CHARM (Challenging environments tolerant Smart systems for IoT and AI) develops IoT solutions for harsh industrial conditions in the manufacturing industry using ECS technologies, developed to withstand combinations of severe thermal, mechanical and chemical stress. The solutions will be demonstrated in use cases covering condition monitoring, predictive maintenance and real-time quality assurance. 

Key challenges

Digitalisation of the European manufacturing industries is the key to their continuous renewal and competitiveness. Harsh environmental conditions in manufacturing processes and end user environment may slow down the opportunities brought by IoT (Internet of Things) and AI (Artificial Intelligence). The CHARM project is set to solve this challenge.

How we reached the goals

Spinverse coordinated the project proposal and consortium building and has been selected by the partners to support in project planning and management as well as in administration and facilitation as the project progresses.

Key takeaways

CHARM is an extensive three-year project with 37 partners from 10 European countries and a total budget of 29 M€. It is co-financed via ECSEL Joint Undertaking, EU Horizon 2020, national funding agencies of the participating countries and the consortium partners. The partners come from Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Finland, Germany, Italy, Latvia, the Netherlands, Poland and Switzerland.
