The IndustryFusion Foundation

For a sovereign & competitive Europe in the digital age.

The IndustryFusion Foundation

Based on the long-standing and close cooperation of machine and plant manufacturers, component manufacturers, software developers as well as representatives from science and politics in the association Industry Business Network 4.0 e.V., the IndustryFusion Foundation was founded on 27 July 2020 in St. Gallen (Switzerland). 

The Foundation is intended to lay the foundations for the digitisation and networking of European industry through open standards and reference implementations (open source) and to ensure their continuous further development.

Goals of the IndustryFusion Foundation

The Foundation's overarching goals are represented by the following guiding principles:

Networking

To create a simple, open and universally applicable Industrie 4.0 networking solution (open source) that enables the digital transformation of European SMEs across the board.

Resilience

To enable European SMEs to build autonomous digital business models in order to participate globally competitively in the "new economy".

Climate protection

To make industry more ecologically sustainable with the help of technology, to promote a more efficient use of resources and thus to make a fundamental contribution to climate protection.

Education

To enable future generations to master the challenges of the "new economy" technically and commercially, as the digital transformation also requires a transformation in mindset, culture and knowledge.
IFF Foundation Guidelines

Our guiding principle

Our commitment is based on clear and transparent guidelines: The exchange between science, politics and industry makes it possible to shape the future of digital factories and define relevant recommendations for action. Every company should have the opportunity to build on open standards in order to realise its digital transformation. The effects of digitalisation will offer both economic and ecological advantages for European companies in international competition. The IndustryFusion Foundation is the pioneer of this new industry and relies on the commitment and participation of all relevant stakeholders.
