About the Digital Innovation Hub for Healthcare Robotics
The Digital Innovation Hubs for Healthcare Robotics (DIH-HERO – www.dih-hero.eu) is a pan-European innovation network created to stimulate and accelerate the adoption of healthcare robotics across the EU with an emphasis on supporting SMEs who are actively researching and developing these critical technologies.
The Horizon 2020 DIH-HERO project has been awarded 16 million euro by the European Commission and seventeen world-leading EU research organisations and universities are creating a sustainable pan-European innovation network for robotics innovators with this support.
With a focus on cross-border innovation for EU healthcare companies, DIH-HERO will offer 8 million euros spread over 3 years to financially support SMEs and their partners in the form of travel vouchers and open calls for experiments to accelerate the transfer of healthcare robotics technology developed in the EU to their intended markets.
To add value, DIH-HERO offers a range of services that are key to success in healthcare robotics. These services include technology brokerage, information on public and private funding, support for certification, testing, go-to-market planning and community knowledge-building.
