Description

The DIH4ClimateNeutrality’s mission is to accelerate the transition of cities to smart, resilient and carbon neutral urban spaces, through the use of big data and digital technologies, to improve sustainability and citizens’ quality of life. The Hub aims to become a national and European reference on digital transformation at the service of climate action. The DIH will provide access to digital competences, infrastructures and services to the following target groups, answering to their digitalization needs: local governments, companies who develop smart and sustainable city solutions, namely SMEs, mid-caps and start-ups, and communities (mainly students). The DIH4CN will be centred on urban science for sustainability, using digital skills and technologies to enhance the transition towards carbon neutrality. The technological coverage of the hub are Internet-of-Things/Cyber-physical Systems, Artificial Intelligence and Data Analytics. Other relevant digital technologies, such as data confidentiality, cybersecurity and High-Performance Computing will be assessed throughout the DIH’s network of partners, for ex. Minho Advanced Computing Centre, and the European network of DIH. DIH4CN has a national scope, providing services for all the Portuguese regions, but it also acts as an access point to the European Network of Digital Innovation Hubs, helping local companies and the public sector to get support from other EIDHs, and vice-versa. In this context, networking and innovation ecosystem, test-before-invest, training and skills development, and innovation support and business development are the main services to be provided by the DIH4CN, to enhance the green and digital transformation of companies and the public sector, as well as and the introduction of low-carbon digital-based innovations in the market. In the context of the EDIH network, the Hub will collaborate with the Digital Transformation Accelerator, and EDIH sub-networks and innovation corridors.
