SDU Industry 4.0 Lab

SDU Industry 4.0 Lab

The purpose of SDU's new I4.0 Lab is to support cutting edge research, innovation and education in the technologies underpinning Industry 4.0. It is our ambition to provide one of Europe’s most advanced facilities in this field.

With a planned investment of DKK 140 million within the next four years, SDU's new I4.0 Lab will consist of:

  • Flexible robotics and automation solutions
  • A digital design lab with virtual reality and augmented reality equipment

In the Laboratory, which continues to be developed, hyper flexible production facilities can be developed and analyzed in an interdisciplinary collaboration between students, researchers, and the industry. Furthermore there will be a close linkage to relevant existing facilities. The activities created in the laboratory and corresponding activities are in close and integrated collaboration with industrial partners - this applies to technology suppliers as well as manufacturing companies.

The facilities will support the interdisciplinary collaboration that is aimed at unfolding big opportunities for the industry, which will be essential for Denmark's competitiveness and may contribute to better working conditions in Danish production. Furthermore, we strive to strengthen the local basis for a global export of I4.0 equipment with potential for exponential growth.
