How Digital Innovation Hubs can help to boost your business in COVID-19 times



DIHs have supported SMEs during COVID-19, and we will present you the cases of three DIHs, followed by a panel discussion:

Transilvania IT identifies collaborative projects that benefit all stakeholders (clusters, companies, local public authorities, universities) in the IT, agriculture, energy efficiency, furniture, and creative industries sectors.

IAM 3D HUB aims to accelerate the adoption of additive manufacturing (AM) and 3D printing, one of most useful tools in the fight of COVID-19.

BDIH supports SMEs in their dual sustainable and digital industrial transition. They will present an initiative for the digital transformation of self-employed and micro-SMEs designed to get adapted to the COVID-19 circumstances, as well as the Deep Dives planned for the “new normal”.
