Digitalisation, production and artificial intelligenceAccelerating the digital transformation
The digital transformation is closely connected to the dual strategy "green and digital". The EU primarily groups digital and industrial technologies in the Horizon Europe framework programme for research and innovation in Cluster 4 "Digitisation, Industry and Space".
In the area of digitalisation, digital and new technologies are promoted, as well as advanced computing and Big Data, the Next Generation Internet, artificial Intelligence and robotics.
Manufacturing technologies will also play a prominent role in the future. Digitalised, efficient production technologies and processes designed for the circular economy are to contribute to high productivity, resilience, climate neutrality and improved working conditions. Technology-driven manufacturing methods should guarantee high-precision and clean production with strategies for reuse, remanufacturing and recycling in the value chain. New materials must also be sustainable, recyclable and thus compatible with the circular economy.
