Project Coordinator

  • Politecnico Milano (Italy)


The AI REGIO project includes 36 partners from 11 European countries. Partners are on a mission to help European SMEs on the path towards artificial intelligence-driven digitalization whilst further integrating the pan-European network of regional Digital Innovation Hubs (DIHs). The AI REGIO innovation action aims to consolidate the collaboration in the pan-European network of Digital Innovation Hubs (DIHs) by enhancing the offering of regional DIHs to manufacturing SMEs on three levels:

  • Better coordination of regional smart specialisation strategies
  • Enhancing knowledge transfer across the network of DIHs
  • Upgrade the offering of DIHs by AI-driven applications

AI REGIO follows the four-stages of the Vanguard innovation strategy (Learn-Connect-Demonstrate-Commercialize) by constantly aligning its methods with the AI DIH Network initiative and its assets with I4MS/DIH BEinCPPS Phase II and MIDIH/L4MS Phase III projects.
