3if.eu was conceived as an acronym for Industrial IoT In Flanders (3x I), Industry 4.0 In  Flanders and Industrial Internet In Flanders  but was turned into Industrial IoT In Factories in 2020 after seeing the succesful development of IIoT in Manufacturing. in Flanders it started as a project by LSEC – Leaders in Security vzw (link www.lsec.eu) and industrial partners to support the development of the Industrial Internet and Industry 4.0 development in Europe. For the last decade our group of experts has developed expertise, best practices and use cases  toward digital transformation for manufactuing. The 3if activities aim to directly support manufacturing companies in Flanders, providing access to expertise, experiences and knowledge. A series of use cases, reference cases and business cases will be collected and made available to a wide group of companies and organisations interested in the development of the Internet of Things (IoT), smart sensors, cloud computing and data analytics for industrial purposes. 

If you are : 

  •           A manufacturing company interested in exploring, or applying internet technologies into your production environment
  •           A production or manufacturing company already applying internet technologies into your production environment, and would like to expand that with sensors and data analytics tools and technologies
  •           A provider of industrial internet technologies, industry 4.0, iot platforms and technologies or related technology and service providers
  •           A professional expert in the domain of manufacturing, engineering for manufacturing, MSP, ERP for industry, application engineering, app builders, sensor technology developers or data analytics
  •           An academic researcher in any of the above domains, interested in applying your expertise in the field and looking for application partners
  •           An industrial internet, iot or related consortium or association, interested in teaming up sharing expertise and experiences across Europe

More about Digital Factories and Digital Manufacturing Platforms with ConnectedFactories

3if.eu and LSEC are a partner in the European projects Connected Factories and Connected Factories 2. Together with technology and research partners from Germany, France, Spain, Italy, Finland, UK, Belgium and Hungary, the project developed a series of so called "Pathways", driveways towards factory automation and digitalisation. Built around some prospecive factory concepts such as Autonomous Production or Hyperconnected Factories, a series of digital platforms were identified and their components, challenges, business models, cybersecurity challenges, integration relations and other considerations to put in place when conceptualizing the future of the factories. Part of the European Commission Research program, it aims to support the Innovation Actions and Research in Digital Manufacturing platforms and cybersecurity for manufacturing.
