Description
The research, development and innovation programme ICT 2023 is jointly coordinated and funded by the Academy of Finland and Business Finland with a view to further improving Finland's scientific expertise in computer science and promoting the extensive application of ICT. The programme is based on the report `21 Paths to a Frictionless Finland' by the ICT 2015 Working Group.The aim of the 'ICT Technologies for the Digital Transformation of Industry' call is to support the creation of new techniques and technologies to enhance the digital transformation of industry. The call targets research that is aimed at achieving significant leaps in existing industrial processes and at creating completely new types of processes, methods and technologies that yield superior benefits compared to current activities. Key to this is the development and utilisation of ICT technologies in new ways.Examples of research topics include:
- advanced robotics
- learning and hyper-flexible automation
- AI optimisation
- and 4D printing
- Internet of Things (IoT)
- self-organising production equipment and systems
- large-scale decentralised and autonomous systems
- distributed cloud services and edge and fog computing
- systems for industry
- virtual environments, integration of the virtual and physical world
- sensors and actuators
- digital twins.Projects must also take into account the demonstration or validation of research objectives at least at concept level.
