Manufacturing Industry Digital Innovation Hubs
The MIDIH (Manufacturing Industry Digital Innovation Hubs) project has a threefold objective:
- to define, harmonise and coordinate DIHs and CCs added value services for SMEs in the domain of CPS and IoT. Different typologies of DIHs and CCs will share the same methodology, the same IT platform and the same business and revenue models, although with very different aims and structure (technology-driven, innovation-driven, regional, national, pan-EU).
- to develop a blended data-driven reference architecture for connected factories, defining a set of reference implementations per CPS/IOT industrial domain. Such open source reference implementations will encompass components coming from FIWARE for INDUSTRY, openIOT, Industrial Data Space and Arrowhead / Productive 4.0 initiatives and focusing on critical technical aspects such as wireless and wired industrial networks (e.g. 5G), edge computing and cloud manufacturing, cyber security and confidentiality, Industrial IoT and Industrial Analytics.
- to conduct experiments in realistic industrial settings, some of them provided by leading edge Manufacturing Industries, some others by Didactic Learning Factories, some more coming from two sessions of Open Calls, especially devoted to SMEs, start-ups and web entrepreneurs
SMEs will be supported by the involved DIHs and CCs during the project, in particular the ones selected in the Open Calls through access to technology, training, finance, market and competencies.
