Description

CETMA-DIHSME is the  EDIH promoted and managed by CETMA, a non-profit RTO with 30 years of experience in innovation services to SMEs in Southern Italy. In order to strengthen assistance to SMEs with skills, expertise and tools according to a ‘one stop shop’ logic, CETMA involved 13 other partners in the Hub’s service offering.

Its activities  are strongly focused on the local socio-economic reality (Puglia and Basilicata) where the partners are strongly rooted.

CETMA-DIHSME vision is  that AI, HPC and CS technologies can bring significant benefits to the development of the Territory, but this requires that anything local actors are involved such as PA and SMEs, even the smallest and even those operating in more traditional sectors.

Based on the experience of CETMA and analysis of innovation experts, CETMA-DIHSME starts from the consideration that to foster innovation in small businesses, in addition to "problem solving" services (technology consulting, research, engineering, etc.), it is necessary to support SMEs with "problem setting" services (strategic analysis, business planning, fundraising, supply chain relations, etc.).

For this reason, the EDIH CETMA-DIHSME provides an integrated offering of business and strategy-setting services and technological services.

We offer services for:  awareness building; assistance for strategic setting;  testing and development, such as feasibility studies, simulations, development of artificial intelligence applications, testing and optimization of prototypes;   testing and development in operating environments.

Attention is also dedicated to fundraising support and customised training

CETMA-DIHSME aims to trigger synergies with the relevant opportunities offered by regional, national, and European innovation policies and funding and other innovation operators affecting the same territory. It also wants to exploit the great opportunities of the creation of a structured network of EDIH to promote cohesion between European territories to take advantage of social, economic, and environmental benefits.
