“Industry 4.0 AITU” Science and Innovation Center

One of the urgent current tasks is digitalization (automation) and the integration of technological, production and business processes of enterprises, from product development and procurement to production, logistics and maintenance during operation. All this taken together must be supported by an appropriate integrated digital platform (which is understood as an automated information system that uses all the necessary set of data, models, algorithms, methods and tools) and along with the entire “chain” make up the ecosystem of a digital enterprise. This problem can be solved through the use of scientific and innovative IT solutions within the “Industry 4.0”.


To be a center for ensuring the massive integration of information technologies into industry, large-scale automation of business processes and the use of artificial intelligence to maintain and increase the competitive advantages of the country’s enterprises.


To create automated production facilities monitored in real-time, considering changing external conditions through scientific research in the industrial sector and the application of its results.
