SIDCOM is unique in its utilisation of the Application
Experiment in which the best practice is recorded and availabe
at this site as demonstrator.
During an Application Experiment, an enterprise is
funded to conduct a complete project where it utilises a contactless
technology which is new to the enterprise to improve an existing
product or manufacturing process. The enterprise conducts
its Application Experiment under the guidance of its local
TCE and with the assistance of one or more subcontractors
to ensure sufficient knowledge transfer into the enterprise.
This enables the enterprise to achieve a significant increment
in its technological and managerial capabilities. An Application
Experiment is only conducted if there is sufficient evidence
that it will result in significant and direct economic benefits
to the enterprise.
The details and rationale of the AE economic benefits,
lessons learned and best practices established are captured
as a public demonstrator and included in the SIDCOM portfolio
accessible at the SIDCOM

Experiments can be accessed via:
