Snapshots of the European DIH landscape Snapshots of the European DIH landscape

In this section you can find an extensive overview of the DIHs situation per country. In specific, for each EU Member States (28) and 10 Non-EU countries (grouped in 1), a country sheet has been prepared presenting the following information:

  • National and regional initiatives for digitising industry, whenever identified and updated according to the feedback received by several Member States till 31/01/2019;

  • An overview of the fully operational and in preparation DIHs (hub name, city, region, link to smart specialisation strategies (RIS3), link to EU projects and initiatives etc.);

  • Link to smart specialisation for each hub, identified through the information provided by the hub owners on their DIH Catalogue profile. The link to smart specialisation has been established through matching the information provided by the hub owners on their hubs’ activities with the information on the RIS3 priorities applicable in each region of every EU Member State as presented on the European Commission’s Eye@RIS3 tool (;

  • A list of RTOs/universities with a DIH role in EU FP7 and H2020 projects. This list also includes SMEs and big industry players that have participated in these projects as partners1;

  • A list of the regions per country that currently have no DIHs.

The information included was valid as per 31/01/2019 so these country fiches are aimed to serve as snapshots of that time. To see the above mentioned information for a country click on the relavant link below:
