The workshop is aimed at exploring the opportunities and challenges of the future Digital Product Passport starting from the
use cases of two European research projects, CircThread and Trick, that are texting similar-DPP solutions, respectively, in the appliance and textile industries. The workshop will focus more on the policy and standardization perspective. The objectives of the workshop are:

- to shed the light on what market operators should expect in the next future
- favoring the alignment of EU research projects with future requirements
- bring together the experiences made by companies and research projects
