Ingenjör4.0 – CALL for module area team participation

An Invitation to additional researchers and research teams to participate in the Upskilling of Swedish industry for future smart manufacturing in the area of Industry4-5.0


This call is initiated in the process of exploring procedures and gathering experience for life-long learning in co-operation between Academia and Industry.

During the last two years the Swedish Production Academy together with Production2030 have initiated e-learning for industry using a ”20 hours study module concept”, applied on Industry 4.0. Read More


The offer here is to sign up you self or your University team to join in with the Ingenjör4.0 initially established ”module teams” (see the table1 below) and participate in the development of the module area strategy, development and teaching in the 16 module areas we have today.

The16 module areas are framing the initial knowledge areas critical to develop to support successful Swedish implementation of ”the future smart industry” supporting a world leading position.

What can you ANTICIPATE if you JOIN a module TEAM?

As a member of an Ingenjör4.0 module team you are expected to participate together with the coordinating University, partner Universities and Industrial partners in the planning of the module area (including suggesting the budget), participate at project meetings and workshops as well as develop and teach in the module areas sub-modules.

We think you as an applicant have excellent research and/or practical implementation track in the module area subject areas and can complete the current teams with special skills and ideas. We also think you have a strong motivation to develop life-long learning and e-learning in co-operation between industry and academia.

What are the FINANCIAL frames and possibilities for me?

As a member of a module team, you are entitled to share the budget share according to the planning by the module team and decided by the project management. The frame for the module development, module “maintenance” and teaching within a module area is for the four years about 840kSEK to be distributed within the module area active partners.

The 16 MODULE AREAS and current module teams

The current set up is 16 module areas where 15 modules today have implemented the initial sub-module.  The content of the sub-modules can be found as described in figure 1 below at

Can any organization apply?

The project is managed by the Swedish Production Academy and module areas are coordinated by Academy partners.  Additional academic departments from the group of 13 Academy Universities ( ) and Swedish Universities outside the Production Academy is also welcome to apply via the form on the home page.  We are looking for a creative mixture of the best researchers and educators in the 16 module areas possible based on the current module area teams (table 1).

International partners, Companies and other organizations are possible to connect to the project IF applying to Vinnovas statues but ONLY ON INVITATION from the project management -contact or  OR connect to some of your local University members of the Swedish Production Academy presidium who in turn can contact the project management and support the case.

What if I’m already connected to a module area but want to contribute to another module area team?

In this case, please submit your information on the form below to let us know who is interested to be connected to the individual module area teams.
