3. The Italian-DIH network and the national industry strategy 4.0
The Italian-DIH network is part of the national context where the Italian Government and Confindustria are strongly committed to boosting the competitiveness of Italian manufacturing companies, which depends on their ability to deliver highly innovative products, where innovation often comes from the progress made through the adoption of ICT solutions.
The solution to this need can be provided by the Digital Innovation Hub, which aims to promote state-of-the-art technologies and to disseminate ICT-based research projects.
The European network in which the Italian-DIH network interacts can help you identify all Industry 4.0 solutions (eg robotic, cloud-based simulation services and high performance computing systems, add-on manufacturing, laser-based applications, intelligent sensor-based devices).
