World Manufacturing Week 2021

18/10 - 22/10 | In presence + On line Events

EDIH Manufacturing Network

Digital technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, Internet of Things, Big Data, blockchain, robotics, and artificial intelligence allow businesses to produce higher-value products and improve production processes. However, European companies are not making the most of all the opportunities digital has to offer. This slow uptake of digital technologies poses a risk to the European Union’s ability to compete in the global economy, create new jobs and grow.

European Digital Innovation Hubs (EDIHs) will function as one-stop shops, within Digital Europe programme, that help companies dynamically respond to digital challenges and become more competitive. EDIHs offer services such as test before invest, skills and training, support to find investments, innovation ecosystem, and networking.

Don’t miss the chance to meet the main players in Italy and Europe at this special event.
