The future of industry

The digital transformation of European manufacturing will bring our industry to the next level, create jobs and economic growth, and allow traditional sectors to become more sustainable and competitive. To bridge the gap between policymaking and industry expertise, DIGITALEUROPE has established the Digital Manufacturing Executive Council, the key driver of our work on the future of industry.

Use cases: sustainability

A more digital and greener industry

Digital has enormous enabling potential to facilitate the EU’s transition to a low carbon circular economy. According to a recent study, digital technologies have the potential to enable a 20 per cent reduction of global CO2 emissions by 2030, in particular in traditional sectors like energy, transport, construction, agriculture and manufacturing. That is ten times more than we produce as a sector.

Discover our use cases exploring how digital is helping manage resources more efficiently and improve transport through automated and connected mobility.

Industrial data

Transforming manufacturing through industrial data sharing

Industrial data holds great potential to relaunch European manufacturing industries. Digital platforms are fostering data access and exchange among industries, creating a collaborative environment that accelerates innovation. This is encouraging more and more companies to take up technologies such as artificial intelligence and Industrial Internet of Things.
