ADMA TranS4MErs Acceleration Programme: unique funding opportunities for manufacturing SMEs

If you are starting your business's digital transformation and are looking for expert guidance and cutting-edge services to boost your journey, ADMA TranS4MErs has the right programme for you!

Apply to our Open Call for European SMEs in Advanced Manufacturing and get access to innovation vouchers and funding to design and implement your very own Transformation Plan with the help of a trustworthy broker, your dedicated TranS4MEr.

The programme

Be one of the up to 1000 manufacturing SMEs participating in our Acceleration Programme in two phases: Design – first Open Call launching on 1 September 2022 – and Revamp – from April 2023.

At the Design stage, spanning from November 2022 until February 2023, you will receive one innovation voucher valid for up to 8 hours of 1-on-1 time with one of our certified advisors in digital and advanced manufacturing. After you match with a TranS4MEr on our xChange Platform, he will evaluate the results of your ADMA Scan and prepare a Digital Transformation Plan specifically tailored to your business needs and ambitions. You will then work together with your TranS4MEr to review the Plan and create your wishlist of services and tools most suitable for your individual Transformation Journey.

At this point, you will be able to submit your Transformation Plan to apply for the Revamp Open Call and take the next step in your journey towards becoming a Factory of the Future. The Revamp Voucher, a total of 10 tokens, will allow you to purchase the services and tools you selected in your wishlist. Your TranS4MEr will help you get in touch with certified service providers through the xChange platform to build your very own toolkit and put into action your Transformation Plan.

How to apply

Check the eligibility criteria and application procedure in the Open Call Application Guidelines and apply to the Design Open Call on the F6S portal from 1 September until 14 December 2022.
We warmly encourage early applications. Vouchers will be granted by country on a first-come-first-served basis after each cut-off date on 2 November, 16 November, and 30 November, so don’t wait too long to submit your application!
You can also request a recommendation from a TranS4MEr, a partner in the ADMA TranS4MErs consortium, or a Digital Innovation Hub and Enterprise Europe Network member to increase your chances of success.
