WEBINAR: Common European Data Spaces for Smart Manufacturing – Maintenance


Wednesday 29th July 2020  |  9:30 AM – 11:30 AM (CEST)

Following the Data Strategy from February 2020, the Commission intends to fund the establishment of EU-wide common, interoperable data spaces in strategic sectors. Such spaces aim at overcoming legal and technical barriers to data sharing across organisations, by combining the necessary tools and infrastructures and addressing issues of trust and confidence, for example by way of common rules developed for the spaces.

The Commission intends to support the establishment of nine common European data spaces, including a Common European industrial (manufacturing) data space, to support the competitiveness and performance of the EU’s industry.

This webinar discussed how industrial-grade data spaces for specific value chains in the manufacturing sector could be defined. The focus has been on maintenance data and activities, e.g. by continuously monitoring and exchanging data on machine status, breakdowns, service orders, etc. Applications include predictive maintenance and maintenance management. End users are machine users, machine vendors, and maintenance service providers and remanufacturers. The webinar focused especially on the machine tool sector, and was supported by CECIMO and VDMA.

Now available the recording of the WEBINAR here.
