“BioShoes4All” is a research project carried out by the Portuguese Footwear, Components, Leather Goods, and their Accessories Association (APICCAPS) and the Technological Footwear Center of Portugal (CTCP). Its goal is to promote the transition of the footwear industry to the bioeconomy and sustainable circular economy, aiming to ensure a resilient national production base for positioning in foreign markets where innovation, differentiation, quick and effective response, service, product quality, training, and promotion are competitive arguments to surpass the competition.


The project is divided into five pillars: Biomaterials, eco-friendly footwear, circular economy, advanced production technologies and training, and promotion. It is fully aligned with the objectives established in the Portuguese Recovery and Resilience Plan.


In this case, we will focus on the fourth pillar: the provision of innovative technologies for the vertical and horizontal digitization of the Footwear 4.0 Group. This includes solutions for process and production product tracking, advanced planning, automation/robotization of critical production operations, and the introduction of eco-processes.
