The DIH² Network is hosting its 3rd Convention in Brussels on Wednesday 10 May 2023.

This event will bring together European DIHs, regional authorities, as well as representatives from the European institutions, to explore and exchange thinking on the role of robotics in boosting the agility of the European manufacturing sector.

Participants will learn from the experience of other DIHs that have successfully managed to design follow-up programmes for the beneficiaries of the DIH² Network open calls. Attendees will also learn about upcoming European funding opportunities on robotics and will have the opportunity to network and explore potential collaborations for future projects and more.

The day’s agenda will be broken down into 4 key blocks:

  • Initiatives of the European Commission for DIH | Session from 9:45 to 10:15

A representative from the European Commission will present the current EU strategy for enhancing the role of DIHs in boosting the digital transformation of their local companies.

  • Role of DIH² in advancing the digitization of manufacturing industry | Session from 10:15 to 11:00

This session will provide an overview of the journey of DIH² in building a dynamic ecosystem at international and regional level. DIH² tools and services developed during this process will be presented.

  • Inspiring stories of our members | Session from 11:30 to 12:30

Member DIHs will present their involvement in the DIH² Network and how it has supported them in building their regional and international brands with the manufacturing industry.

A chance to learn about future European funding opportunities and to participate in a pitch session and explore potential partnerships with other DIHs and regional authorities in the networking session.
