Collaborative Initiative for a Standards-based Digital Product Passport for Stakeholder-Specific Sharing of Product Data for a Circular Economy

  • Project no.352820
  • Duration 10/2022 - 03/2024

In order to realise the Circular Economy, the linear supply chain system must be transformed. Digital product passports are seen as a crucial tool for creating the necessary circular ecosystem.

Commissioned by the European Commission, the CIRPASS project brings together a consortium of 30 partners to realise the European vision of a Digital Product Passport across multiple value chains. It is funded by the EU Commission under the Digital Europe programme.

Over a period of 18 months, the foundations will be laid for the step-by-step testing and introduction of a cross-sector digital product passport. The initial focus is on the electrical and electronics, battery and textile sectors. The objectives include in particular the creation of a clear concept for the DPP, the definition of a cross-sectoral product data model with proven benefits for the circular economy and the development of roadmaps for its introduction.

Wuppertal Institute leads the work on work package 5 "DPP prototypes, roadmaps & recommendations". It is responsible for integrating the CIRPASS results into DPP pilots, creation of a roadmap for the introduction of DPPs and the development of recommendations for policy makers.

Fundey by the EU
