From the seven Finnish candidates for European Digital Innovation Hubs (EDIH), the European Commission has selected four for further development. Hubs are service clusters that support SMEs in their digital renewal, in particular.
The four EDIHs selected from Finland are:
- Robocoast, with Prizztech Oy as coordinator (manufacturing industry)
- HealthHub Finland, with Turku Science Park Oy as coordinator (health)
- Finnish AI Region, with the City of Helsinki as coordinator (digital services, smart cities and health)
- Location Innovation Hub, with National Land Survey of Finland as coordinator (geographic information)
“Finland sent a group of high-quality candidates to the competition. The four EDIHs selected will make their expertise and research data available to SMEs and support the digitalisation of companies. This cooperation will create new opportunities for companies to grow and employ. The aim is to launch the selected projects this autumn,” says Minister of Economic Affairs Mika Lintilä.
