The PSYMBIOSYS Consultancy Package support the product-service system adoption and realisation/instantiation.



The Technical Package contains all the technical assets that can be used during the instantiation phase of the project in a customer.



Experimentation and implementation of different trials following  PSYMBIOSYS approach addressing four manufacturing sectors


By 2020, manufacturing value chains will be organised in symbiotic collaboration forms which, thanks to the full availability and adoption of advanced manufacturing intelligence technologies, will dramatically reduce the barriers which currently prevent EU Manufacturing Industries to take the lead of next generation STEEP sustainable product-service solutions.

PSYMBIOSYS aims at improving the competitiveness of European Manufacturing industries by developing an innovative product-service engineering environment, symbolized by a five-pointed symbiosis star – design-production, product-service, knowledge-sentiment, EDA-SOA, business-innovation – and able to dramatically reduce the time-to-market of more attractive and sustainable product-service solutions.



The PSYMBIOSYS concept is based on a holistic and unifying collaboration concept
