Three working groups have recently been created by the EC, to support the implementation of the Digitising European Industry action plan.
As a follow-up to the high-level governance meeting of the European Platform of National Initiatives on Digitising Industry held in Brussels on 21 November 2017, three working groups have been created:
This first working group aims to engage Digital Innovation Hubs to support SMEs in their digitisation, develop sustainable models for services and collaboration through the network of Digital Innovation Hubs, and help companies with training and skills development activities.
This group will reflect on future partnerships for research and innovation as a means for strategic programming at the EU level across European, national and regional programmes and as a vehicle for critical co-investments in Europe’s key digital innovation challenges.
The main objective of the third working group is to contribute to leading the global development of critical digital industrial platforms, including by identifying means to accelerate the essential standardisation of such platforms.
Any interest in participating in the working group meetings can be communicated to the Commission using the following email address: firstname.lastname@example.org

This initiative aims to reinforce the EU’s competitiveness in digital technologies and ensure that European businesses can draw the full benefits from digital innovation. The DEI actions revolve around five main pillars:
