Acronym: EU-Japan.AI
Title: Advancing Collaboration and Exchange of Knowledge Between the EU and Japan for AI-Driven Innovation in Manufacturing
Duration: 01/2021 to 04/2022
Topic: ICT-38-2020
Call: H2020-ICT-2018-20
Funding: CSA – Coordination and support action
GA Number: 957339

Project Impact

The EU-Japan.AI project aims to support cooperation between EU and Japan in areas relevant for AI-driven innovation in manufacturing and digital industrial platforms. High impact will be based on using an online platform to enhance knowledge and information exchange between all the area-relevant stakeholders. Related to this, the cooperation between the involved parties will be strengthened and be transformed into a long-lasting partnership, enabled by the long-term strategy.

The project will connect the partners to each other and then create a dynamic and expanding network around them as well as increase synchronisation and cooperation on AI and related digital technologies in manufacturing, with higher global impact. The objectives and types of actions planned in EU-Japan.AI will create results that fulfil the requirements of the call but also aim to go beyond them.

Project Structure

This project is designed as a coordination and support action. To reach all described aims and objectives of the of EU-Japan.AI project, with a total duration of 16 months, an integrated project plan and overall work plan strategy consisting of 5 different structured work packages and strategic positioned milestones will be followed.

WP1 - MANAGE: PROJECT MANAGEMENT, COORDINATION AND REPORTING

The main objective of this WP is the coordination and management of the consortium partners. The scientific work will be assisted, monitored and the administrative tasks will be performed all in order to pursue an effective and most productive project performance.

WP2 - INVOLVE: STAKEHOLDER INTEGRATION, KNOWLEDGE EXCHANGE, COOPERATION AND TWINNING ACTIVITIES

The main objective of this WP is the strong involvement and integration of key stakeholders throughout the duration of the EU-Japan.AI project.

WP3 - COMPILE: EUROPEAN & JAPANESE AI & MANUFACTURING ECOSYSTEM, STRATEGIES, RESOURCES AND EXPERTS

The objective of this WP is to collect and analyse information to generate a comprehensive understanding of the AI & manufacturing ecosystem in Europe and Japan, as well as challenges and motivators for its uptake.

WP4 - EMPOWER: WEB PLATFORM, KNOWLEDGE BASE, SHOWCASES, RESEARCH ROADMAPS AND STAKEHOLDER MAPS

The objective of this WP is to empower the project target groups with an interactive and informative online platform, including further knowledge sources, but also matchmaking finder for specific needs.

WP5 - BOOST: AWARENESS RAISING, PROJECT NEWS, COMMUNICATION, DISSEMINATION, NETWORKING AND EXPLOITATION

The objective of this WP is to raise awareness on the project/programme scope and the benefits of implementing AI-driven innovation in manufacturing and digital industrial platforms.

INCREASED

research excellence of researchers and companies from EU and Japan in the field of AI for manufacturing as a result of twinning.

MAPPING

Project Background

Weedle has an extremely acute sense of smell. It is capable of distinguishing its favorite kinds of leaves from those it dislikes just by sniffing with its big red proboscis (nose).With its long, thin wings, it catches updrafts and flies like a glider high up into the sky.Pidgey has an extremely sharp sense of direction. It is capable of unerringly returning home to its nest, however far it may be removed from its familiar surroundings.
