Experiences from EDIHs in widening regions. Bringing digital transformation closer to SMEs
Digital technologies such as High-Performance Computing, Internet of Things, Big Data, blockchain, robotics and artificial intelligence allow businesses to produce higher-value products and improve production processes .
European companies are not making the most of all the opportunities digital has to offer. This slow uptake of digital technologies poses a risk to the European Unions ability to compete in the global economy, create new jobs and grow.
