EDIH Title

SharD-HUB – Sardinia Digital Innovation Hub


SharD-HUB, the EDIH to be set up in Sardinia, has been conceived to become a one-stop-shop to ensure access to digitalization services, top-level research infrastructures and a wide set of training and skills development and/or networking activities intended for both enterprises (especially MSMEs and SMEs) and Public Sector Organisations, addressing the three main technological areas envisaged by the call – High Performance Computing, Cybersecurity and Artificial Intelligence – for actively contributing to foster their digital transition, according to the Regional Smart Specialization Strategy. To achieve this goal a strong consortium comprising research centres, trade associations, incubators and top-player industries has been mobilised so as to offer to the hub’s clients the needed infrastructure and expertise to increase their digital and market maturity and to boost up the networking growth at national and international level along all the six areas identified by the Regional Smart Specialization Strategy (RIS3), namely, 1) ICT, 2) Tourism, culture and environment, 3) Smart networks for efficient energy management, 4) Agroindustry, 5) Biomedicine and 6) Aerospace): more specifically SharD-HUB will offer a very wide range of services, namely: A) Test before invest activities (through the mobilisation of 38 public and private laboratories); B) Support to find Investments; C) Innovation Ecosystems and Networking; D) Training and skills Development activities. SharD-HUB will thus be the turnkey for boosting the digital transformation of the Sardinian ecosystem and for increasing the economic competitiveness of the region at a European level. This wide variety of services has been designed to serve the ultimate goal to reduce the competitive disparity with other areas and be a “virtual” bridge from Sardinia to Europe.
