DIGITbrain – Providing easy access to Digital Twins for SMEs
Call for experiments opens February 28th
With the DIGITbrain project, the EU wants to make Digital Twin technology available for SMEs and small businesses across Europe. With a Digital Twin, companies can rationalise the manufacturing process, make predictions regarding expected machine failures and can predict maintenance needs.
The project will support more than 20 highly innovative cross-border experiments, bringing together technology providers and manufacturing end-users, and facilitating cost-effective distributed and localised production, based on on-demand manufacturing machine capacity.
In total, the project will realise 3 waves of experiments:
- The first wave of experiments was implemented by partners of the initial project consortium. It started in July 2020 and was completed in September 2021.
- The second wave of experiments has been selected in the project's first Open Call and started in October 2021.
- The third wave of experiments - interested parties can still apply for the second Open Call
EGI is the main Cloud provider in DIGITbrain and in the first year its cloud resources have been integrated with the software stack implemented by the project through MICADOscale and CloudBroker-Platform.
The second call for experiments opens on February 28th, 2022! Check the DIGITbrain open call page for more information, requirements and updates.
EGI is a partner in DIGITbrain, an EU innovation program to give SMEs easy access to digital twins. The DIGITbrain project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program under grant agreement No 952071.
