CIRPASS is funded by the European Commission, is a collaborative initiative to lay the foundations for the implementation and expansion of a standards-based digital product passport (DPP) with an initial focus on ICT, batteries and textiles.
RISE participates as an associated partner in the project consortium consisting of 30 partners representing thousands of industrial, research, digital, international, standards, organizations across Europe and beyond. The 18-month project will respond to the European Commission's call to create a clear concept for DPP, define a cross-sectoral product data model and DPP system with proven benefits for the circular economy, and develop roadmaps for its implementation. RISE focuses here on information needs linked to textiles and batteries.
CIRPASS has the following objectives:
- Present a clear cross-sectoral definition and description of DPP
- Define a cross-sectoral product data model for DPP useful for the circular economy
- Clarify the requirements related to product identification
- Propose an open DPP data exchange protocol adapted to the needs of circular economy stakeholders and propose such a protocol based on updated digital technologies
- Build stakeholder consensus on key data for circularity and related open European and global vocabulary standards to be included in the DPP for batteries, electronics and textiles
- Develop case studies and roadmaps for pilots, implementation and generation of business value based on cross-sector DPP
Specialist competence regarding information needs for circularity, especially regarding textiles and batteries
