We are more than proud to announce that the Austrian Research Promotion Agency FFG has decided to support our "Intelligent Dolly Project" with their funding program "Basisprogramm".

The FFG is the national funding agency for industrial research and development in Austria. FFG funding schemes play an important role in generating new knowledge, developing new products and services, and enhancing competitiveness in the global marketplace.

The intelligent Dolly represents a fundamentals-based metallurgical modeling in combination with data driven modeling. In more buzzword driven words: Dolly connects Digital Twins with methods of Artificial Intelligence in order to combine the strengths of both approaches. Dolly will be developed for steelmaking processes and aims to improve process efficiency, reduce production costs and to ensure high quality steels.

The budget is around 1.5M€, distributed over the next 2.5 years. Already now, we can say that this project is not just a milestone - it is the foundation for promoting our idea of LIVING DIGITAL METALLURGY.

Thanks to everybody who has supported us in achieving this remarkable goal! We are so much looking forward to a trend-setting project.
