The Industrial Committee consists of start-ups, SMEs and large companies that have a particular interest in the topics covered by EuProGigant, see synergies with their businesses or would like to contribute to the project.
The role of the Industrial Committee is to work alongside the project and ensure that EuProGigant is working towards targeted technology development.
The Committee has the specific tasks of supporting the project partners in defining requirements and planning IT structures. Members of the Committee take part in strategy discussions, advise on requirements related to industry and results, consult on implementation, identify industry requirements, supply services or even hardware in some cases, and they have first access to take part in any associated research projects.
At the start of the project, the members elected four company representatives and two association representatives each from Austria and Germany. These elected members form the Industrial Advisory Board and work closely with the project’s steering committee.
