SCoDIHNet has the objective to support the operation of the DIHs and to help usage of research & innovation results. SCoDIHNet has developed a set of 18 services that will support DIHs, they are offered on 2 online platforms and also a number of catalogues with relevant information for DIHS (Platforms, Replicability, Stakeholders, Heatmap). It is also a way to collect needs and requirements of end users (Industry) in order to feed the strategic Research Agendas and influence the future work programs
Early Innovation Champions
- Open Calls (FTSP) has become a strong mechanism for introducing opportunities for new actors to shape the productisation and commercial relevance of European R&I projects.
- The engagement of SMEs and start-ups is a source of innovation within edge computing but is not yet fully realised towards sustainability.
- AIOTI Membership acts on both sides:
- Coordinators and developers of Open Calls within projects
- Participants presenting for Open Calls and/or successfully entering projects
- Task Force will support the successful delivery and innovation potential of AIOTI membership and scale the impact of activities bringing it closer to market and engaging larger organisations and. non-grant based finance
- AIOTI Research and Innovation Agenda (SRIA) – promotion and implementation
- Participation to European Partnerships Collaborative Events
- Alignment of the research priorities and promote which activities are specific for AIOTI In the European research and Innovation landscape
- Organization and participation to selected sessions at IoT Week 2023
- Support organization IoT Webinars/Workshops
- Develop paper on metaverse, digital twins and edge/AI
- Providing input to EU consultations (H2020 final evaluation, HE mid-term evaluation)
Develop a method for IoT ecosystem transformation
- Develop and publish a new method for orchestrating digital transformation for (platform-based) collaborating organizations, including developing new models of multi-stakeholder value creation.
- Connect with large scale pilots to guide the governance of data spaces and the implementation of responsible data sharing solutions.
- Linking the AIOTI community with our DIH IoT Network, SCoDIHNet, providing information where IoT focused DIH are located, and organise networking activitie
Support the European cross-sectoral data economy
- Devise novel IoT-based business models using data-agile solutions to contribute to a European responsible data economy, preventing ‘winner takes all’ market failures.
- To stimulate experimentation with end-users to address real needs and to enable innovations informed by real-world, day-to-day practices, habits and routines. Open large scale pilots to SMEs; to test and validate interoperability.
- Develop and promote an IoT wiki, mapping IoT-relevant technologies, devices and services, as well as IoT-related expertise across different industry sectors throughout Europe.
Show how IoT enables the circular economy
- Develop a framework aligned with the EU’s Green New Deal, that enables economic opportunities provided by IoT-based transparency in closing material and energy loops.
- Partner with leading climate and environmental organizations to enhance the synergy between the digital and the sustainability revolutions.
- Link our IoT-Circular Economy framework to EU, regional and national governments’ sustainability programmes.
Influence policy to boost Europe’s smart networks and services
- Gather empirical evidence of best practices and business impact, to develop clear lessons for the realization of globally-competitive smart networks and services.
- Connect to, contribute to, and guide EU policy on smart networks and services, incorporating the working group’s knowledge of collaborative innovation.
- Continue to publish and reach out to policy makers and industry groups on lessons learned and pitfalls to avoid when setting the rules of the game for digital innovation.
Replicability and Scalability
The mission is to support IoT and Edge Computing R&I projects, providing AIOTI members a tool and guidelines to assess and foster the Replicability and Scalability of project results, maximizing their impact, facilitating their uptake and bring them to the market. Moreover, this initiative is aimed to encourage innovation and stimulate cooperation among European, national, regional and local actors.
- Provide criteria and guidelines to be taken into consideration when we talk about Replicability and Scalability in an EU R&I Project, starting from LSPs (especially in IoT domain and 5GPPP Pilot projects) experiences
- Provide a “Replicability and Scalability Assessment Tool” to increase project efficiency and maximise the impact of project results, in line with the EU Commission expectations
- Facilitate emerging of Innovation Ecosystems in EU and their interconnection
Early Innovation Champions:
- Provide members with tools and best practice for designing and delivering open calls within their proposals and projects
- Connect AIOTI members with opportunities to apply to relevant open calls
- Align the AIOTI with key Edge-IoT AI ICT 48, DATA-01 and other relevant Cluster projects
- Support members who have participated in open calls in commercialising and/or maintaining the solutions developed with external actors
- Guide future application of the mechanism and improve impact of AIOTI participants
