OPEN DEI supports digital platforms projects and stakeholders to connect to key European initiatives and the networks of Digital Innovation Hubs

OPEN DEI aims at building an innovation ecosystem across the Manufacturing, Agriculture, Energy and Healthcare domains to encourage synergies, promote cross fertilization and foster technological development. Furthermore, it aims to facilitate the sharing of ideas and best practices among them and to maximize / multiply the impact of their Large Scale Pilots (LSPs). OPEN DEI is aligned with the aims and objectives of Digitising European Industry initiative in the contexts of Regulatory Framework, Partnership and Platform, Skills and Jobs and Digital Innovation Hubs (DIHs).

The OPEN DEI beneficiary Innovalia has fostered and supported the creation and development of Digital Innovation Hubs in the Manufacturing sectorand has played a central role in the mentoring and coaching of multi-sectorial networks of DIH in Europe (AI DIH Network initiative in collaboration with PwC and CARSA).. The OPEN DEI beneficiary IDSA is building an international network of HUBs, which act as facilitators in the development of ecosystems that endorse and embrace data sovereignty and the development of trusted industrial data spaces.

During the 2nd OPEN DEI webinar the project presented an overview of European activities about DIHs and ecosystem building activities in the different OPEN DEI sectors (Manufacturing, Energy, Healthcare and Agri-food) and technologies (AI, Cybersecurity, Industrial IOT, Cloud, HPC & Robotics). Moreover, it explored how DIHs can become important partners for OPEN DEI Digital Platforms projects for a leaner global uptake and transfer of their digital solutions towards SMEs and a deep and structured Digital Transformation of all EU industries. This session also showed the benefits that the connection and active participation of digital platforms innovation actions  in DIH ecosystems can bring, by supporting business growth, shaping better digital products and more effective industrial processes in the four domains.
