Digital Innovation Hubs Day by SAE
The European initiative Smart Anything Everywhere is organising a one-day event in Stuttgart to bring together European initiatives and DIHs with the ones situated in Baden-Württemberg(south west Germany) and with the ones situated in the German region of Baden-Wuerttemberg and its neighbouring countries (Austria, Switzerland and France).
Chaired by Dr. Max Lemke from the European Commission (Head of Unit for “Technologies and Systems for Digitising Industry in DG CONNECT) this event addresses key-players from Regions, Regional Clusters, Research and Technology Organisations (RTOs) and industry / SMEs to exchange their views on existing and future DIHs. Mrs. Mayte Carracedo, coordinator of I4MS, will be there presenting this Initiative and DIHNET.EU, in a session at 09:55 h.
The aim is to compare the different concepts of theseinitiatives, to share experiences gained by those initiatives as well as by DIHs and also to explore possible collaborations. A special focus will be on interactive discussion sessions addressing questions such as:
- How to support small projects,
- Cascade Funding – an instrument fitting the needs of SMEs,
- Experiences and lessons learnt (by DIHs and SMEs),
- Re-use of technological building blocks in new projects,
- How to create a leverage effect of public funding,
- Collaboration of initiatives and hubs on regional, national and EU levels.
