Digitization of the manufacturing industry to boost investment and collaborations through strategic partnerships and networking.
The initiative aims to encourage innovation partnerships between solution providers and industrie, as well as bring Europe to the forefront of the Industry 4.0 market by 2023. By supporting companies in their digitalisation travel, Digital Innovation Hubs are crucial ingredient of the Digitising European Industry (DEI) initiative. Digital Innovation Hubs have already proven their effectiveness, the concept finding its limits only in the available technical skills and the difficulty to scale business beyond regional/national borders. MIDIH will connect operating Digital Innovation Hubs focusing on CPS and IoT into a pan-European network capable of more effectively addressing the needs of European industry, notably SMEs and midcaps. Atos is responsible for the exploitation of the project results and will also play a relevant role in the definition of the reference architecture and in the implementation of the MIDIH platform.
