InnDIH: European Digital Innovation Hubs
The aim of the project is to set up a digital innovation hub to boost the economy of the Valencian Region by bringing digital technologies closer to companies and the Public Administration. InnDIH is the integrated proposal of the Valencian Region for the European network of EDIHs (European Digital Innovation Hubs).
The digital transformation of the Valencian Region is marked by several challenges, including access to digital skills and infrastructures, the need for greater promotion of digitalisation and technology-based companies by the traditional financial sector and the qualification and training of professionals.
access to digital skills and infrastructures, the need for greater promotion of digitalisation and technology-based companies by the traditional financial sector, and the qualification and training of professionals. Equally important are the drive for networking and concerns about artificial intelligence with regard to privacy, protection of sensitive data and regulatory acceptance to ensure data reliability and security.
To overcome these challenges, InnDIH’s mission is to ensure the digitisation of the ecosystem of SMEs and the public sector in the Valencian Region through the incorporation of Artificial Intelligence, generating a digital and technologically advanced production system.
Summary and objectives
With a centralised commitment to public-private collaboration, InnDIH seeks to contribute to the digitisation of SMEs and public administration and to boost the economic development of the Valencian Region.
Specifically, InnDIH promotes the development and implementation of digital technologies in the priority areas of Health and Quality of Life and Advanced Manufacturing, as well as any other area that requires digital technologies.
To this end, through its consortium, it will provide a wide range of digital solutions and services that are mainly based on Artificial Intelligence (AI), as well as other technologies such as HPC, Cybersecurity, Big Data and Robotics, with a high sectoral transversality.
Starting with a Digital Maturity Assessment (DMA), users will get a roadmap for improvement and access to technology assessment services, infrastructures or R&D; business development, networking or tailor-made training courses. The DMA will be evaluated annually to assess new needs and monitor the evolution of digitalisation.
InnDIH’s members are 32 beneficiaries and affiliated entities, including five universities, 11 technology institutes, a national research centre, a network of technology institutes, a network of universities, three health research institutes, an alliance of innovative technologies and a business accelerator. In addition, the business sector is represented by a business confederation, a federation, four chambers of commerce and two associations.
