partners.
The alliance partners are to mainly support small and medium-sized companies on their way towards Industry 4.0 and help prepare employees for a changing spectrum of tasks.
The ministry will be funding Industry 4.0 projects with at least 8.5 million Euros over the next two years with a possibility of increasing the funds up to 14.5 million Euros.
