DIH-WORLD Coming soon!
DIH-World aims to accelerate the uptake of advanced digital technologies by European manufacturing SMEs in all sectors by supporting them in building sustainable competitive advantages and reaching global markets. DIH-World strengthens the capacities of regional DIHs, particularly in underrepresented regions across Europe.
As intermediaries of successful local SME digital transformation, DIH-World aims at providing DIHs, access to harmonised tools, well proven technologies, effective methodologies, sound knowledge, smart investment sources, rich training assets and overall a vibrant innovation environment.
The final aim is to accelerate the matureness of DIHs and the development of their collaboration capabilities, and avoid a DIH divide due to lack of access to technologies, skills, networks, investment and infrastructures with special emphasis in underrepresented regions; so they can capitalise and leverage on the European DIHs Networks their resources and facilities for the benefit of their local SMEs.
DIH-World will organise two open calls to select and support 45 SME-driven experiments. DIH-World aims at supporting SMEs from industries which traditionally have lagged behind on various aspects of digitalization, and will target SMEs and DIHs from regions which historically have experienced low DIH presence and digitalization rates. The first Open Call will be announced at the beginning of 2021. Please, visit this website to be up to date!
