Project Description


A Pan-European network of 26 robotics Digital Innovation Hubs (DIHs) to promote and accelerate the knowledge and technology exchange among the different centres and facilitate the adoption of the latest robotic technologies in the field of Agile Production.

The DIH2 project believes in the power of robotics to transform the agility of manufacturing in small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and facilitates the connection that will enable agile production in factories where speed and versatility are essential to satisfy customer demand.

DIH2, which has the objective to grow this network to over 170 DIHs by 2022, improves the cost effectiveness of advanced robotic solutions; drives growth of the robotics market and generats innovation that maximizes productivity and optimizes agility in over 300,000 manufacturing SMEs across the European Union.

Eurecat, that participates in the project through its Robotics and Automation Unit and its Consultancy Department, generates the tools for the DIH2 network to share knowledge and best practices between the different innovation centres.

The project is led by the Technological Centre VTT (Finland) and counts with a consortium formed by 36 partners from 26 European countries.
