EFPF open call for experiments

The European Factory Platform – EFPF has allocated 2.5 Million Euros to provide Financial Support to third parties for open experimentation over the federated
EFPF. The call opens in September 2020:

  • Funding per experiment: 50.000€ – 150.000€
  • Duration: 6 months – 12 months
  • Time period for experiments: Sept 2021 – Aug 2022

The open call for experimentation supports two types of experiments:​

  • Experiments for the development, testing, validation or utilization of digital manufacturing applications and services:
    • Applications and validation of EFPF solutions in real-world digital manufacturing and supply chain scenarios.
    • Development of new tools or solutions, either by using the
      EFPF SDK or combining functionalities of
      EFPF solutions.
  • Experiments for the enhancement of
    EFPF ecosystem through the integration of innovative solutions:
    • Integration of 3rd applications in the
      EFPF federation.
    • Integration of 3rd party platforms in the
      EFPF federation through agreements on security framework, providing
      EFPF users with wider access to smart factory and digital manufacturing solutions.

2nd EFPF Review a full success

EFPF is a federated smart factory ecosystem and a digital platform that interlink different stakeholders of the digital manufacturing domain. The
EFPF platform offers unified access to a vast number of interoperable tools and services that include among others digital solutions for factory connectivity, distributed workflow design & execution, distributed production planning, shop-floor monitoring & alerting, digital twins, risk management and data analytics. The platform is based on common interoperability standards and security protocols, which allow seamless interactions and data exchange between multiple tools and service while preserving security and privacy concerns. The platform enables users to utilize innovative functionalities, experiment with disruptive approaches and develop custom solutions to maximize connectivity, interoperability and efficiency across the supply chains.

The second review for the EFPF consortium was a complete success, despite the limitations and requirements that a global pandemic brings with it. The project convinced in the evaluation with good progress and good cooperation.​ Now in the final stage, we continue with the blockchain pilots and start opening the platform for open-call experiments between September 2020 and August 2021. More information about the call and the achievements is available on the project’s website:

GoEasy improves life for asthmatics using Copernicus forecast data

GoEasys AsthmaWatch app combines Galileo satellite positioning data with live air quality monitoring data to offer people with asthma and other lung-related diseases a fine-grained air quality map of their city. As basis of several services of AsthmaWatch like early warnings of areas with low air quality, best route selection regarding pollution, current and historic pollution rendering at specific points of interest, aiming at improving life quality for people with asthma and other lung-related diseases.

The GoEasy data collection platform was extended to include data from the Copernicus Atmosphere Monitoring Service (CAMS). CAMS is one of six services of Copernicus, the European Union’s Earth observation programme, which is based on a set of satellites and ground-based observation stations. Data from CAMS is available as Gridded Binary (GRIB) files, a standard used in meteorology. It provides weather data up to three days into the future. In GoEasy we have developed advanced translation software to translate GRIB data into a JSON-based format like OGC (Open Geospatial Consortium) so that the complex GRIB format can easily be integrated and used in any IoT application. The AsthmaWatch smartphone app already showed the current level of different pollutants and visualized historical readings at a certain point-of-interest. Now it has been extended to also provide users with an instant 3-day forecast, including 8 different pollens, 5 pollutants, solar radiation and temperature.
