Introducing DigiPLACE, the Digital Platform framework for Construction in Europe

DigiPLACE is an EU-funded project with a budget of €1 million aiming at creating a roadmap for a Digital Platform for Construction in Europe. The digital industrial platform is an operating system that integrates different technologies and various applications and services.
In modern economy, digitalisation is a major driver of productivity growth across industries and services. To remain competitive in an increasingly globalised market, the EU economy must transform itself digitally. The construction sector is characterised by a high presence of SMEs, low capitalisation, a low rate of higher educated employees, low investment in innovation, and a long supply chain. Moreover, in the EU market, different languages, taxation, and regulatory frameworks are obstacles to synergies. This project is about charting the modernization path of European construction industry under the headline of Construction 4.0. 
This project is the first ever proposal targeting the digital transformation of the construction industry to receive EU funding from Directorate General for Communications Networks, Content and Technology (DG CONNECT).
DigiPLACE is a framework allowing the development of future digital platforms as common ecosystems of digital services that will support innovation, commerce, etc. The project will define a Reference Architecture Framework for digital construction platform based on an EU-wide consensus of a large community of stakeholders. This will result in a strategic roadmap for successful implementation of this architecture.
DigiPLACE will rely on a relevant set of partners, linked third parties and an Advisory Board. The consortium, composed of an unprecedented collaboration between EU construction industry representatives, a strong academic partnership and the support of 3 countries’ public authorities will work together during 18 months. From September 2019, the project partners will collaborate to create the framework for the digital platform. The 19 partners from 11 countries led by Politecnico di Milano will pave the way for future projects in the field of digital construction. FIEC will be in charge of co-ordinating the project’s Advisory Board. Start: 01-09-2019 - End: 28-02-2021 

Co-financed by the European Commission (more information here)
