The challenges and opportunities of data sharing across complex industrial value chains

Data can be a real game changer for companies, but data sharing in an industrial context is complicated. Especially in sectors where complex value chains are in place, access to data is not always possible for every stakeholder. In order to support companies in identifying and overcoming the existing obstacles, Sirris is organising a seminar aiming at showing the potential of data sharing to enhance industrial innovation. (seminar is in English)

Next to enabling new data-driven business models, data allows one to acquire new insights to optimise production processes, predict machine failure, profile product usage or set up data-oriented start-ups. However, having access to data and/or collecting it might not always be trivial, and one of the main obstacles to further advance in regard to data-driven innovation remains data sharing. 

In many situations, not every party in the value chain has access to the data or has the right to exploit the data, and therefore cannot make an intelligent use of this data. In order to support companies in identifying and overcoming these obstacles, Sirris is organising a seminar on May 30th (in Zwijnaarde) aiming at showing the potential of data sharing to enhance industrial innovation, in the context of the EluciDATA and OWOME initiatives. Read more about the context of the seminar on the sirris blog.

This seminar aims to provide an answer to the following questions through firsthand testimonials by companies across several sectors: 

  • What are the major technological, legal and business challenges related to data sharing?
  • How are these challenges addressed in different application domains (e.g. energy)?
  • What is the potential for new technologies as for example blockchain in this domain?
