Health and Sustainable Living, Digital Transformation and Cybersecurity


The aim of the current proposal is to create an EDIH that will act as a reference point (one stop shop) to support the competitiveness of SMEs and the digital transformation of both production and development processes of services and applications (in public and private sector), as well as for the integration and enhancement of innovative products and technologies. The thematic targeting of EDIH covers the areas of Smart Health and Sustainable Living, Digital Transformation and Cybersecurity. Typical services that the hub can support are the diffusion of know-how, pre-investment testing and networking of a business / know-how / “live laboratory” ecosystem in areas with different geographical, economic and cultural characteristics. The primary goal is the design and development of digital applications and services, as they will result from the interaction of Municipalities, chambers, companies, SMEs and University bodies. The development sectors concern applications of digital transformation (in Municipalities, and companies) and applications of Smart Health, sustainable living and development, interoperable processes in public and private sectors, with the possibility of testing through the Hub on a large population scale, ensuring the security of digital personal and professional data.


Some of the applications that can be supported are:

COVID-19 traceability (e.g., fast testing and traceability in ports, airports, borders, islands, cities, ships) – high-speed data exchange, high-volume data analysis, IoT use, pre / postoperative patient monitoring (ophthalmological, dental cases, etc.) distance to reduce the risk of patient exposure and prevention of complications – (AR / VR assisted reality use, AI) etc., smart applications for sustainable living and development depending on the characteristics of the area (island areas, rural , cities), the environment etc. – (IoT, AI), as well as for digital transformation in municipalities, decisions assisted by AI etc – (Interoperability, digital transformation (digital first & digital by default)) and data security issues – cybersecurity, privacy (The Once-Only Principle, Privacy by Design and by Default)
