The ATTRACT consortium joins the European Digital Innovation Hubs network with the DIH in Artificial Intelligence and High-Performance Computing

The Digital Innovation Hub in Artificial Intelligence and High-Performance Computing (ATTRACT-DIH) consortium with 23 Portuguese R&D institutions, associations and companies, including the Research Centre in Digitalization and Intelligent Robotics (CeDRI) of Instituto Politécnico de Bragança, had been selected to join the European Digital Innovation Hubs network. This network will function as one-stop shops that help companies dynamically respond to the digital challenges and become more competitive. The network is set up by the European framework programs for 2021-2027 of the European Commission for R&D and Innovation (Horizon 2020 and Digital Europe).

ATTRACT-DIH will support technology-based SMEs in the design, development, validation and Internationalisation of new products and services that can strongly benefit from AI or HPC, aiming at significant sales volumes at international level. Complementary, the hub will foster and assist potentially adopters of AI or HPC based solutions with dissemination and support initiatives, including the maturity assessment and definition of adoption roadmaps, aiming at leapfrog productivity gains. To all recipients, ATTRACT-DIH will deliver specialized training services, fundraising support and will promote an active innovation ecosystem, including the collaboration with other DIHs at national and European level.
