MIDIH call to distribute €960,000 to the European Industryadmin
MIDIH project, which is part of the I4MS initiative, has already launched its open call for data driven applications and experiments in CPS/IoT, with a submission deadline on June, 29th.
The Manufacturing Industry Digital Innovation Hubs (MIDIH) project has launched its first open call to support, with up to €60,000 per proposal, the development of data driven applications by IT SMEs as technology providers and experiments in CPS/IoT by manufacturing SMEs.
Moreover, it aims at complementing functionalities around MIDIH reference architecture and performing experiments in CPS/IoT based on the components provided by MIDIH architecture. In that sense, the experiments proposed will have to cover smart factory, smart product and smart supply chain.
The expected applicants (this is, ICT SMEs, as technology providers, and manufacturing SMEs as experimenters) must be established in countries eligible for participation in EC H2020. Applications can be submitted until the 29th June 2018 at 5 p.m. (Brussels local time).
The MIDIH ecosystem will offer skills building services to help SMEs / midcaps understand new technologies, the related business models and to take full advantage of them. The project is also developing a common platform of knowledge, methods and collaboration tools that will be shared among the MIDIHs network.
Funded by Horizon 2020, within the Factories of Future Program and the I4MS Initiative, MIDIH aims to support and link national and local initiatives for the digitisation of manufacturing industry to boost investment and collaborations through strategic partnership and networking. In addition, MIDIH will connect operating Digital Innovation Hubs focusing on CPS and IoT into a pan-European network capable of more effectively addressing the needs of European industry, notably SMEs.
