S3HubsinCE- Unleashing the potential of transnational cooperation, through Digital Innovation Hubs, to promote RIS3 implementation
Europe has a potential to specialise in digital solutions on a global scale, however, everyone agrees that it is not fully exploited. The main barrier is the fragmentation of markets, and the lack of uniform regulations and procedures. A new EU initiative supporting the digitalisation of industry: Digital Innovation Hubs is there to remedy. The DIH centers are hubs of complex services, where businesses, and especially SMEs and start-ups, can improve their competences connected to streamlining production processes, products, and services by implementing digital technologies.
The goal of S3HubsinCE project is to build competences of regional DIHs in Central and Eastern Europe by exchanging experience and good practices between project partners. The competences are built in the following technology areas: data analytics, machine vision, factory and process automation, IIoT, advanced and smart materials.
The 10 project partners, coming from Austria, Croatia, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Poland, Slovenia, and Hungary, will jointly develop a network of Central European “RIS3 Champions”, which will initiate a new generation of innovation networks.
