The recent EC Data Strategy has finally identified in the (smart) Manufacturing Industry (SMI) one of its nine main vital economic sectors where to materialize the EU Data Economy model.

The session will host leading edge experts and organizations that in the recent years have contributed to the independent success of the three domains (AI, DIH, SMI), striving to achieve a common scientific, technological, business and social ground from where to develop the coming MFF in the next seven years.

The session aims at defining the state of play, identifying opportunities and challenges and finally envisaging lessons learned and recommendation for a full deployment and adoption of AI applications in the SMI and in particular in its SMEs through dedicated DIHs Networks.
