L-DIH Webinars

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.

Our next events

10 July 2024: Mastering SCADA: ISA112 SCADA Life cycle and Architecture Insights

In summer 2022, the ISA112 SCADA Systems Standards Committee released the second draft of its new ISA112 SCADA Systems Management Life cycle. This life cycle, covering project concepts through commissioning and operations, includes eight core activity groups with individual work processes. These groups provide a framework for long-term SCADA systems management. Since 2017, the life cycle has been widely adopted by utilities for both project-based and long-term management.

The SCADA functional architecture, similar to the Purdue Enterprise Reference Architecture (PERA) model, describes the integration of system elements from sensors to business enterprises. It supports scalable systems from small local setups to thousands of connections, including IoT and cloud integration.

Our past events 

13 June 2024: OPC UA: Interoperability from Sensor to IT including CRA-Security – Status and Trends

Secure interoperability is the key to digitalisation in an increasingly connected world. Learn more about OPC UA (IEC62541), the world’s largest ecosystem for industrial interoperability, which is evolving from the field level to “interoperability with IT and IT-internal applications” such as Digital Twin, DataSpaces, Metaverse and more. In addition, EU governance regulations such as the Data Act or Cyber Resilience Act (CRA) or Product Passports such as the Battery Passport pose a multitude of challenges for mechanical and plant engineering. Learn how OPC UA addresses the CRA and see a prototype of the Digital Product Passport (DPP) including the Battery Passport.

 

23 April 2024: AI Act – For (Truly) Responsible AI

The AI Act is becoming a must in the professional landscape, affecting all sectors within organizations, from research and development to marketing, human resources management, regulatory compliance, legal, etc. This webinar explored the practical implications of the regulation and how it could influence innovation. In particular, the integration of the principles of the AI Act into a company’s strategy for more ethical AI was addressed. Beyond the examination of the legal aspects, concrete practical cases were discussed, offering tangible perspectives on the application of these principles in daily professional life.

 

20 February 2024: Flexible Automation: Challenges and Opportunities in Modern Industry 

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.

30 January 2024: Revolution through Industry 4.0 with AI for Seamless Human-Robot Interactions and Transforming Retail Experiences

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.

 

3 November 2023 : WEBINAR: A self-defending Operational Technology (OT) in manufacturing and industry

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.

 

9 June 2023: WEBINAR: Digital skills & Industry: labour market trends and training offer

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.
