The i3-MARKET backplane is implemented by the consortium in three industrial domains, which examine the viability of the implementation, test its reliability and validate whether it is scalable in real industrial environments.

The pilots are implemented in the following domains:

  • Automotive Sector: the pilot allows the automation in generating metadata descriptions about the parts included in the extensive list of BOMs, thus expanding marketplace’s functionality. 
  • Smart Manufacturing: the pilot enables SIEMENS to explicitly deny or give access to its operational data, and withdraw the endorsement at any time.
  • Environmental: the pilot makes masses of under-exploited data from stakeholders in the environment and climate domains accessible for new players in the field in particular SMEs. 


The i3-MARKET project addresses the growing demand for a single European Data Market Economy through marketplace platforms’ renovation. It demonstrates, through industrial implementations, that data economy growth is possible.

The i3-MARKET consortium provides technologies for trustworthy (secure and reliable), data-driven collaboration and federation of existing and future marketplace platforms.

Special attention is given to industrial data and to sensitive commercial data assets from SMEs to large industrial corporations.
