8 – 12 March 2021

The international week “Industry 4.0: Technologies and Management” aims to provide students with an introduction to the main Industry 4.0 technologies (e.g., cyber-physical systems, assistance systems, collaborative robotics, additive manufacturing, and artificial intelligence) both from a technical and managerial point of view. Beyond that, students get also the possibility to meet and cooperate with other students and professors from different countries and universities in an international and multicultural environment.

The lectures are targeted to (second and third year) bachelor and master students, preferably enrolled in engineering programs like mechanical, management, mechatronics, electronics-ICT, environmental, and energy engineering. 

The week is co-organized by six European universities of the EUCLIDES Network: Free University of Bozen-Bolzano (unibz), University of Udine (uniud), University of Girona (UdG), University of Antwerp (UAntwerp), University of Basque Country (UPV/EHU), and Katholieke Universiteit Leuven (KU Leuven).

The teaching format, fully online (on Microsoft Teams), combines theoretical lessons, exercises, virtual labs, and an optional project work. Please refer to the program for further details.

Students can register either for the teaching activities (lessons, exercises, and virtual labs) or for both the teaching activities and project work. For the project work, students will be divided in groups to deepen a practical problem or issue related to the topic of the international week. The presentation of the results to the evaluation committee is scheduled for March 19th in the morning. The list of projects and supervisors will be published soon.

No registration fee.

Deadline for registration: 31st January 2021 by using this LINK.

Maximum number of attendees for the teaching activities + project work: 30 students (maximum 6 students for each organizing university). In case of more applicants, the selection will be done based on the transcript of records and the motivation letter submitted during the registration.

Certificate of attendance: Students attending at least 75% of the hours of the international week will receive a certificate of attendance and, with it, they might ask their sending university the recognize the international week for their study career (the recognition of ECTS is however a solely decision of the study program in which they are enrolled).
