Competence Centers as an Element of Digital Innovation Hubs
Digital Innovation Hub (DIH) is one-stop-shop that help companies to become more competitive with regard to their business/production processes, products or services using digital technologies.
DIH is based upon technology infrastructure (Competence Centre - CC) and provide access to the latest knowledge, expertise and technology to support their customers with piloting, testing and experimenting with digital innovations.
DIH also provide business and financing support to implement these innovations, if needed across the value chain. As proximity is considered crucial, they act as a first regional point of contact, a doorway, and strengthen the innovation ecosystem.
DIH is a regional multi-partner cooperation (including organizations like RTOs, universities, industry associations, chambers of commerce, incubator/accelerators, regional development agencies and even governments) and can also have strong linkages with service providers outside of their region supporting companies with access to their services.
We help people understand the opportunities brought about by digital technologies to overcome the business challenges, facilitate the adoption of those technologies and make the best from them in their application.
We support companies in searching for information on recent available innovations and identifying and engaging innovation partners.
We support companies shape their vision and strategy from a digital perspective and adjust their direction in response to a changing environment.
We strengthen collaborative mechanisms by bringing together professionals from different background and engaging them in a collective effort.
We provide access to knowledge and facilities to deliver excellence in all our services and increase companies’ competitiveness in the global market.
We operate in a network and facilitate the innovation of organizations by connecting different actors of the ecosystem and with external entities.
We grow a community of experienced and committed professionals who build businesses together and support each other in unlocking performance improvements.
We deliver training on digital skills to meet the needs and preferences of companies and enhance their digital transition in the innovation ecosystem.
