M-NEST-RIS will support the development and implementation of a new paradigm in the learning of added-value manufacturing (AVM) in Europe, based on the creation of a distributed Teaching and Learning Factory prepared to address the challenges raised by the exponential introduction of new AVM technologies in the context of Industry 4.0.

M-NEST-RIS aims to nurture and empower people to work in and to foster AVM in countries with moderate or modest innovation capacity, such as Czech Republic, Estonia, Greece and Portugal. The idea is to gather complementary technological hotspots at the different partners to develop a distributed TLF able to address the specific AVM education needs at each country.
