Pilots and their participants work every day to develop collaboration projects to further strengthen the value chain of their choice. In order to guide them to existing and upcoming implementation support, Vanguard Initiative launched earlier polls to EDIHs situated in VI regions. which you can still contribute :
- EDIH : European Digital Innovation Hubs are one-stop-shops to help your SMEs on their route towards more digitalisation. EDIHs have specialisations in specific technology fields and certain application domains. Through the networking between the total 240 EDIHs that will soon be financed by the EC, each SME will have access to services that correspond to its needs: if not in the own region, then there will be guidance to find that support in another region in the EU.
- Pilots and their participants work every day to develop collaboration projects to further strengthen the value chain of their choice. In order to guide them to existing and upcoming implementation support, Vanguard Initiative launched earlier a polls to EDIHs situated in VI regions and invited them to indicate their specialisations.
- EDIH specialisations can include the topics covered by VI’s Pilot Projects. Highlighting specialisations can help the Pilots find out which (candidate) EDIHs are tackling their field of work. Highlighting your EDIH’s specialisations can also help other EDIHs to find you as a preferred collaboration partner by doing the same exercise.
This Pilot inside VI was now extended and enlarged. During a webinar on June 29th, hosted by Vanguard Initiative, BOWI and DIHNET and attended by +400 participants, the template to use when highlighting specialisations – the so called “heatmap” – was explained in detail and a working environment was offered to all EDIHs within and outside VI regions to share their heatmaps and find each other on complementary specialisations. Check out this web page for all information (recording of the session, presentations, heatmap template, space to upload and download heatmaps).
