The project of the European Digital Innovation Hub Ostrava (EDIH Ostrava) is designed to accelerate the digitalisation of companies and public organizations in the region and at the same time to offer an attractive opportunity to use the unique interconnection of digital infrastructure and know-how to interested companies, especially small and medium-sized enterprises in the EU. The technological specialization of EDIH Ostrava is tied to the core facility of High-Performance Computing (HPC), complemented by an experimental industrial testbed. These capacities will be primarily aimed at testing and experimentation of challenging tasks for cases in sectors related to the implementation of the Industry 4.0 concept. This "technological" DNA of EDIH Ostrava is further naturally determined by the industrial character of the Moravian-Silesian Region (MSR), where EDIH Ostrava will mainly operate. The project includes a comprehensive offer of individual services and other activities in line with the required functions of the European Digital Innovation Hub. The aim is to cover a wide range of stakeholders with regard to their level of digital readiness, from entities not yet determined to exploit the potential of digitalisation to entities ready to use the most advanced digital techniques and state-of-the-art research infrastructure, including HPC. Implementation of EDIH Ostrava will provide a significant upgrade the activities that this hub has been gradually developing for several years. An ambition of EDIH Ostrava is to become an inspirational and useful hub within the networks to which EDIH Ostrava is or will be linked. This ambition builds on the existing activities of both members of the consortium and their role within the regional, national, and European innovation ecosystem and is reflected, among others, in the expected share of clients outside the MSR region.
