The DIH4CPS project is an initiative for Fostering DIHs embedding Interoperability in Cyber-Physical Systems of European SMEs (DIH4CPS). The project is designed to help European enterprises overcome innovation hurdles to ultimately establish Europe as a world-leading innovator of the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
The DIH4CPS website expands more on full plans and opportunities. 


To create an interdisciplinary network of DIHs and solution providers, focused on cyber-physical and embedded systems, interweaving knowledge and technologies from different domains, and connecting regional clusters with the pan-European expert pool of DIHs.  

The initiative is backed by the IVLab, an experienced and well-established network organization focused on InteroperabilityDIH4CPS innately builds on an extensive existing network, add value to its existing knowledge transfer capabilities and guarantee the sustainability of the growing DIH network.  

DIH4CPS expands the already existing network and aims for creating an integrated platform for DIHs from different, especially digitally underdeveloped sectors and regions. A selection of 11 initial-phase start-up application experiments guarantees outstanding funding for European SMEs and Mid-Caps right from the start and demonstrates the high dedication of the consortium to reduce the digital divide. At least 10 additional experiments will take up that torch during the project and allow external companies from sectors in need to further exploit the DIH4CPS network and uplift their portfolio, especially by including (semi)-autonomy into their products and systems.  

Implemented in the IVLab structure, the DIH4CPS Network will leverage and sustain its impact far beyond the project duration, creating a vibrant, overarching and cross-sector one-stop-shop for collaboration between SMEs, DIHs and Tech providers. 

Eligibility criteria: 

  • Each experiment’s consortium must consist of at least one DIH currently enrolled in the EC DIH Catalogue (or plan to be enrolled).     
  • You can receive up to € 180,000 if your experiment pertains to sectors where Cyber-Physical and Embedded systems are underdeveloped are of special interest.  
  • The DIH4CPS Open Calls will be handled using the EMS-platform, where all vital information is transparently uploaded.    

The Open Call for Proposals is NOW accepting Application Submissions until the DEADLINE of August 31st, 2020!
