SAE – DigiFed First Network Expansion Event

17th November 2020 – Virtual Workshop

Co-organized with the SmartAnythingEverywhere (SAE) initiative, the DigiFed first network expansion workshop aims to foster and support the development and consolidation of SMEs across Europe by offering the possibilities to discuss, refine and explore the services provided by Digital Innovation Hubs (DIH). The workshop focuses on exchanging experiences between different Digital Innovation Hubs (DIHs), particularly from the field Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS). The different challenges faced by DIHs are discussed, including the development of operationally and financially sustainable services to support SMEs, the reaching out to strategic stakeholders, and the interaction with local, national and European eco-systems. The targeted outcome is to develop a collaboration roadmap to outline and establish strategies to exploit potential synergies. Moreover the perspective of sustainability is deeply discussed particularly from a European perspective. In addition, the different Innovation Actions under the SAE umbrella focused on CPS have also the opportunity to present their tools and strategy to support SMEs.
