On May 27, 2016, the Whitebook JKU Production Research was presented.
The current development known under the buzzword Industry 4.0 poses a major challenge to the Industrial Province of Upper Austria - and is an essential future mission that the Johannes Kepler University Linz addresses.
Therefore, a press conference was held with the following participants: Rector of the Johannes Kepler University Linz Univ.-Prof. Dr. Meinhard Lukas, Provincial Economic Councillor Dr. Michael Strugl as well as voestalpine Head of Research DI Dr. Franz Michael Androsch and Whitebook Editor Dean Univ.-Prof. Dr. Alois Ferscha.
In recent years, scientists at JKU have been working intensively on the research challenges of the products of the future and their production systems. Findings from this research conducted in the individual faculties are summarised in the JKU Production Research Whitebook.
