Assembly Lines In CIrculAtion

The ALICIA project has an ambitious goal: to make industries more sustainable by reusing and refurbishing second-hand equipment such as machines, robots, and conveyor belts. The project uses smart technologies such as an AI matchmaking, a Digital Shadow/Twin, and a digital marketplace to make it happen.

YAGHMA’s role in the ALICIA project is to conduct two key assessment activities:

  • ELSA (Ethical, Legal, Social Aspects) Assessment: this helps set up goals that ensure the project is focused on people and follows ethical and legal rules. This allows us to listen to needs and wants of all stakeholders involved.
  • LCA (Life Cycle Assessment): This means that we can monitor how ALICIA affects the environment. We look at all the materials and how they are used to ensure it is eco-friendly.

Since ALICIA uses digital tools like AI matchmaking, YAGHMA also works to ensure these technologies are developed and used in a responsible way.

The ALICIA project is funded by the Horizon Europe programme, and led by TUM (Technical University of Munich).
