  9. DIHs online catalogue @S3 Platform  Tools  DIHs  Yellow pages on DIHs– map user interface to identify Hubs, location and contact data – street level map data + exportable list  DIH – fact sheet – in depth data on HUB, almost all data from catalogue  Upload and editing function – function for users to upload data on Hubs or edit existing one (Nov'17)  Overview page provide in-depth information on the state of play for policy makers, in a map, but more focus on regions and regional borders. To illustrate presence of services and capabilities, and to make comparison with other data sets (2018)  Network linkages – illustrate data on relations between HUBs in a map, based on network analyses (2018)  Different types of filters and user interfaces per tool (2018)
  10. The Project: objective and expected results To support the European Commission (DG Connect) in implementing a network of DIHs across 13 new EU Member States. To develop DIHs from the early stage (potential DIH). The goal is to boost local ecosystems less developed and reduce the gap of new Member States in using digital technologies. To select 30 DIHs that can participate in a Programme of Training and Mentoring. The aim will be to support each DIH in the business model definition and the feasibility study. To capitalize on lessons learned from previous and ongoing relevant initiatives. A Final Study Report will define policy recommendations for DIHs in new Member States.
  11. Call for Digital Innovation Hubs in EU13 Member States DIHs interested in the Programme are invited to fill in the Application Form by 22 October. By the end of November, the 30 selected DIHs will be contacted to take part in the Programme. Training and Mentoring activities will take place between January and June 2018. Stakeholders that can lead applications to the Programme are:  Universities, Research and Technology Centres  Incubators and Accelerators  Cluster Organisations and Industry Associations  Public Administrations Candidates can fill the Application Form following the link below:

  1. The Project will select 30 DIHs that can participate in a Programme of Training and Mentoring on business development skills and sustainable activities. The aim will be to support each DIH in the business model definition and the feasibility study (including the identification of funding opportunities). “Smart Factories” capitalise on lessons learned from previous and ongoing relevant initiatives (e.g. H2020’s I4MS project). A Final Study Report will define policy recommendations for the development paths of DIHs in new Member States.”
  2. After a first selection, individual interviews will take place to a group of selected candidates. The Programme is structured into thematic modules and includes both horizontal and more tailored components, based on specific country factors and DIH advancement.
