A Strategic Roadmap Towards the Next Level of Intelligent, Sustainable and Human-Centred SMEs (SME 5.0)

Digital transformation is everywhere, and SMEs are no exception. Even the smallest enterprises can have great potential to integrate digital value chains by adopting digital services. With support from the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Action Program, the SME 5.0 project will develop a strategic roadmap to make SMEs digitally savvy, sustainable, resilient, and human-centered. In this next level of SME 5.0 factories, the human being and the environment will play a much more important role. The overall goal of the project is to ensure that SMEs capture the benefits of Industry 4.0 and reach the next level of Industry 5.0.
