Get Involved in the ZDMP Ecosystem - Open Call Funding

The initial ZDMP ecosystem includes stakeholders from the automotive, electronics, and construction sectors. This ecosystem will be extended through a EUR 3.2 Million outreach programme. 3rd parties will have the opportunity to join the ecosystem through open calls that engage companies working in the area of Industry 4.0. The open calls will allow SMEs and start-ups to conduct pilots using the ZDMP platform, services and applications, gaining insight into the performance, acceptance and viability, whilst exploring and seeding initial commercial relationships for the platform business model. The strategy for open calls will be published around January 2021 with the 1st round of open calls will be opened early 2021 with the 2nd round late 2021.
