Infineon Technologies AG is taking over coordination of the wide-cope European research project AIMS5.0 (“Artificial Intelligence in Manufacturing Leading to Sustainability and Industry 5.0”). Hardware and software-based Artificial Intelligence are to improve resource consumption in manufacturing and at the same time raise product quality. In addition, the objective is to improve resilience, optimize supply chains and time-to-market in order to boost the international competitive strength of Europe as a commercial location.
A budget of approximately 70 million euros makes AIMS5.0 one of Europe’s major research projects. It is being funded under the European Union’s Key Digital Technologies Joint Undertaking (KDT JU). 53 research and partners in industry from twelve countries are participating.
“Production processes in the sense of Industry 5.0 incorporate humans, the environment and the entire supply chain. The research project AIMS5.0 will make intensified use of Artificial Intelligence to achieve comprehensive improvements in all these aspects, thus increasing the sustainability, resilience and competitive strength of European manufacturing,” says Rutger Wijburg, Chief Operating Officer at Infineon. “We at Infineon are committed to driving decarbonization and digitalization. We are therefore very pleased to take on leadership of AIMS5.0, where we will move Industry 5.0 ahead in alliance with excellent European partners.”
