|Coordinator:||Isabelle Dor, CEA, France|
|Project duration:||September 2017 – August 2019, 36 Months|
|Partners:||CEA (FR), Intel (IE), ST-F (FR), ST-I (IT), Thales (FR), AVL (AT), Digital Catapult UK), Fraunhofer (DE), Fortiss (DE), CSEM (CH), KTH (SE), BME (HU), UNICAN (ES), Blumorpho (FR)|
The fed4SAE project aims at creating a pan-European network of Digital Innovation Hubs (DIH) by leveraging existing regional tech or businesses ecosystems across complete value chains and multiple competencies. The network of DIHs will enable startups, SMEs and midcap companies in all sectors to build and create new digital products and services. The project mission also includes innovation management – linking these companies to suppliers and investors to create innovative CPS solutions and accelerate their development and industrialization.
The fed4SAE pan-European network will enable startups, SMEs and midcap companies to use CPS platforms combined with expertise and knowhow from the R&D Advanced Platform. The ultimate goal of each industrial project within fed4SAE is to provide a complete solution. This includes combining hardware and software tested in a market environment prior to a large deployment to the targeted market, as well as support in business modeling and market insights through guidance from conceptual design through market launch. Application Experiments will be funded for developing innovative CPS products that will increase the competitiveness of European innovative companies.
