Workshop on advanced and interoperable digital business-to-business platforms for smart factories and energy

DEI

Users and suppliers of business-to-business (B2B) digital industrial platforms are invited to discuss user requirements, existing commercial and community-driven solutions, and the best ways to address the challenges they face.

Digital industrial platforms integrate different digital technologies and real-world applications, processes, products, and services in industrial environments such as smart factories.

European industry needs to come to agreements on functions and interfaces for those platforms, reference architectures and interaction protocols. By doing this, they can create market opportunities leading to ecosystems and standards.

To support the development and piloting of strategic next-generation platforms, the EU is investing around €300 million  between 2018 and 2020. The aim is to foster cooperation of stakeholders across value chains, user-supplier integration, and fast adoption of emerging standards.

Within this context, the European Commission will host a workshop where users and suppliers of these industrial platforms will have the chance to discuss the current user needs and how to address future challenges on this market.

Further information: agenda and detailed description of the workshop.
Registration:  here.

The first day will focus on users’ perspectives and during the second day solution providers will present how they can address the identified needs and requirements.

The workshop will as well look at how to integrate evolving technologies in emerging areas such as artificial intelligence and blockchain. 

A report with main discussions will be published after the workshop. Conclusions and recommendations will also be fed to the High Level Governance Meeting of the National Initiatives on digitising industry.
