FIT EDIH is the result of the fusioning of two consortia of Digital Innovation Hubs (DIHs) from the Centru Region which passed the national selection phase, namely FIT DIH and LAB4COM. The two consortia decided to join forces for the second selection phase, namely that of becoming part of the European Digital Innovation Hub (EDIH) network and receiving co-funding from the Digital Europe Programme.
ALT BV Cluster, founding member of FIT EDIH, was identified among the first 3 DIHs in Romania by the Joint Research Center of the European Commission, and published in its catalog.
Between 2017-2019, future FIT DIH members (ALT BV and ASIMCOV) participate in technical assistance programs focused on supporting the development DIHs, knowledge transfer and competencies in these organisations. Examples include ALT BV participation in “Smart Factories in New EU Member States”, ASIMCOV’s development of InnoHub as part of DIHELP, benefiting from technical assistance from IMP3ROVE for the development of the DIH business model.
In 2020, FIT DIH was founded by ICE, AICAR, ASIMCOV (representing the iNNoHUB ecosystem), AMB, CNIPMMR and ALTBV and organized 4 Entrepreneurial Discovery Processes in key regional sectors in order to map regional digitalization needs for digitalization services.
