Ecosystem and Networking

Digital challenges agenda

Elaboration of an agenda of digital challenges, covering sectors and technologies, focused on the needs of SMEs and public administrations, to set up strategic activities of InnDIH. This agenda will allow companies and/or entities to keep up-to-date of the latest trends.

Networks and intermediation

Establishing links between suppliers, clients, business support systems, funding sources, technology institutes, etc. Through the EDIH partner networks. Specific events for SMEs, brokering events and information days in collaboration with the EEN.

Experimentation and demonstration

Trend Observatory

Up-to-date information of market trends, technology scouting and competitive intelligence, assessment of market potential for new services and products after digitalisation.

Support for the use of laboratories and technological infrastructures

Provision of digital technology infrastructures (access and support to HPC, technology platforms) and access to competence centres/labs/infrastructure for experimentation, development of digitalisation of products/services, and production of prototypes or first series for SMEs.

R&D in digital technologies, concept, design, demonstrators / pilots / prototypes / proofs of concept for new products.

Access to competence centres for individual/collaborative R&D projects with the objective of applying digital technology innovation to develop new products/services or improve existing ones. Access to design, technologies and solutions for new digitalisation products/services, from TRL4 to TRL7-8. Validation in the lab and with real customers. Textile sensing technologies, AI for data analysis and image processing, digital twin, VR and hearing, to pre-clinical and clinical testing.


Training in digital technologies

Training in digital technologies is a key tool for keeping up-to-date in today’s world and being able to take full advantage of the opportunities offered by the digital era. In the digital sphere, it is increasingly essential to have knowledge of different technological areas, such as Machine Learning, cybersecurity, artificial intelligence (AI), Big Data, HPC…
