The political focus on environmental responsibility in production has been increasing in recent years. In addition, critical materials are being depleted worldwide. Therefore, it is essential to conduct research within new flexible and sustainable solutions for production that are economically viable, improved work environment, meet future legislation, and maintain our current materials
- Smart production using drones, robots, exoskeletons etc.
- Sustainable processes, materials, and construction to reduce the systemic footprint of production and the supply chain.
- Reducing resource consumption by developing and exploiting potentials from smart production (e.g. IoT, big data, AI, and robots).
- Reconfigurable production systems with modular units and the use of AI and big data developed in the context of human practice to ensure sustainable transformation.
