Professional support for project funding
Thematically, the network focuses on an intelligent machine integration. This topic addresses a current and future problem situation in practice in the area of Industry 4.0 and represents a key technology for the implementation of Smart Factories. Based on existing practical and scientific experiences, the initial consortium of the network propose the following five research topics which should be addressed in the network.
We are looking for further partners joining the network. Partners should be mainly industrial partners with integration problems, solution and technology providers with integration solution components and research partners with an active interest in the adressed research topics. If are interessted in this network please contact the network coordinator.
