Digital tech for the cognitive process industry: HyperCOG to host joint workshop

December 03, 2020

The European process industry represents the economic roots of the European economy, bringing economic and social value by transforming raw materials into intermediate and end-user products. As a society, we need it to address the current challenges in housing, transport and energy. But with a high dependence on resources (energy, raw materials and water) and striving for long-term sustainability, the process industry has a clear and urgent need to improve efficiency and competitiveness.

The HyperCOG consortium, together with the INEVITABLE, COGNIPLANT and COGNITWIN projects, is proud to hold an online workshop on the 16th of December (9.00-11.30 AM CEST), to discuss the general aims of the SPIRE call they are a part of (Digital technologies for improved performance in cognitive production plants) and common strategies among the projects.

These projects aim to develop new technologies to implement cognitive production plants, with improved efficiency and sustainability, exploiting smart and networked sensor technologies, intelligent handling and online evaluation of various forms of data streams, as well as new methods for self-organising processes and process chains. Each project will be presented and the session will be concluded with a round table discussion.

The webinar will provide the audience with a unique view of the latest developments in this field as well as introduce them to the people developing this vital technology. It’s a must-see event.

This collaboration also provides a double benefit by allowing projects to fine tune their strategies and improve their competitiveness. As such, our goal is to hold this kind of session every year, involving more and more projects.

The webinar is free of charge and you can register below:

Please be aware that the event will be recorded, in order to allow those who cannot attend to enjoy the event.
