PTCentroDiH integrates Digital Innovation Hubs Network for international recognition
On June 25th, the Digital Innovation Hub – PTCentroDiH – was recognized as a Digital Innovation Hub for integration in the National Network and designation for application for access to the European Network, through a specific competition to be opened by the European Commission under the Program Digital Europe.
The primary objective of PTCentroDiH is to contribute to the digital transformation and modernization of industries, government and human resources of the Central Region, couting on with the participation of the following 21 entities in its consortium: Cluster Engineering & Tooling, Cluster Habitat Sustentável, InovCluster, TICE.PT, AEMITEQ, AIBILI, BLC3, CENTIMFE, CTCV, Instituto de Telecomunicações, Instituto Pedro Nunes, Instituto Politécnico da Guarda, Instituto Politécnico de Castelo Branco, Instituto Politécnico de Coimbra, Instituto Politécnico de Leiria, Instituto Politécnico de Tomar, Instituto Politécnico de Viseu, Itecons, Universidade da Beira Interior, Universidade de Aveiro e a Universidade de Coimbra.
The consortium members’ knowledge of the Central Region digital ecosystem to which they belong, allows PTCentroDiH to act as a linking vehicle between existing service providers in the Region and companies that need to acquire digital transformation services in order to become more competitive and increase the competitiveness of the Center Region.
Despite its transversal scope of action, the activity of PTCentroDiH is particularly focused on the transforming RIS3 Centro agendas (sustainable industrial solutions; valorization of endogenous resources; technologies for quality of life and territorial innovation) and on its priority domains (materials , tooling and production technologies; health and well-being; digital and space technologies; culture, tourism and creativity; energy and climate; natural resources and bioeconomy).
It should be noted that the Digital Innovation Poles are collaborative networks that include specific digital competence centers, with the objective of spreading and adopting digital technologies by companies and public administration, contributing to the increase in the competitiveness of their processes, products and services. The recognized Digital Innovation Hubs network will be interconnected with the European Network of Digital Innovation Hubs to be promoted by the European Commission within the scope of the European framework programs for 2021-2027.
