DigiPrime and circular economy
Digital technology plays an important role in our shift towards a circular economy, which aims to optimize the use of resources in industry. Investing in innovation is good for protecting the environment and also contributes to Europe’s competitiveness. The EU-funded DigiPrime project will conceptualize a digital circular economy platform to create circular economy business models built on data-optimized recovery and reuse of functions and materials. In particular, it will develop and operate a federated model of digital platforms for cross-sector circular economy ventures. DigiPrime is validated by several cross-industry pilot studies. These consist of 20 use cases in different European sectors (automotive, renewable energy, electronics, textile, construction) and further pilot studies in new sectors, funded through an open call.
