We accelerate factories through robotics.

DIH² believes in the power of robotics to transform the agility of manufacturing in Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) and to drive economic growth across the European Union. Our role is to facilitate the connections that enable agile production in factories, where speed and versatility are essential to satisfy customer demand. To this end, we currently bring together a network of 74 Digital Innovation Hubs (DIHs) to generate innovation that maximises productivity and optimises agility in over 300,000 manufacturing SMEs and mid-caps across the European Union. Our ambition is to expand the network to over 170 DIHs by 2022.

     Where we come from.

The DIH² project is funded by Horizon 2020 - the European Union research and innovation programme tasked with bringing great ideas from lab to market. In turn, the programme is at the heart of the Europe 2020 strategy, which aims to achieve smart, sustainable and inclusive economic growth for the future of Europe.

     Where we’re going.

We seek to generate innovation that maximises productivity and optimises agility in manufacturing Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) and Mid-Caps across the European Union. In addition, our goals include improving the cost effectiveness of advanced robotics solutions and driving growth of the robotics market.
