Centre of Excellence in Production Informatics and Control

Objective

The main, overall objective of the proposal is to establish the Centre of Excellence in Production Informatics
and Control (EPIC) as a leading, internationally acknowledged focus point in the field of production
informatics, management and control representing excellence in R&D&I. EPIC will be constituted and run
through the cooperation of the Institute for Computer Science and Control, Hungarian Academy of Sciences
(MTA SZTAKI), two faculties of the Budapest University of Technology and Economics (BME) and four
institutions of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft (FhG) under the coordination of the National Innovation Office
(NIH), Hungary as a governmental decision maker.
The EPIC project will lead to:
1. The upgrade of MTA SZTAKI as existing Centre of Excellence of the EU.
2. The further development of the Fraunhofer-SZTAKI Project Centre for Production Management and
Informatics (PMI), a joint initiative of FhG and the Hungarian Academy of Sciences (MTA), established
in 2010. (The cooperating Fraunhofer institutions have been the Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing
Engineering and Automation (IPA), Stuttgart and Fraunhofer Austria (FhA)).
3. The extension of the present cooperation with two faculties of BME, i.e. the Faculty of Mechanical
Engineering (GPK) and the Faculty of Transportation Engineering and Vehicle Engineering (KJK), on
the one hand, and with two additional institutes of FhG, i.e. the Institute for Production Technology
(IPT), Aachen and the Institute for Production Systems and Design Technology (IPK), Berlin.
4. The close cooperation with SMEs as well as with large industrial firms.
Due to direct, institutionalized and supported interactions with Fraunhofer, not only the scientific capabilities
of the Hungarian partners but also their ability to transfer scientific results to industry-relevant applications
will be greatly enhanced. By this way a “high speed lift” to innovation culture and performance in Hungary and
the CEE region will be provided.
