InnDIH's strength is based on the infrastructures for experimentation and the technological, business and access to finance knowledge of the partners of a consortium led by ITI, in combination with a solid experience and connections at the European level, conforming a complete and complementary ecosystem for the provision of high value digitalization services to SMEs and Public Administrations (PAs) for technology uptake, support and definition of new business models, organized in 4 blocks: Test before invest, Training and skills, Support to find investments and Innovation ecosystem and networking. This set of services is based on demonstration, enabling and experimentation infrastructures and it is adapted to the needs of the territory, and thanks to the support received from the European Commission, the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Tourism, and the Valencian Region Government, the companies receiving them do not have to pay anything.

Project activities and results will be actively disseminated by the consortium, collaborating with Digital Transformation Accelerator (DTA) and other EU networks, organizing events and meetings at EU and regional level with stakeholders, policy-makers, EEN, etc. InnDIH portfolio of services will be reinforced by the links with the EDIH network, solving other users' technology needs, starting from the 26 corridors already set (6 individual ones, 20 from EuHubs4Data). In a nutshell, InnDIH grows in a rich ecosystem, following the EU's objective to attain industrial and social wealth through the green and digital transition. Its participation as an EDIH in the DIGITAL programme is a key element to boost digitalization in the Valencia region
