Setting the Pathway Towards a Common European Manufacturing Data Space



Data Space 4.0 is an industrial initiative, driven by the national Industry 4.0 initiatives, supported by the Digital Factory Alliance and funded by the Digital Europe Programme from the European Commission.
Data Space 4.0 is an Industry 4.0 community born to create a unified voice and a shared pathway and governance model for scale-up of cross-sectorial manufacturing data value networks.
Data Space 4.0 will support the community collaboration to align and set the foundations for a harmonised, yet autonomous, roll out and scale-up of a sovereign manufacturing data space continuum.
Data Space 4.0 brings together national Industry 4.0 initiatives, European data space think tanks, industrial associations, knowledge and innovation networks, data 4.0 model standardisation initiatives and European networks for SME digital transformation to join efforts and identify common principles for sharing industrial data at the EU level
Data Space 4.0 is open to all the digital and manufacturing community concerned with unlocking new data-powered business models and develop rich data value chains in manufacturing products, factories and supply chains.
