Reconfiguring craft beer production towards circularity and individualized consumer preferences
(Competitive calls for third parties within H2020)
Start date: 01/11/2021
Duration: 6 months
Topic: DT-ICT-07-2018-2019 – Digital Manufacturing Platforms for Connected Smart Factories
Total budget: EUR 133 000
BEERco2 is a funded experiment under the KYKLOS 4.0 project‘s 1st Open Call for innovative solutions to improve digital manufacturing processes. Within the period of 6 months, it will develop and verify a roadmap for technologies and activities that will allow small craft brewers to transition to a circular economy model and consumer-centric, on-demand manufacturing. Brewers will be able to transparently provide evidence of the carbon footprint generated by beer production and appeal to modern consumers looking for both product quality and sustainable and environmentally responsible production by leveraging KYKLOS services, specifically PLM, Cyber-physical infrastructure, and KYKLOS 4.0 Interface.
The BEERco2 consortium consists of 3 partners:
DNET (Serbia), the BEERco2 coordination, will provide expertise in the domain of designing and provisioning turnkey IoT/AI solutions.
Magnus Kraft (Serbia) will provide a test site for the BEERco2 experiment as well as expertise in breewing technology and processes.
InoSense (Serbia) will provide expertise in the fields of communication and business support.
About KYKLOS 4.0: This H2020 project seeks to create an innovative Circular Manufacturing ecosystem based on novel CPS and AI-based technologies, enhanced with novel production mechanisms and algorithms, focusing on personalised products with extended life cycles and promoting energy efficient and low material consumption intra-factory production processes, resulting in lower greenhouse gas emissions and air pollutants. KYKLOS 4.0 will demonstrate the transformative effects that CPS (Circular Production System), PLM (Product Life Management), LCA (Life Cycle Analysis), AR (Augmented Reality), and AI (Artificial Intelligence) technologies and methodologies will have on the Circular Manufacturing Framework in a realistic, measurable, and replicable manner.
BEERco2 AT A GLANCE
BEERCo2 Dissemination and Exploitation Strategy
Within BEERco2, InoSens will coordinate communication, dissemination, and exploitation efforts. InoSens will aim to ensure consumer-centric development of the BEERco2 solution as well as explore and set the ground for post-project exploitation of the BEERco2 solutions. These efforts will be aimed at not only promoting our respective experiment but also contributing actively to the overall visibility of the KYKLOS4.0 project and leveraging its networks for post-project commercialization.
