    URL: https://www.iip-ecosphere.eu

    In IIP-Ecosphere, we develop an ecosystem to reduce obstacles in the implementation of Artificial Intelligence (AI) applications in production and its related processes with the aim to foster intelligent production systems. A framework will be established for

    • the unconstrained introduction of AI applications in SMEs
    • new, AI-driven services and data exchange
    • true AI-driven process chains
    • cooperation of diverse stakeholders
    • increased compatibility of systems

    Funding source: Industrie

    The main objective of the project “Digitization of the central transfer procedure for temporary employment” is the evaluation of a software that enables the digital admission process of temporary contract workers. Within this project the functionality of the interfaces, in particular with regard to the impact of digitization on safety and health at work, economic efficiency, the time required and the transparency of the provided software solution are being evaluated. The research project focuses on how the new software influences different work practices in a day to day environment.

  • New workspace concepts for future research at the School of Business, Economics and Society

    (FAU Funds)

    Term: 7. February 2023 - 31. December 2023

    The research project „New spatial concepts for the research of tomorrow at the School of Business, Economics and Society” aims to design and evaluate a new collaborative spatial concept for scientific work at universities. To achieve this, existing office spaces at the School of Business, Economics and Society of Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg will be transformed into activity-based workspaces. The design will be tailored to meet the unique requirements of knowledge work and research at universities, while also taking into account possible restrictions due to structural conditions. By redesigning the office space, the project seeks to increase employee satisfaction, motivation and productivity. In this way, the university will be able to position itself as an attractive employer and a hub for generating innovations in the future.
