The MANUSQUARE project aims to deploy a European Platform-enabled marketplace fostering a dynamic establishment of value networks, enabling the matching of the availability and demand of manufacturing capacities and thus rendering an Industry’s optimal utilization of unused installed capacities, that would be otherwise remain unutilized.

Industrial Challenges

Market dynamics, in contrast to installed capacities, are by nature in continuous change and characterized by fluctuations, rendering as of the highest relevance to enable companies to dynamically allocate (and monetize) unused capacities, by-products and capabilities.


A platform-enabled marketplace, aggregating adequate tools, services and information resources, supporting the matching and establishment of business processes between those that are seeking for specific manufacturing capacities and those who have theirs available.

Benefits & Advantages

The access to a wider base of business opportunities, manufacturing capacities, knowledge and services, via the rapid and flexible establishment of supply networks, supported by an highly traceable and secure platform, that aims to exploit the available and unused potential.

Innovation Challenges

Silk by-products

The production of silk generates fibroin and sericin, which can also be leveraged for other cosmetic products.
Is the process used for the creation of the pads compatible with the re-utilization of these materials?

More flexible production methods and produce to order

Explore more flexible production technologies to produce specifically to orders. Concrete real cases can be found in the shoe manufacturing industry, where factories produce and distribute in 24hours individual shoe orders. New domains of application are sought.

New solutions for sorting of textile classes

The difficulty in re-use of (un)used clothing will be the different compositions of different types of clothing. Textile classes could be defined that allow for a better recycling process without too complex/demanding separation and sorting processes. New solutions are sought.

HY-LITE aluminum

HY-LITE is an innovative composite material made up of two thin sheets of aluminum wrapped around a white polypropylene center. Like steel, HY-LITE can be bent, drilled, cut, milled, sliced, printed and silk screen printed, but weighs 30% less than aluminum and 65% less than steel.
