OUR VISION

NIMBLE’s vision is to create a federated interoperable eco-system of medium-sized platforms that provide B2B connectivity for the 99% of European businesses that are SMEs and would profit from Internet platforms.

OUR MISSION

NIMBLE will develop a cloud-based, Industry 4.0, Internet-of-Things-enabled B2B platform on which European manufacturing firms can register, publish machine-readable catalogues for products and services, search for suitable supply chain partners, negotiate contracts and supply logistics, and develop private and secure B2B and M2M information exchange channels to optimise business work flows.

OUR APPROACH

The NIMBLE Platform is available as open source software under an Apache-type, permissive license. NIMBLE’s governance model is a federation of platforms for multi-sided B2B trade, with mandatory interoperation between instances of the platform and with optional, added-value business functions that can be provided by third parties.

HOW TO GET THERE FAST?

NIMBLE has early adopters from day one to develop the initial working platform. Large scale validation involving hundreds of external firms – will happen in year three. To achieve these objectives, we run two dedicated programmes (AMBASSADOR and SEED) that will engage with potential early adopters and platform providers, respectively.
