MANUSQUARE: access and monetize unused industrial capacity
25 novembre 2020
Webinar 11.00-12.15
Official public presentation of MANUSQUARE platform - Capacity sharing service

The project

The MANUSQUARE project aims to create a European platform-enabled responsible ecosystem acting as a virtual marketplace, bringing available manufacturing capacity closer to production demand to achieve their optimal matching.
It fosters, on the one hand, fast and efficient creation of local and distributed value networks for innovative providers of product-services and, on the other hand, reintroduction and optimisation in the loop of unused capacity that would be wasted otherwise.
In a wider perspective the MANUSQUARE project pursues a paradigm shift that disrupts the traditional static supply chain model and establishes dynamic value networks that can be arranged on-demand to couple the needs of buyers and the availability of sellers of manufacturing capacity. In so doing, this latter becomes an easily and efficiently tradable commodity towards lowered production costs for European companies and improved manufacturing ecosystem actual productivity.


  • INDUSTRIAL CHALLENGES: market dynamics are by nature in continuous change and fluctuations. Installed capacities, per definition, are not, rendering, in some cases, the inability to access to specific business opportunities (lack of capacity) and, in other cases, a non-optimal exploitation of investments (unused capacities). It is of the highest relevance to enable companies to dynamically access to and allocate (monetize) unused capacities, by-products and capabilities. MANU-SQUARE platform can provide for it!
  • THE MANU-SQUARE SOLUTION: MANU-SQUARE platform delivers a marketplace, aggregating adequate tools, services and information resources, that supports the matching and establishment of business processes between those that are seeking for specific manufacturing capacities and those who have theirs available.
  • BENEFITS AND ADVANTAGES: access to a wider base of business opportunities, manufacturing capacities, knowledge and services. Be part of the MANU-SQUARE platform and marketplace and enjoy from a flexible establishment of supply networks, supported by an highly traceable and secure platform, that aims to exploit the available and the unused potential of installed capacities.
