New European Digital Innovation Hub (EDIH)

No funding application, no waiting, no administrative effort, but instead customised engineering, experimental studies and consulting at the push of a button – this and many other services are offered by the four European Digital Innovation Hubs (EDIH) approved in Austria for small and medium-sized enterprises and the public sector. The goal of the EDIHs in Austria, which are endowed with a total of 16 million euros, is to support and promote the digital transformation of SMEs.

The EDIH “Applied-CPS” is one of them and, under the leadership of VIRTUAL VEHICLE, will offer over 230 customised services and services for access to cyber-physical systems (CPS) for companies from autumn 2022. SMEs in particular will be able to use these services in an uncomplicated and largely fully subsidised manner.

The support services offered focus on essential technological topics in the context of cyber-physical systems:

  • Sensors and embedded systems
  • Smart system integration
  • Digital twins and data utilisation
  • Blockchain and distributed ledger technology
