The MIRAGED Strategic Programme has reached its halfway point with all objectives met to date and with great satisfaction of the project partners. This was clarified during the last follow-up meeting of 2021, in which the consortium highlighted the good progress of the project despite the difficulties arising from the COVID-19 pandemic.
During this meeting, held remotely, the representatives of the five technology centres that make up the consortium of this initiative (Ikerlan, CEIT, Idonial, IDEKO and CTC) reviewed the evolution of the fields in which each partner is working and the general indicators of the MIRAGED project, whose priority objective is to improve the training in this field of the research groups of the centres. The targets set for the second half of the initiative were also revised.
Verónica González de Lena, head of Industry and Energy at CTC, presented the progress made by the team of researchers at the only technology centre in Cantabria. CTC continues to make progress in identifying structures and mechanical components in different sectors to apply digital twins and developing algorithms that allow real-time knowledge of the state of the element this technology is inspecting.
In this sense, CTC continues to strengthen its position as a centre of excellence in the development and transfer of knowledge on digital twins in the industrial field and expand its capabilities to develop and integrate this technology in industrial processes.
In addition, the meeting also included a training session given by IDONIAL. The technology centre presented to the MIRAGED consortium two training courses on the simulation of discrete events and digital twins of industrial processes and the analysis of distortions due to the welding process. These training days are a great opportunity for researchers at the CTC Technology Centre to generate greater technological knowledge and learn new methodologies and research for developing innovative initiatives.
The Miraged Strategic Programme is part of the Call for the Accreditation Procedure and granting aid to “Cervera” Technology Centres of Excellence for 2019 (CER-20191001). Its main objectives are to foster leadership and collaboration in the industrial field, to promote specialisation in the priority technologies of the Cervera Network and to improve the impact on the economy.
