ProcessIT.EU has released a new and updated version of the ProcessIT.EU Roadmap, which provides input to the strategic planning concerning process industrial IT- and automation for process- and manufacturing industry companies as well as critical infrastructures having similar problems and challenges. ProcessIT, a member of the AceForm4.0-project team, focuses on IT- and automation in order to better produce formulated products such as steel, pulp and paper, and chemicals.
The roadmap comprises 10 R&D areas, 9 game changers and also relevant and emerging business models of interest. Thus, the roadmap is relevant to read for all with strategic, tactical- or operational responsibilities, and need input to their planning and renewal process.
This is an updated version of the ProcessIT.EU roadmap for industrial process automation, which was initially released in 2013 to provide guidance and input for process industry companies, providers of process industrial IT- and automation solutions, researchers as well as policy makers and bodies/initiatives that craft calls for RDI-projects.
The main objective is for European process industry to stay competitive, profitable and sustainable. Thus, to support European process industry in its industrial process automation endeavours, the ProcessIT.EU Roadmap outlines three top-level needs: sustainable production, competence management and trust, security, safety and privacy.
