Description

Description

ESDALAB DIH is part of Embedded System Design and Application Laboratory (https://www.esdalab.ece.uop.gr) of Electrical and Computer Engineering Department (https://www.ece.uop.gr) of the University of Peloponnese (https://www.uop.gr) in Greece. As part of a public Greek University, ESDALAB DIH is a non-profit organization.

The main goal of the hub is to provide local and European SMEs & Slightly Bigger Companies support towards their digital transformation and innovation by:

  • Enhancing their Digital Skills
  • Providing know-how on state-of-the-art technologies related to Internet-of-Things and Cyberphysical systems
  • Technology transfer, that will allow them to enter the digital era through novel services and coaching that will strengthen their position, both in the regional and the global market
  • Identifying and supporting cross domain business opportunities

ESDALAB DIH is part of the European Network of DIHs.

Το ESDALAB DIH αποτελεί μέρος του Εργαστηρίου Σχεδιασμού Ενσωματωμένων Συστημάτων και Εφαρμογών (https://www.esdalab.ece.uop.gr) του τμήματος Ηλεκτρολόγων Μηχανικών και Μηχανικών Υπολογιστών (https://www.ece.uop.gr) του Πανεπιστημίου Πελοποννήσου (https://www.uop.gr) στην Ελλάδα. Ως μέρος ενός δημόσιου Ελληνικού Πανεπιστημίου, το ESDALAB DIH είναι μη κερδοσκοπικός οργανισμός.

Ο κύριος στόχος του κόμβου είναι να παρέχει τοπικές και ευρωπαϊκές ΜΜΕ και ελαφρώς μεγαλύτερες εταιρείες υποστήριξη στον ψηφιακό μετασχηματισμό και την καινοτομία τους μέσω:

  • Βελτίωσης των ψηφιακών δεξιοτήτων τους
  • Παροχή τεχνογνωσίας σε τεχνολογίες αιχμής που σχετίζονται με το Internet-of-Things και τα κυβερνοφυσικά συστήματα
  • Μεταφορά τεχνολογίας, που θα τους επιτρέψει να εισέλθουν στην ψηφιακή εποχή μέσω νέων υπηρεσιών και καθοδήγησης που θα ενισχύσουν τη θέση τους, τόσο στην περιφερειακή όσο και στην παγκόσμια αγορά
