NERDIC Industry 4.0 Readiness Ecosystem Program


Created with grant funds from the U.S. Department of Defense Office of Local Defense Community Cooperation (OLDCC), the New England Regional Defense Industry Collaboration's focus is to build regional collaboration and a multidisciplinary approach to supporting the region’s defense industry supply chain.

The NERDIC Industry 4.0 Readiness Ecosystem program will highlight technologies in generative design, addititive manufacturing, augmented reality, artificial intelligence / cloud computing, model-based definition (MBD) - big data and analytics, and model-based definition - on machine probing.

As a technology partner with NERDIC, the Berskhire Innovation Center can facilitate with area manufacturers to develop a proposal to apply for NERDIC funding, even if you're not currently in the defense industry supply chain.  Contact Steve Longpre - This email address is being protected from spambots.
