Building an industrial data space for the European automotive industry
The Boost 4.0 initiative, which launched this week, will lead the construction of the European Industrial Data Space to improve the competitiveness of the European automotive industry. Additionally, it will guide the manufacturing industry in the introduction of big data in the factory, providing the necessary tools to obtain the maximum benefit from big data’s industrial value.
The initiative, in which EPCC is a partner, will establish a group of smart and connected factories in Europe that will serve as a guide for European industry. It will work to accelerate the adoption of big data and advanced analytic solutions in the European automotive industry through global standards, open APIs, secure digital infrastructures, trusted big data middleware and digital manufacturing platforms.
“EPCC has long experience of working with manufacturing to help spread the benefits of advanced technology. Our involvement in Boost 4.0 will enable us to share our expertise in data engineering at this critical time of transformation in the automotive industry.” Rob Baxter, group manager at EPCC
Boost 4.0 is the largest European initiative in big data for Industry 4.0, and has a budget of 20M euros with an additional private investment of 100M euros. The consortium consists of 50 companies from 16 countries and is coordinated by Innovalia Group.
