As digital transformation becomes pervasive across Industry 4.0 and data-driven AI-powered applications promise to unlock new competitive advantages and business models in the sector, it is of strategic importance that European industry adopts AI at the largest possible scale. Trying to reach increasing levels of manufacturing autonomy demands that advanced experimentation strategies and infrastructures become available. TEFs are key instruments that could leverage such experimental set up to accelerate the adoption of advanced manufacturing assets and Industrial AI digital platforms. The open dialogue aims at bring together emerging European efforts in the development of European networks of TEF for manufacturing and set a debate on design principles for such networks and their role in collaboration with the network of (E)DIHs to address not only large industry demands but also SME ones.
