Cluster News. January and 1. February at Grand Hall Zollverein in Essen. On the first day, high-level policy debates will highlight different aspects of the digitisation of the industry and Industry 4. An exhibition area will offer the possibility to get more information on national and European initiatives, and showcase successful examples of the use of digital technologies. Further information can be found under www. Please register here. Supply chain coordination with bundling of transport flows and optimized use of multimodal transport infrastructure offers opportunities for optimized logistics services.
The objective is to exchange best practices in innovation and solutions of supply chain coordination and identify obstacles and opportunities for cross-border supply chain coordination in the Netherlands and Germany. In both Nordrhein-Westfalen in Germany and the Netherlands, innovation in supply chain coordination leads to the implementation of new solutions. Given the large trade volumes in the cross-border logistics between these regions, there are challenges and opportunities for cross-border implementation of supply chain coordination.
Here you find more information. The Fourth annual international business conference for supply chain and operations professionals takes place on thursday and friday, 6th and 7th of October , in Frankfurt am Main.
EXCHAiNGE explores the themes of digitization, compliance , and supply chain finance — delivering clear answers and highlighting real-life approaches that empower you to drive and shape the future. There are discount options for members of the EffizienzCluster-network. More Information under www. They agreed on further cooperation to deepen these discussions — among others — in joined research projects. Hence their need for Industrie 4. At the UCD Insight Centre for Data Analytics, one of the biggest research organisations within this domain, the delegation members were introducing the Initiative Industrial Data Space of Fraunhofer and the corresponding user association whose head office is located at the Fraunhofer IML.
Within the Industrial Data Space Association notable corporations from industry, service providers and trade companies develop safe and trustworthy solutions for the digitalisation and the resulting fundamental change of business and manufacturing processes. Research focusses are medical engineering, data security, energy, materials research or the digital linked agriculture. Furthermore, collaborations at the operational level shall be enhanced in the future: Our European Network rises!
Companies, RTOs and institutions in both networks shall equally benefit from that cooperation. In future, the three partners will intensively identify joint fields of action and encourage the exchange between respective players in the networks through workshops, innovation days and match-making events.
The fields of action include ICT information and communication technology and smart devices for intelligent logistical system, synchro-modality, green logistics, urban logistics, mobility and autonomous transports. Also the activities with joint applications for research projects at EU level shall be intensified — in particular with respect to Horizon , the EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation.
VIL is a non-profit organisation with nearly active members from different sectors of logistics haulage contractors, shipping agents, harbours and airports, logistic estate companies and research institutions. Main research fields are cooperative logistics, green logistics, e-commerce and smart logistics. VIL sees itself as open-innovation platform and seeks the status of a leading edge cluster in Flanders.
Together with researchers of Fraunhofer IML employees of the companies work on specific innovations on site. On 27 June the new premises for the think tanks of applied logistics research were inaugurated. The combination of co-working spaces, state-of-the-art technical equipment and close form of cooperation opens an all-new dimension of interdisciplinary research and development between companies and Fraunhofer IML.
It is a great opportunity, not only for logistics but for the entire economy in North-Rhine Westphalia. The main research emphasis in the Enterprise Lab Centre reaches from innovative logistics hardware, software and big data up to innovative business models.
In contrast to currently standard project research an Enterprise Lab allows faster and more efficient research. For lab research is made for long-term duration and bases on a minimum three-year contract between the company and Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft. Joint and basic principle is to implement new, agile and interdisciplinary forms of cooperative research and development.
Thus, prototypes for products like for example micro SMD circuits with component sizes down to 0. This is made possible by merging the extensive processing capacities of Fraunhofer IML with the Enterprise Lab Center at one place: including mechanics, electronics and control technology. Even the mechanical shop floor of the Dortmund institute is connected to the Lab Center through a lift. By altering parts of an existing test area new space for rooms could be provided. The concept of Enterprise Labs with its interaction between business and research allows exactly this development beyond rather static project thinking", explains Prof.
Additionally the researchers create concepts and models should to improve the education of young buyers. The associated research and innovation projects of the EffizienzCluster complement and deepen the topics of the cluster and extend the network of experts. On the one hand, the experts informed the participants about the principles, the assessment criteria and the assessment process of the KIC proposal.
Five KICs already exist. They focus on the topics climate change, information and communication technology, sustainable energy, health and raw materials. The aim of the KICs is to provide a new culture of innovation in their economic sector. Since several months EffizienzCluster and Fraunhofer IML are working intensely on a proposal regarding the KIC manufacturing call, in strong cooperation with numerous research facilities from whole Europe as well as with interested enterprises.
Deadline for proposal submission is the 14th of July, the assignment should occur on the 19th of November of this year. They got interesting impressions of cutting-edge projects in Dortmund. Deadline for proposal submission is the 14th of July, the assignment should occur on the 19th of November The delegation from Finland was impressed by the cutting-edge activities.
