Launched in 2019 at the initiative of the Federation of Industry (FEDIL) and the Ministry of Economy, co-funded by the European Union, the L-DIH (Luxembourg Digital Innovation Hub) was commissioned with supporting the digital transformation of Luxembourg’s manufacturing sector.
Managed and hosted by Luxinnovation, the L-DIH has already established a strong local footprint by working closely with the Luxembourg manufacturing ecosystem.
In 2023, the Luxembourg Digital Innovation Hub underwent a significant transformation, acquiring a new European dimension. It was officially designated as the European Digital Innovation Hub (E-DIH), thereby expanding the scope of the L-DIH. This transformation turned it into a comprehensive one-stop-shop for the digital transformation of the Luxembourg manufacturing sector. The E-DIH not only offered additional channels but also secured financial resources, enhancing its impact not only in Luxembourg but throughout Europe.
The L-DIH addresses the digital transformation of the Luxembourg industry with networking, innovation skills and trainings, “test before invest” services and support to find investment at local and European levels.
The Hub brings together skills and expertise in High Performance Computing, Cybersecurity and Artificial Intelligence.
In our commitment within the Luxembourg Digital Innovation Hub, we have had the privilege of hosting multiple webinars and will introduce additional ones in the year 2024.
In that webinar, we explored the challenges associated with automating small series production and the growing demand for “high mix and low volume” manufacturing. We discovered how robotic development aligned with the need for enhanced flexibility. We delved into how robotic systems could seamlessly adapt to changes in the production line, including design and process modifications, all without requiring extensive reconfiguration time. However, it was essential to highlight the complexity that could arise if the solution wasn’t meticulously developed. Participants joined us to gain valuable insights into the world of flexible automation in robotics.
The upcoming webinar will feature two AI talks as follows:
Synergizing AI and Industry 4.0: This talk explores the dynamic interplay of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Industry 4.0, showcasing AI’s role in enhancing productivity and Digital Twins’ real-time monitoring, as well as how AAS standardizes data exchange. The session unveils the transformative potential of these technologies through practical applications and case studies, offering a roadmap for organizations navigating the complex terrain of the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
Application-oriented AI research with the Innovative Retail Laboratory for the Retail of the Future: In the context of this technological evolution, it raises questions about the future of the retail sector and how artificial intelligence can benefit both customers and employees. To address these inquiries, the Innovative Retail Laboratory (IRL) at the German Research Centre for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI) is conducting extensive research. This talk introduces the IRL and provides examples of its demonstrators, illustrating the practical applicability of artificial intelligence in shaping the future of retail.
In this one-hour webinar, we have explored the essential domain of Operational Technology (OT) security, a field gaining prominence due to the increasing integration of digital technology into critical infrastructures such as energy production and manufacturing. Through this session, we aimed to provide a nuanced understanding of risk assessments, illustrate the unique aspects of OT versus IT security, and offer concrete mitigation strategies. By integrating real-world case studies, the webinar provided attendees with a balanced view and actionable insights to enhance the security posture of their respective OT environments.
During this webinar, Inès Baer, Labour market data & analytics from ADEM, has performed a very interactive presentation of the labour market trends on Digital Skills, namely the most in-demand jobs and skills. This session also gave the viewer the opportunity to discover the training offer available in Luxembourg to address these needs and trends.
The L-DIH performed a thorough review of the most relevant training courses for manufacturing industry players willing to embark on a digital transformation journey or seeking to improve employees’ skills on digital topics. We invite you to explore the catalogue and empower your workforce with the knowledge and skills it needs to excel in today’s modern manufacturing industry.
