Best practices / case studies of cooperation

SCCH – Software competence Center Hagenberg:

Human-AI Teaming Platform for Maintaining and Evolving AI Systems in Manufacturing (TEAMING.AI)

  • The EU-funded TEAMING.AI project aims to achieve a breakthrough in smart manufacturing. By introducing a new teaming framework for humans and AI, manufacturing processes will be optimised: The greatest strengths of the two elements can thus be maximised, while safety guidelines and ethical requirements are checked and adhered to.

RISC Software:

  • Research Project MEDUSA: The goal of the MEDUSA consortium is to develop a revolutionary training and planning platform for neurosurgeons to simulate complex brain interventions in a detailed and holistic manner.

RECENDT - Research Center for Non-Destructive Testing GmbH:

  • Spatially resolved spectroscopy

Do you want to know the exact local distribution (in micrometer range) of your chemical components? With Mid-Infrared-Microscopy we can chemically characterize and measure materials and cross-sections (e.g. residues or inclusions) with a spatial resolution as small as 5 µm.
