Leti, a research institute of CEA Tech, announced a new European Horizon 2020 project to develop new cross-border services among Europe’s digital innovation hubs (DIH).
Members of the electronics-industry value chain and universities from 12 European research institutes, the DigiFed project will focus on boosting the adoption of advanced digital technologies, or cyber-physical systems (CPS). DigiFed will implement a business plan for the sustainability of the federation of hubs designated by the European Commission.
The project will provide support mechanisms for both individual companies and groups of SMEs to foster the introduction of digital technologies in their product-and-service offerings.
Created in 2016, the DIH are ecosystems of large industrial companies, SMEs, startups, researchers, accelerators, and investors whose aim is to create the best conditions for long-term business success for all involved.
DigiFed will engage at least 200 European SMEs and midcaps in its innovation program. At least 80 of these will receive funding support and benefits from one of DigiFed’s innovation pathways and half of these will be businesses beginning their digital transformation.
DigiFed, which leverages IRT Nanoelec and CEA-Leti’s expertise in hardware security and CPS, was launched in January 2020.
