Description

The European way for the Digital decade is to create a network of European digital innovation hubs to support the European SMEs and administration in the regions to accelerate their digital transformation. In the context of the Digital Europe Programme, this project represents creation and development of an EDIH to offer services to the SMEs and administration in the North Central Region of Bulgaria to reach higher digital maturity level and strengthen the resilience of the regional industry by boosting its digitalisation. The services are planned to be of twin type: both digital and green. The Hub activities and services are focused on Artificial intelligence in the typical smart specialisation of the region Mechatronics and Informatics and ICT, but target also the most valuable capital – skilling, re- and up-skilling of the human resources. The lack of knowledge in the Hub to support the SMEs in the vast digitalisation field will be mitigated and overcome via the access to the broad network of EDIHs.
