Dear DIHNET community

We are excited to bring you news from agrROBOfood, I4MS4TS, TRINITY, Change2Twin, DigiPLACE and Smart Anything Everywhere initiatives for this month. There is no doubt October is going to be terrific!

Join Change2Twin

Change2Twin is an Innovation Action in Horizon 2020 addressing digital twin technology for manufacturing SMEs and slightly bigger companies. The project includes 2 Open Calls that will be launched to fund a total of 21 application experiments with up to 90KEUR each. Prior to these Open Calls, companies could apply for a 10K€ voucher (49 vouchers available) which they can spend to get an assessment of their potential for digital twinning by a certified DIH.
DIHs play a key role in finding and encouraging companies to apply for one of the digital twin experiments to be funded by Change2Twin. To prepare DIHs for this role, Change2Twin will train and certify a limited number of DIHs in the Change2Twin methodology. Find out more here.
