INESC Porto strengthens competitiveness of the European footwear industry
The “CEC-Made-Shoe” European Project has developed a set of radical innovations that promise to revolutionise the footwear industry. The results of the project have already been applied in some Portuguese companies, such as Kyaia, Procalçado and Aerosoles. This project’s aim is to increase the competitiveness of European SMEs in the footwear industry and also reach 10% of the world’s production until 2010. The Manufacturing Systems Engineering Unit (UESP) of INESC Porto was one of the project’s main partners, having developed new manufacturing processes and concepts that cause a direct impact on the companies’ productivity.

  • Gallery of the Uncommon
  • Among the dozens of questions and requests that we receive every month in our portal, it is not uncommon for us to find that some of them are a bit unusual or incredible. However, in 2008, no other message topped this one.
