  • Call for tender: H2020-DT-2019-1, DigiPrime has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement N° 873111
  • Domain: Circular economy

DigiPrime aims at creating a digital Manufacturing Platform for connected Smart Factories to have a new concept of Circular Economy, overcoming the current information asymmetry among value-chain stakeholders, in order to unlock new circular business models based on the data-enhanced recovery and re-use of functions and materials from high value-added and post-use products with a cross-sectorial approach.

DigiPrime will create and operate a federated model of digital platforms for cross-sector business in the Circular Economy, for many different domains. Nodes of the federation will offer interoperable functions and data, that can be accessed by other nodes, combined with local data and services, connectors and open interfaces will enable easy integration of new services, provided by third parties, that are not made accessible outside.

Specific attention will be devoted to creating trustable data sharing mechanisms, preserving the confidentiality of business-critical data. Security and sovereignty of information will be guaranteed by smart contracts and tracked through block-chain.

The main features of the platform can be grouped into the following services:

  • Value chain-oriented, linked to the product life cycle (product information management, product co-creation, LCA-LCC for eco-design, identification of logistic barriers, legislative support).
  • Operational vertical services, specific to the sector (monitoring of supply and demand, planning and control of production, testing and certification of materials).
