State of play and possible future developments of the
Digital Product Passport (DPP)


CIRPASS Final Event
State of play and possible future developments of the Digital Product Passport (DPP)
 

Are you interested in how digitalisation can support the circular economy?

With Digital Product Passports (DPP) expected to come into force by 2027, and gradually expanded to a wide scope of product groups, this event will contribute to your understanding of DPP deployment. 

The CIRPASS final public event will once again bring together European industries, policymakers, R&D centres, standardisation organisations, circular economy and sustainability actors and digital solution providers to learn more about the current state and possible future developments of the Digital Product Passport (DPP). 

This will be a CIRPASS event in collaboration with the Product Information 4.0 and BatteryPass projects  .

📍Full-day online event

🗓 Tuesday, 5 March 2024 from 9h30 to 17h30 CET.

Are you interested in how digitalisation can support the circular economy?

With Digital Product Passports (DPP) expected to come into force by 2027, and gradually expanded to a wide scope of product groups, this event will contribute to your understanding of DPP deployment. 

The CIRPASS final public event will once again bring together European industries, policymakers, R&D centres, standardisation organisations, circular economy and sustainability actors and digital solution providers to learn more about the current state and possible future developments of the Digital Product Passport (DPP). 

The focus of the event will be on critical issues still facing the DPP, exploring “Why, What, How, and When” aspects related to DPP development and future deployment. These discussions will be informed by presentations of CIRPASS project results, as well as those of two other participating projects, Product Information 4.0 and BatteryPass. 

Attendees will gain a wider understanding of the DPP’s current and future challenges and opportunities, as well as how these three projects are working together to inspire and contribute to the broader work of the EC on the DPP. There will be two discussion panels and opportunities will be given to the audience to ask questions and interact with EC personnel and DPP experts.
