Accelerating digital green transformation and innovation uptake across the economy and society is at the forefront of Europe’s growth agenda. Digital Innovation Hubs (DIHs) are one of the pillars to uphold this process and will help to consider the geographical (regional) dimension and thematic context to boost SME growth, citizen centered governance, jobs and investment. The COVID19 crisis has demonstrated the absolute necessity of having strong European digital ecosystems as key enablers to avoid disruption in value-chains. However, digitalization and digital transformation can only be efficient if digital ecosystems are strongly interlinked with their applied market sectors. Due to inertia and/or legacy, the manufacturing, public administration and health sectors are among the most challenging ones. The project Digital Innovation Hub for Society for a Smarter, Safer and more Sustainable Society comes to upscale the services that DIH4Society can deliver in the North-West Region of Romania and aims at fully integrating our initiative into the European network of hubs. The project focuses on two technological pillars, cybersecurity and smart robotics, while also building advanced digital competencies for digitalization and green digital transformation. Upon finalization, the project will have a profound, transformative impact on a regional level through the digital progression of 70 key stakeholders, public administration and health providers, and more than 400 SMEs from smart specialization sectors. DIH4Society will provide a European solution to a European challenge and will bring or embed digitalization in the practices of many organizations. In the long run the project will inspire a new generation of early adopters of technologies, new entrepreneurial initiatives of visionary companies and organizations that use cutting edge technologies at the core of their business models and will build the foundation for a citizen centered public service delivery.
