Digital Innovation Hubs (DIHs) are part of the European Union's digitalization strategy and their main objective is to help companies to respond dynamically to digital challenges and become more competitive. These innovation centres provide advice, training and contribute to the development of the skills required to achieve digital transformation in the company.
The DISRUPTIVE project was created under this premise, which seeks to boost Digital Innovation Hubs within the PocTep region for the promotion of disruptive and next-generation ICTs by means of cooperation in the cross-border region.
DISRUPTIVE is a Spain - Portugal cross-border cooperation project that aims to improve research and innovation (R&I) infrastructures and the capacity to develop excellence in R&I, and the promotion of centres of competence, especially those of European interest.
What are the objectives of the DISRUPTIVE project?
- To improve the cross-border cooperation area's scientific excellence in areas of research that are internationally competitive.
- To coordinate the transformation of the cross-border region as a whole, promoting research activity, the productive intensity of the reference centres and the number of specialized researchers;
- Generate a pull effect that will have a significant impact on the development and competitiveness of the cooperation area.
Thanks to the experience, technical and methodological expertise of the different partners involved in the project, important scientific and professional synergies have been achieved that are undoubtedly helping to boost research and the digital transformation in the two regions.
Project partners: Institute for Business Competitiveness, Bragança Polytechnic Institute (IPB), produtech, isep.ipp, University of Valladolid, Incibe, Cartif, University of Salamanca and the BISITE Research Group.
