Futures of Innovation Technologies European Digital Innovation Hub (FIT EDIH) in the Centru Region, in Romania (NUTS2-RO12) is a coordinated group of 12 organizations, with complementary expertise, resulting from the merger of two EDIH consortia based in the region, that have successfully passed the national selection stage, namely FIT EDIH (ICE, UMFST, ASIMCOV, AICAR, BMA, CNIPMMR, ALT BV) and Leveraging Administration and Business for a Smart Community – DIH-LAB4COM (ULBS, ROPARDO, AIDA, SFR and NTT (AE)).

FIT EDIH’s primary specializations are (1) Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Big-Data based systems and (2) Key Enabling Technologies (KET), aiming to increase the digital maturity level of 131 SMEs and Public Service Organizations (PSOs) in 3 main application domains, correlated with the  Centru region’s 2021-2027 RIS3 Smart Specialization Strategy:

  1. Smart City,
  2. Manufacturing,
  3. eHealth.

In order to address the needs of Centru Region’s SMEs and Public Service Organizations (PSOs), who currently have a basic level of digitalization at best, while also setting up the premises for advanced digital transformation of their organization, FIT EDIH has created 3 Curriculum Tracks for each of the 3 Application Domains it targets, focusing on promoting both basic and advanced technologies and curating the themes and activities of its 4 core services (WP1 Innovation Ecosystem, WP2 Test Before Invest, WP3 Skills and WP4 Access to Finance). FIT EDIH’s flexible yet ambitious approach goes further – to offering SMEs and PSOs 3 different client journeys, FIT EDIH Awareness Level, Basic Level and Advanced Digital Transformation.
