Reinforce the scientific excellence and innovation capacity in logistic technology of the University of Miskolc (UMi)
The overall aim of the UMi-TWINN project is to reinforce the scientific excellence and innovation capacity in logistic systems of the University of Miskolc (UMi) and its high-quality Twinning partners for the benefit of different industries and logistics markets. To achieve this aim, the 3 year project will build upon the existing strong research and innovation base of UMi and its twinning partners Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft e.V. IFF (Fraunhofer), Technische Universitaet Graz (TU Graz) and Intelligentsia Consultants (Intelligentsia).
The UMi-TWINN project aims to boost UMi and twinning partners' scientific excellence and innovation capacity in logistics technologies, as well as implementing a research and innovation strategy focusing on the following three sub-topics:
- Design of logistic systems and networks;
- Intelligent transport systems;
- Dynamical analysis of materials handling machines.
UMi is the third largest institution of higher education in Hungary, with 11,000 students and almost 1200 employees including 720 researchers among them. As a result of its 260-year-old history UMi is involved in research and training work both in an extremely wide area of the technical and engineering sciences and in a broad profile of the social and humanistic sciences, offering unique possibilities in several professional fields.
The Institute of Logistics besides its educational activity has a wide range of research and development activities, such as: dynamical analysis of materials handling machines, computer integrated logistics, information logistics, design of logistic systems and networks, production and service logistics, warehouse logistics, stock management, recycling logistics, quality assurance logistics, maintenance logistics, global logistics, supply and distribution systems, logistics management, intelligent transport systems. The institute has taken part in elaboration of industrial research projects for a long time.
