Subject Re: Approaching the European Commission for some help?
Date Tue, 07 May 2019 13:30:42 GMT
You can count me in. :-) My 10 years old freelancing business ( <>),
and our micro ltd/gmbg ( <>) which is few months
old are, all are deeply interested in moving these things forward.

Making better use of software to integrate hardware and machinery is very interesting perspective
which we will definitely explore - with EU help or without (yes, it will take us 2+ years
to make first PR ;-)).

PLC4X development and integration.

be a LOT of paperwork, but could be worth it if we make a nice proposal and outline a really

be good universitary partners for such a project.
