The German Plattform Industrie 4.0, the and the initiative are guiding and acitvely shaping the process of digitalisation in their respective countries. Currently, the initiatives will increasingly work together to secure and expand the DACH countries' strong position in the area of Industrie 4.0.
The partners will focus on promoting collaboration on test centers and developing use cases, especially with regard to the needs of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). In addition, the initiatives will continue and deepen their exchange of information on Industry 4.0, in particular on reference architectures, standards and norms.
On April 23, 2018 the the DACH regionalcooperation on Industrie 4.0 in the DACH region was agreed upon during the Hannover Fair. It involves a regular exchange between the platforms with two meetings a year. A first, important step of the cooperation is the participation of the country platforms at the annual conference of the platform in Austria on 12.12.2018.
