ConnectedFactories information sharing and analysis

The EFFRA Innovation Portal supports the public sharing of information among stakeholders. 

Should you have questions about how you can share your projects, cases and demonstrators, then please don't hesitate to contact  (Also cases that illustrate commercially available solutions are welcome)


In the taxonomy lists that are implemented on the EFFRA Innovation Portal, additional sections have been introduced that focus on digitalisation of manufacturing, including the deployment of digital platforms for manufacturing.  There are basically two components: the cross-cutting factors and the digitalisation pathways.     


See for instance these searches:   Projects and standards - Projects and business model aspects - Projects - Pathway 'Autonomous Smart Factories'.


You can download here Deliverable 3.2  that reflects the mapping of projects and project cases (produced at the end of 2019), which is mainly composed of extractions from the EFFRA Innovation Portal.


(The pathway on the picture below is the Autonomous Smart Factories pathway)




Projects, solutions and demonstrators are characterised and positioned using this structured approach.  This video explains how the digitalisation pathways and the digital mapping framework/cross-cutting factors are used to characterise and put into context cases or examples digitalisation of manufacturing:

See here an example from the NIMBLE project and how this projects is mapped on some of the key enablers and cross-cutting factors, in this case in the section 'ICT Performance Requirements - Data communication and interoperability'.
