Built on GS1 standards and based on MOs’ research, three workstreams are identified: Awareness & Education: Empower MOs by providing resources for all stakeholders, such as use cases and solutions to achieve interoperability and scalability; New Stakeholder Engagements: Forge connections with marketing departments and solution partners enabling ways of connecting with consumers and understanding what’s possible for AIDC technologies; Standards & Technology: Identify standards and guidance needs for the future as well as assessing emerging technologies. Join us to discover resources available to you now, how the strategy relates to the Digital Link Standard and how it will future proof GS1​
