The European Digital Innovation Centre, DIGIS3, aims to ensure a smart, sustainable and cohesive digital transformation of SMEs and Public Administration entities in Castilla y León, with a territorial approach in both rural and urban areas, focusing on cohesion and providing comprehensive support to users to facilitate their access to specialised technical knowledge and experimentation environments. It works as a one-stop shop, with a central core of knowledge and training structured around artificial intelligence and supercomputing. User support is provided through digitisation routes adapted to the users' level of digital maturity and taking into account the specific needs of the industry and the geographical environment.
To facilitate knowledge and access to services, the DIGIS3 project provides a digital platform where users can obtain detailed information by category and by service. This marketplace is characterised by the fact that it allows services to be offered by several DIHs (or partners), so that it can offer a more personalised experience to the user; it is also possible to choose the partner/DIH that will provide the service, either by allowing the user to select it or by offering the possibility of being guided by an AI-based algorithm that will choose the partner that will perform the service based on the closest or most recommendable one for the objectives pursued by the interested party.
In addition, in the DIGIS3 marketplace, users can directly view the applicable subsidies or grants in a convenient and simple format and can carry out both the technological maturity test of the company (DMA) and the DII questionnaire (Digital Intensity Test).
DIGIS3 specialises in artificial intelligence, high-performance computing, Industry 4.0, demographic challenges, smart renewables, smart agriculture, circular economy and smart cities and territories.
AIR Institute leads this project in which the Institute for Business Competitiveness (ICE), the University of León (ULE), the Digital Innovation Hub Industry 4.0 (DIHBU), the Digital Innovation Hub on Livestock, Environment, Agriculture and Forest (DIH-LEAF) and the Supercomputing Centre of Castilla y León (SCAYLE) participate, as well as several affiliated entities.
