This week I had the opportunity to present the IoT Digital Innovation Hub, promoted by our research group at the 4th meeting of the Working Group on Digital Innovation Hubs that took place in Brussels. This conference focused on defining the role played by Digital Innovation Hubs in assisting SMEs to acquire the digital skills they need to make a digital transformation. In addition to presenting our initiative, we have first-hand knowledge of the European Union’s funding plans and programmes and have begun to work on several of the consortia that are being set up.

The Institute for Business Competitiveness (ICE) of the Junta of Castile and León is playing an important role in the development of DIH in our region, it has helped us to launch our own DIH and facilitated our presence at this conference.

The following are the main aspects discussed at the sessions:

– Experience in digital skills training for employees of small and medium enterprises

– The learning contents, the catalogue of training materials and possible ways of sharing

– The next EU budget and future investments in the digital sector and the benefits they will bring to the centres of operation.

We are close to a fruitful end of the H2020 programme and to the exciting beginning of the next research and innovation framework, Horizon Europe.
