DigiPLACE online information session

The first DigiPLACE online information session was jointly organised by the European Rental Association (ERA) and the Committee for European Construction Equipment (CECE) in April 2020. The event gathered over ninety participants from the construction field, including ERA and CECE members and the DigiPLACE partners.

ERA Manager Carole Bachmann moderated the event and officially opened the DigiPLACE online information session. The session started with welcome speeches from the European Commission by DigiPLACE Project Officer Rositsa Georgieva and both co-organisers, namely CECE President Niklas Nillroth and ERA Secretary General Michel Petitjean.

The session continued with a presentation of the DigiPLACE project by its coordinator Claudio Mirachi from Politecnico di Milano.

Alain Zarli, ECTP Secretary General, provided an overview of the level of digitalisation of the construction sector and the level of implementation of digital technologies in the EU construction sector. Next, Nicole Naville from CSTB took the floor to outline the DigiPLACE Reference Architecture Framework (RAF).

The event was concluded by CECE Secretary General Riccardo Viaggi who thanked all participants for joining and encouraged attendees to join the project's Community of Stakeholders, which will contribute to create communities of practice in Member States focused on enhancing and accelerating the uptake of digitisation by the construction sector.

The online information session represented an opportunity to gather project members and stakeholders of the sector to discuss the progress of the project and to raise awareness on it.
