Aligning Reference Architectures, Open Platforms and Large Scale Pilots in Digitising European Industry


Digital Transformation (DT) is a key priority for the EU in its efforts to support the rise of competitivity of the European industry. Manufacturing, agriculture, energy and healthcare represent key fields for the deployment of the EU strategy for digitalisation. In this DT framework, the advanced technology role is instrumental. The EU-funded OPEN DEI project aims to detect gaps, encourage synergies, support regional and national cooperation, and enhance communication among the Innovation Actions implementing the EU DT strategy. The project aims to compare reference architectures and enable a unified data platform, to create large scale pilots and contribute to a digital maturity model, to build a data ecosystem and to strive for standardisation.
