Report: "Industrial B2B platforms: The race Europe cannot afford to lose"
On Thursday 24 October 2019, the partners of the Joint Institute for Innovation Policy (J.I.I.T.) organised a workshop on Digital Industrial B2B platforms in Brussels, Belgium, hosting policy makers and subject matter experts of knowlegde institutes.
Max Lemke, Head of Unit for Technologies and Systems for Digitising Industry of DG Connect, received the first copy of the report called "Industrial B2B platforms: The race Europe cannot afford to lose" from Henk Jan Vink, Managing Director Information and Communication Technology of TNO.
In addition, Max Lemke emphasized "This report arrived at the right moment and addresses the opportunities and challenges for digital industrial B2B platforms from a holistic perspective. The digital industrial B2B platforms landscape in Europe is in a quite fragmented situation and more cooperation is required to promote interoperability and openness for mutual benefit.”
Claire Stolwijk, one of the authors of the report called "Industrial B2B platforms: The race Europe cannot afford to lose" will present and discuss the outcomes of the study on the following events:
- On November 7 at the "roundtable connecting data exchange initiatives in Europe to identify key factors for the successful growth of the EU data market" organised by the European Commission and the Amsterdam Economic Board.
- On November 14 during the Digitising European Industry Stakeholder Forum in Madrid.
