ECSEL-2016-2 (Innovation action - Lighthouse project)

The main objective of Productive4.0 is to achieve significant improvement in digitalising the European industry by means of electronics and ICT. Ultimately, the project aims at suitability for everyday application across all industrial sectors – up to TRL8. It addresses various industrial domains with one and the same approach of digitalisation.

What makes the project unique is the holistic system approach of consistently focusing on the three main pillars: digital production, supply chain networks and product lifecycle management. This is part of the new concept of introducing seamless automation and network solutions as well as enhancing the transparency of data, their consistence, flexibility and overall efficiency.

Currently, such a complex project can only be realised in ECSEL. The well balanced consortium consists of 45% AENEAS, 30% ARTEMIS-IA and 25% EPOSS partners, thus bringing together all ECSEL communities. Representing over 100 relevant partners from 19 EU-member states and associated countries, it is a European project, indeed.
