On 09/10 March the team of the European Research Project EuProGigant held a workshop in Vienna. At the official first part of the workshop, the new partners of the enlarged team were welcomed, and the funding bodies were briefed about the current project stage and the future objectives, especially those together with the new partners. The added partners bring some highly appreciated expertise into the project which will help to set up and demonstrate the data ecosystem that will have huge potential and benefit for SMEs in the future. As could be imagined, building an open European data infrastructure that advances a resilient, data-driven, and sustainable industry in Europe, requires knowledge from various technical fields.
The unofficial second part of the workshop aimed at planning the next concrete steps in the project and strengthening the common picture of the proposed infrastructure that is based on the GAIA-X outcomes. During the breaks, there was also the ability to visit the pilot factory 4.0, where the Vienna partners of the Technical University research on various new production procedures and approaches.
At the Hanover Fair (https://www.hannovermesse.de/en) on 17-21 April 2023, you could meet the project and get a view of the current results.
