HUBCAP: Digital innovation opportunities for SMEs
With the third round of INNOVATE applications now open, the HUBCAP project is looking for companies that want to enter into innovative collaborations to develop digital tools and products within model-based design for cyber-physical systems. Consortia of two–three SMEs may apply.
The INNOVATE call will fund 10 innovation projects that will work towards the development and implementation of highly innovative and challenging model-based design (MBD) solutions for cyber physical systems (CPS).
The INNOVATE call projects will have a total duration of 12 months divided into three stages: Design, Develop & Operate and Assess. HUBCAP will provide technology and business support to ensure the highest possible impact for each project.
Consortiums applying to the INNOVATE call will potentially get:
Funding of up to € 200,000
Coaching and mentoring support provided by a local digital hub
The opportunity to test CPS and MBD tools and solutions
The opportunity to reach new customers
Access to a vast community of experts
Access to a broad network of other SMEs
HUBCAP is a pan-European development program headed by the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Aarhus University and an exclusive network of digital innovation hubs embracing digital innovation using model-based design technology for Cyber-Physical Systems. It provides funding opportunities, cutting-edge technology and business support services.
Backed by the Smart Anything Everywhere initiative, this EU funded project builds on seven digital innovation hubs across Europe – each of them embedded in regional innovation ecosystems and offering complimentary technical expertise and specialist knowledge in CPS application domains.
