    The forthcoming Horizon Europe Work Programme 2021-2022 WP7- Digital, Industry and Space, will include funding eligible for development of Digital Twins.

    See excerpt below, the full document is attached. As an associated country, UK organisations are eligible to apply.

    HORIZON-CL4-2021-TWIN-TRANSITION-01-08: Data-driven Distributed Industrial Environments (Made in Europe Partnership) (IA)



    Proposals are expected to address one of the following technology areas for data-driven industrial environments: 

    Development of technologies and definition of specifications and standards for data, products, and/or business processes, that can be agreed and commonly used by many industrial actors, and that have the potential for the emergence of future digital value chains, identify promising industrial areas and organisational models that facilitate cooperation and collaborative product and service design among industry players facilitating industry agreements.

    In this context, “deep industrial data” means data available only internally in an industrial process (e.g., data used in a manufacturing machine or a logistic process), and not normally shared across the value chain.

    Projects are encouraged to develop toolkits of open hardware, software and toolware, and qualify the use of these to provide opportunities to SMEs to further automate and digitalise their manufacturing, through, for example, OPC-UA and Administrative Shell (AAS) as well as further development on top of these Industrial Internet standards and there inherent cyber security demands for Operational Technology environment.

    The distributed industrial computing environments will be demonstrated effectively in a minimum of two specific manufacturing applications. The topic will integrate new or existing technologies to make them practically and economically viable in the industrial world, and will encompass modern manufacturing technologies such as digital twins.


    Specific conditions

    Expected EU contribution per project

    • The Commission estimates that an EU contribution of between EUR 4.00 and 8.00 million would allow these outcomes to be addressed appropriately. Nonetheless, this does not preclude submission and selection of a proposal requesting different amounts.

    Indicative budget

    • The total indicative budget for the topic is EUR 24.00 million.

    Technology Readiness Level

    • Activities are expected to start at TRL 4 and achieve TRL 7 by the end of the project
