ABOUT THE EUROPEAN DIGITAL INNOVATION HUBS

 

In the context of the new Multiannual Financial Framework 2021-2027, the European Commission has proposed a new funding program, dedicated exclusively to supporting the digital transformation of the European economy and society. The Digital Europe program aims to improve the EU's international competitiveness through significant investments in the development of the Union's strategic capabilities, supporting the development of key areas such as artificial intelligence, high-performance computing (HPC), cyber security, advanced digital skills, digitalization of public administration and interoperability.

The role of European Digital Innovation Hubs (eDIH) is to ensure that innovative digital solutions, based on new technologies, are integrated into the day-to-day business of companies and public administrations. Thus, digital innovation centers offer the possibility to experiment and test these technologies, in order to implement them according to the specific needs of the field of activity of each company or public institution.

European Digital Innovation Hubs (eDIH) provide access to technical expertise and experimentation so that those interested can "test before investing". It also provides innovation services, funding consulting, training and skills development for a successful digital transformation.

Green Digital Innovation Hub
Bucharest - Ilfov

The digital innovation hub in the Bucharest-Ilfov region, Green eDIH, supports the development of the economy in the region through green technologies. Green eDIH welcomes local entities, Associations, Clusters, Employer Structures, University Institutions, Research and / or Statistical Institutes, Private Companies, be they SMEs or Large Companies, local and central authorities and any entity that can add value to further alert and efficient development, facilitating the access to all the resources needed to successfully implement the digital transformation.

One of the main objectives of Green eDIH is to support and accelerate innovation through green digital technologies. In this context, Green eDIH has created and will constantly develop 5 Digital Platforms that will cover digitally and in full all the main functions of an eDIH:

  • The Digital Platform: GreenTech Academy
  • The Digital Platform: GreenTech Network
  • The Digital Platform: GreenTech Starter
  • The Program: GreenTech Policy
  • The Program: GreenTech Projects

Green eDIH focuses, in particular, on supporting partners in maximizing their impact on the markets and areas in which they operate. By connecting all stakeholders in various fields, Green eDIH facilitates partners to develop innovative digital solutions that fully meet the needs of the environment in which they operate, both locally, regionally, nationally and in Europe.

MISSION, VALUES AND PRINCIPLES
GREEN eDIH

Green eDIH's mission is to provide a digital innovation ecosystem, based on green (eco-friendly) technologies, for the private economy and public administration in the Bucharest-Ilfov region. Green eDIH's vision is based on the ambition to transform the way actors involved in the public and private environment operate, by supporting them in the process of adopting green technologies (AI, ITS, HPC, Smart City, Digitization, Cyber Security, Matchmaking , Big Data, Aeronautical Research, High Tech Legal), in order to align with European standards in terms of sustainable development.

The values that mark the way in which Green eDIH operates are:

  • „Ideal Governance” - Green eDIH has developed the most modern and efficient Statute - Virtual Joint Venture and Governance Model of a DIH that we consider to be unique and innovative, adapted to the century of Information and Digitization, using previous operating experience of a Cluster established and developed in the last 7 years and the guidelines of the eDIHelp program. Moreover, we have carefully followed the objectives and functions outlined by the European Commission - general recommendations that allow you to innovate the collaboration.
  • „Organic Self Sustainable” - Green eDIH has adopted a Budget and Sustainability model for the next 7 years that was inspired by the DIHelp model. This model has 3 main components: Private Financing, Volunteering and European Financing / Investment Funds / Global Partners that blend organically and efficiently, which will allow an exponential and self-sustaining organic growth, according to European recommendations, the perfect mix between self-financing and access to various external financing.
  • „Virtually Perfect” - Green eDIH aims to create a 100% Digital Hub adapted to current global conditions, such as the COVID-19 pandemic, which has taught us that if you are not in the virtual environment, you do not exist, so the first step In Digitization it is the very power of example.
  • „Innovative Partners” - Green eDIH focuses on achieving the largest and strongest global partnerships, attracting scientists and top specialists, so that together we can develop the most prolific digital, virtual, efficient and Goals-Programs-Results-oriented ecosystem, conceived and developed as a living organism. This ecosystem is envisioned in a digital matrix form whose cells function organically and independently in the form of "Boards", "Commissions" and "Programs", each intelligent specialization being treated separately and, at the same time, aligned with the general objectives and integrated in an Innovative Digital Ecosystem of the future that works symbiotically and organically.
  • „Bureaucracy Less” - Green eDIH was designed to become the Digital Symbiotic Ecosystem of the future that will allow the digital interconnection of all its members and partners. We are focused on Real, One-off and Tangible Objectives, which converge naturally and grow organically, based on the only valid millennial direction - Human Centric and eCitizen Centric - that converges naturally to eGovernment.
  • „Green Technology” - Green eDIH has chosen to comply with the European Green Pact signed in 2019 and to align and lead the trend that will turn the use of any technology in a green direction, directly or indirectly, so that together we achieve climate neutrality across EU until 2050.

Green eDIH was created according to the simplest PRINCIPLES. We call them "Common Sense":

  • Green Technology is not a goal, it is a Standard that must be implemented.
  • INDUSTRY-LEADING INNOVATION is not an Objective, it is the intrinsic essence that was the basis of the entire digital construction. We do not promote innovation, we create it at a high-standard level.
  • TRANSPARENCY in COLLABORATION is the key to any association, but the essence is the continuous and constant flow of informational and decision-making visibility. That is, we will replace the classic Reporting of Results with a level of Proactive Digital Prediction, the "Push Notification" type.
  • In us, we TRUST – each piece of the Digital Green eDIH Puzzle is a unique and equivalent valuable entity that blends organically and fluidly into the digital ecosystem.

According to the reccomendations of European Comission,
Green eDIH is based on 4 main functions:

Green eDIH represents a virtual ecosystem one-stop-shop for organizations that proposes to become more competitive and more adapted to modern economics, through the processes, the products or the services that are using digital technologies.

The 4 base functions of a DIH represents the engine that starts the whole activity of such a colaborative structure, which offers access to new knowledge, expertise and state-of-the-art technology for supporting the beneficiaries with the realization, the testing and the experimentation of digital inovations.

Green eDIH implements cele 4 Base Functions
in a unique and innovative way

For optimal management of basic functions, Green eDIH has created 5 Digital Programs. They are the engine that drives the entire Green eDIH business and they are in a continuous process of evolution.

The 5 Digital Platforms aim to provide Green eDIH members with support for innovative businesses, through access to financing and know-how on the entire value chain.
As proximity is considered crucial, Green eDIH strengthens regional cooperation with many partners, including organizations such as universities, professional associations, chambers of trade, incubators / accelerators, regional development agencies and local public authorities and central ones, and may also have strong links with service providers from outside Bucharest-Ilfov region, thus covering 360° of innovation ecosystem.

Green eDIH aims to create an effective collaboration between institutions, government agencies, private companies, educational institutions, NGOs, communities and micro-communities that understand the crucial importance of partnerships and specific activities regarding the digitalization through green technologies.

MAIN SUPORT FUNCTIONS

Green eDIH aims to promote and support the efforts of all social actors towards the sustainable development of society with the help of green technologies and to facilitate the continuous development of partnership networks at local, regional, national and international level.

  • ECOSYSTEM
    FOR
    INNOVATION

    Innovation is defined by the process of transforming an idea into a product or service that creates value for the beneficiary.

    To be called an innovation, an idea must be able to be reproduced at an efficient economical cost and must satisfy a specific need. Innovation involves the deliberate involvement of information, imagination and it includes all the processes by which new ideas are generated and transformed into useful products. In business, innovation often results when ideas are applied by the company to further meet the needs and expectations of its customers. Innovating a product, service or process requires time, access to technology, knowledge, development of knowledge and skills, investment.

  • PROFESSIONAL
    TRAINING AND DEVELOPMENT

    According to Green eDIH, the development of knowledge and skills is a process whose success depends, in principle, on the correct identification of needs, the correct assessment of the existing situation and the fair monitoring of progress after the completion of training courses. In order to support all stakeholders, partners, members, companies, universities, local and central authorities, Green eDIH has set up GreenTech Academy, which covers over 50 technologies and fields.

  • TEST
    BEFORE
    INVESTING

    The main reason why many products and services fail is that the investor does not have the opportunity to test before investing. Green eDIH offers access to technical expertise and experimentation, so that all those interested can "test before investing".

  • FINANCING & INVESTOR
    IDENTIFICATION

    The impact of innovation is visible in many aspects of everyday life, but what ensures that innovative ideas can become a reality? Financing. Financing is the resource that fuels any business. Green eDIH advises on funding and gives its partners and stakeholders access to real funding opportunities.

“Digital transformation is more about people than technology, so any digital transformation should begin with eCitizen and naturally scale to eGovernment, finally delivering success through an ecosystem of mutual collaboration. We live in a multi-channel network of things. We believe High Specialisations are mandatory in all areas of our Digital Future, delivered through better Digital Skills”
