According to the Digital Agenda for Europe, businesses are strategically placed to use research infrastructure resources and services to enhance growth and foster innovation. The EOSC Digital Innovation Hub (DIH), an international, multi-player cooperation, provides an interface for supporting this commercial innovation.

This month, we are launching 4th (and final) Expression of Interest (EoI) for Business Pilots. The goal is to onboard businesses developing innovative solutions and – with EOSC technologies and services – help them bring products and services to market. 

Through this EoI, we will also support industry applicants wishing to become service and content providers for the EOSC community.

For instance:

  • data analytics to improve healthcare
  • services for safer and cleaner transport
  • machine learning and AI optimisation
  • applications to reduce the cost of public services.

The selected business pilots will receive support in, among other areas:

  • accessing e-infrastructure resources and additional technical services;
  • prototyping, scaling up, design, performance verification and testing;
  • building partnerships with other SMEs and industry stakeholders, innovation clusters and accelerators;
  • business coaching and training for increased market uptake;
  • boosting visibility at a European and international level.

The requested services will be provided by EOSC FutureC-SCALEEGI-ACEOpenAIRE-NexusDICE and RelianceSee here for the full overviewPlease be aware that, because of most these projects ending at the end of June, the access to and continuation of requested services will be guaranteed only until June 30th.
