The DIH 4 GLOBAL AUTOMOTIVE proposes to assume as the Digital Innovation Hub of the Automotive Sector in Portugal, arising from the aggregation of a set of entities and companies, coordinated by MOBINOV, with the objective of providing support services to SME to support the (necessary) digital transformation of the value chain, both at the product and process level, positioning existing companies and start-ups in the future of mobility. Its main objective is to work at the level of the development of innovative concepts and products for the Car of the Future, supporting the SMEs in the automotive sector in the development of new components for this car and, mainly, to support the necessary changes to the production processes associated with Industry 4.0 and the concept of Factory of the Future. It also intends to act as an access point to the European network of EDIHs, helping local companies and/or public actors to get support from other EDIHs in case the needed competences fall outside their competence, ensuring that every stakeholder gets the needed support wherever it is available in Europe and provide services to SME from other countries presented by other EDIHs that need their expertise. The diagnoses made with SMEs, point to the importance that digital technologies will be used increasingly in all car systems, so DIH resources will also be able to be mobilized in a transversal way, so that services can be provided with maximum flexibility and versatility. The DIH will act as an intermediary of innovation in the automotive industry and its value chain, seeking to provide through the provision of advanced digital services and technologies aid and support to companies in their digital transformation processes, providing a set of services such as testing before investing, skills development and training, support in the search for investment funding, partnerships and networking for the innovation ecosystem.
