10th SAF€RA Symposium

The 10th SAF€RA Symposium, scheduled for April 22, 2024, will be hosted by the BMK ministry in Vienna, Austria.

Location: Federal Ministry for Climate Action, Environment, Energy, Mobility, Innovation and Technology (Radetzkystraße 2, Grand Meeting Hall)

This year’s symposium presents a unique opportunity to delve into the upcoming call for projects. The 2024 call will be organized around two topics:

  • Health, safety and sustainability applications of industrial digital twinsMany industry sectors are seeing interest in digital twins for applications such as process optimization, design-for-maintainability and lifecycle management. The call aims to explore the potential of these technologies for improving health and safety in the workplace, including the intersection with safe-and-sustainable-by-design (SSbD) principles. Applications in the hydrogen economy and the circular economy will be explored.


  • Impact of algorithmic management on worker well-being and accident ratesSeveral case studies from the USA have shown that the introduction of algorithmic management technologies and automated systems that monitor, evaluation, influence and control worker behaviour in workplace settings can improve declared accident rates. At the same time, their impact on the privacy, dignity and well-being of workers is profound. The call aims to explore the lived experience of these technologies and management practices, and their possible impacts on health and safety in the workplace.
