The European Textile, Clothing and Footwear industries have a very large number of SMEs and complex supply chains with a combined turnover of over 180 billions of euros and employ about 3 million people. These industries have been identified as amongst the lowest adopters of ICT systems.
The new CEN Workshop eBIZ aims at boosting the use of eBusiness and improving the interoperability of B2B data exchange through the supply chain in the fashion industry, textile, clothing and footwear. The Workshop is proposed by Euratex, ENEA and partners of the eBIZ-TCF project.
eBIZ kick-off meeting was held in Brussels on 29 March 2012:
