- Industrial research on an open and scalable Digital Product Passport (DPP) solution for the habitat sector.
The HABITPASS project aims to research and develop a Digital Product Passport (hereinafter referred to as DPP) solution that allows for a range of necessary and high-value services/applications for the habitat sector and its value chain. This solution should be easily adaptable and scalable to encompass more products and companies within the sector.
The DPP is a set of data and digital information that accompanies the product throughout its lifecycle, essentially serving as its digital identity. The specific content of the DPP depends on the intended purpose/application. Data/information can be input into the passport at various controlled points along its lifecycle, and this information is of great utility to downstream stakeholders in the value/supply chain, although, in some cases, it may also benefit upstream stakeholders.
Transferable results to companies
HABITPASS is considered necessary and innovative for the habitat sector because:
- Currently, there is no digital passport in the habitat sector.
- It will allow companies to anticipate its future mandatory requirement as outlined in the draft Regulation on Ecodesign for Sustainable Products (ESRP).
- It will enable habitat companies to deploy new, much-needed, and high-value applications/services for themselves, their end customers, and other stakeholders in the value chain. This includes areas such as circular economy, task/process automation, communication, service expansion, new business models, authenticity, origin, and warranty, geolocation, delivery confirmation, and more.
