DIH DATAlife is a non-profit association founded in December 2019 that was born with the vision of turning Galicia into a reference Bioregion in Europe through the connection, coordination, and creation of synergies between the agents of the innovation ecosystem and the productive sectors of the region. After almost three years of work, the European Commission selected DIH DATAlife as a European digital innovation hub, granting it a seal of excellence and financing its project "EDIH DATAlife project" of almost 5,5 million euros, in which a large part of its associates accompanies the association.
The project begins its journey on January 1, 2023. It focuses on implementing disruptive technologies in validation and demonstration phases with great potential to increase the competitiveness of Galician companies and public administration, but little widespread at present. It is, therefore, necessary to support companies - especially SMEs - to facilitate their knowledge and adoption. The services will be collected in a catalogue and free for SMEs. These will include advice for implementing new technologies and proofs of the concept of Artificial Intelligence (AI), High-Performance Computing (HPC), or Internet of Things (IoT). The project also continuously maps commercially available digital solutions and providers to complement the technology offers.
The EDIH-DATAlife project is formed by a consortium of 15 members of the Galician innovation ecosystem. It has research, scientific and technological centres (8 partners), sectoral clusters (5 partners), a knowledge transfer centre, two universities and a driving company. They represent all agents of demand, supply, and technology transfer. List of partners:
