The annual SemI40 (“Power Semiconductor and Electronics Manufacutring”) General Assembly hosted by Alpen-Adria Universität Klagenfurt took place from 19-20 April, 2017. The Department of Operations, Energy, and Environmental Management welcomed more than 70 experts from several European Countries including Austria, France, Germany, Italy and Portugal.
The General Assembly served for presenting and discussing the results achieved by each project partner in the first year. The work package leaders presented the status of their objectives and the related plans for the next months. The first year was concluded positively without any deviation or additive risk for the project.
SemI40 will focus on “smart production” and “cyber-physical production systems” in the next three years with secure data traffic playing a key role within and outside factories. With a volume of 62 million euros, the research project is one of the largest Industry 4.0 projects in European Union.
