This innovation contributes to the following SDG(s)
SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOAL 9
Build resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialization and foster innovation

The UN explains: "Investments in infrastructure – transport, irrigation, energy and information and communication technology – are crucial to achieving sustainable development and empowering communities in many countries. It has long been recognized that growth in productivity and incomes, and improvements in health and education outcomes require investment in infrastructure."

SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOAL 12
Ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns

The UN explains: "Sustainable consumption and production is about promoting resource and energy efficiency, sustainable infrastructure, and providing access to basic services, green and decent jobs and a better quality of life for all. Its implementation helps to achieve overall development plans, reduce future economic, environmental and social costs, strengthen economic competitiveness and reduce poverty.

The EU-funded Research Project
This innovation was developed under the Horizon 2020 project HyperCOG with an end date of 31/08/2023
Description of Project HyperCOG
HyperCOG project “HYPERCONNECTED ARCHITECTURE FOR HIGH COGNITIVE PRODUCTION PLANTS” addresses the full digital transformation of the process industry and cognitive process production plants through an innovative Industrial Cyber-Physical System (ICPS). It is based on commercially available advanced technologies, that will enable the development of a hyper-connected network of digital nodes. The nodes can catch outstanding streams of data in real-time, which together with the high computing capabilities available nowadays, provide sensing, knowledge and cognitive reasoning to the industrial business. Furthermore, HyperCOG is deeply grounded in the last advances in Artificial Intelligence such as modelling for twin factories, decision-support systems for human-machine interaction and augmented reality for industrial processes visualization. It pursues self-learning from the process in order to deal with the typical dynamic fluctuations of the industrial processes and global optimization. The objective is to increase the production performance while reducing the environmental impact by reducing the energy consumption and the CO2 emissions thereof. Society will get profit of this project not only throughout the environmental impact, but through the lifelong learning of workers and vocational training for digitisation, and the available training modules for youth at schools such as ESTIA technological institute or U-PEC University. The breaking-edge system proposed in HyperCOG project will be validated on the productivity and environmental impacts, replicability and usability aspects on three use cases belonging to the SPIRE scope such us SIDENOR (steel making), CIMSA (cement), and SOLVAY (chemical) use cases.
