The Digital Innovation Hub Emilia-Romagna Project organizes and builds a coordination network for digital innovation, identifying shared spaces and laboratories in order to support the development of digital innovation in the Emilia-Romagna Region.

This intervention model aims to innovate the Regional system with an user-driven approach involving the final users for what concerns co-designing and validation, the territory for what concerns the relationships between institutional, scientific, industrial, economic and social parts, and the market for the exchange of ideas, competences and technologies.

In the context of DIHER, the activities linked by the funded project ER2DIGIT and integrated with DIHER are also being developed. 
ER2DIGIT is a distributed location of digital innovation regarding the development of a data society and economy through advanced digital technologies that the “Digital Europe” program has found in HPC, IA, Cybersecurity, but also in leading sectors such as “Internet of Things” (IoT).
ER2DIGIT will act as an orchestrator of a set of services, advice and skills at a territorial level made available by the regional ecosystem of innovation and digital.
