Operate European Digital Industry with Products and Services - OEDIPUS
Creating innovative solutions and business opportunities
OEDIPUS (Operate European Digital Industry with Products and Services) is a High Impact Initiative (HII) belonging to the Digital Industry Action Line of EIT Digital and aimed at creating innovative solutions and business opportunities for European industrial players, corporations and SMEs.
OEDIPUS pursues the creation of digital industry innovation hubs acting as hot spots of the digital transformation of the manufacturing industry.
By the end of 2018, from the joint collaboration of 8 international partners (DFKI, CEA, Océ, Cefriel, Engineering, CRF, Atos, Siemens) and a number of SMEs working together across a newly established network of five European Innovation Center, 5 new products will be commercialized, serving as "Lighthouse projects" to increase competitiveness and generate economic growth.
The outcomes of the High Impact Initiative will range from the creation of a System Integration Framework, to that of an Innovation & Collaboration Platform, a Predictive Maintenance Service for industrial printers and robots, a Robot IoT Interface, IoT Solution, and a product for Plant Condition Monitoring.
Overall, OEDIPUS represents a unique opportunity to create products and services for a "smart industry" and in particular, to explore the combination of Open Platforms with proprietary Industry Cloud and Enterprise Systems and understand which new business models this combination could generate and support.
The "Operate European Digital Industry with Products and Services" High Impact Initiative is the latest example of EIT Digital's commitment to fostering European growth and accelerating the digital transformation in progress, for the betterment of society and the improvement of the lives of citizens.
