Congratulations to our 2023 ITEA Award of Excellence winners!
On 13 September, during the 2023 ITEA Awards of Excellence ceremony in Berlin, three projects were awarded for their impressive results with great benefits for industry and society: I²PANEMA (award for 'Exceptional excellence' for outstanding results in all three categories: Innovation, Business impact and Standardisation), IVVES (award for Innovation) and SAMUEL (award for Innovation).
Hosted by ITEA Vice-chairman Jean-François Lavignon, the ITEA Awards of Excellence ceremony presented the results of the three award-winning projects and provided a great opportunity to learn from the best, as the project leaders shared what it takes and brings to create an award-winning project.
We are very proud of the impressive results that the I²PANEMA, IVVES and SAMUEL projects achieved within the ITEA programme. We invite you to learn more about these projects!
I²PANEMA’s IoT software solution optimises efficiency and sustainability in ports
Ports around the world face numerous challenges, from managing increased cargo demand to ensuring efficiency and sustainability in the face of urbanisation and labour management issues. The ITEA project I²PANEMA, comprising 17 partners from Germany, Spain and Türkiye, has integrated IoT solutions and new services for data handling in ports to enhance efficiency, sustainability and supply chain resilience in various port business cases. With a focus on data management and analysis, the project has achieved remarkable outcomes, including noise reduction, container localisation and logbook digitalisation. By leveraging IoT, I²PANEMA is revolutionising port operations.
IVVES project has developed methods for verification and validation of AI in strictly regulated domains
The use of artificial intelligence (AI) is rapidly increasing and in many domains, we experience the strong benefits of AI, including reduction in human error, 24/7 availability, unbiased decisions and faster decision-making. On the other side, more and more questions are raised concerning the use of AI on how to make sure it is safe and correct. This is especially the case for fields like transportation, finance, healthcare, industrial automation, and cyber security which are strictly regulated domains as a mistake can have huge consequences. The ITEA project IVVES has developed new verification and validation methods, ensuring the trustworthiness and reliability of AI and ML in these environments.
SAMUEL: making AM more consistent, reliable and trustworthy
Additive manufacturing (AM), also known as 3D printing in industrial production, is a rapidly progressing technology where digital designs are directly transformed into physical objects. AM opens the door to customised products, rapid prototyping and innovative production solutions. As demand for 3D printed parts grows, it is a challenge to balance certified manufacturing with cost reduction. Many actors in the field lack awareness of new advancements, whilst reconciling data collection and reuse with intellectual property protection is difficult. The ITEA project SAMUEL has created innovative solutions to help additive manufacturing users learn more and improve their work, thereby making the whole process more consistent, reliable and trustworthy.
ITEA congratulates the ITEA Award of Excellence winners for contributing to a better society!
