Innovation is one of the great driving forces behind the evolution of our society. The European Commission is aware of this and has therefore designed several programmes to promote the incorporation of new technologies in different areas. Initiatives such as the Digital Innovation Hubs (DIH) offer SMEs a great opportunity to digitise their processes.
These ecosystems are starting to be developed and visualised in the context of European research and, above all, in the development of SMEs and research centres. DIHs are one-stop-shops that help companies become more competitive in terms of their business/production processes, products or services using digital technologies.
In this regard, in Salamanca we have promoted the IoT Digital Innovation Hub to develop pioneering projects with the most advanced technologies. Together, we have joined other DIHs in the region and actors in the Community to promote a European Macro DIH, DIGIS3.
The objective of DIGIS3 is to ensure the smart, secure, sustainable and cohesive digital transformation of SMEs and Public Administration entities in the region, facilitating their access to specialised technical knowledge and experimentation environments, whose central core of knowledge and training is structured around artificial intelligence and supercomputing, bearing in mind that cybersecurity is a necessary layer in any digitisation process. A joint project, led by the Institute for Business Competitiveness (ICE), which will boost Castilla y León on the basis of research and disruptive technological development.
