Transilvania DIH & Transilvania Living Lab - the journey towards innovation
The final goal of all Transilvania IT Cluster activities is enhancing innovation, and for this, our cluster works through several structures to offer its members and partners the best options to ensure the smoothest path to innovation. We are therefore the orchestrators of Transilvania Digital Innovation Hub and Transilvania Living Lab.
Transilvania Digital Innovation Hub works strategically to catalyze regional innovation potential and capabilities. On the other hand, it acts as a provider of competences, know-how, innovation programs, support for startups and SMEs. With a vision to increase competitiveness through an innovative mix between technologies, skills, systemic approach, operational models, it engages relevant regional stakeholders and proactively adapts to European and global trends. Transilvania DIH sets the framework for digital transformation in all businesses and public sectors through a cross-sectoral approach.
Transilvania IT Cluster provides its partners, Transilvania Living Lab, as a testing and co-innovation structure. Through Transilvania Living Lab, technology partners, public administration and academic and research institutions will have access to skills, methods, methodologies, know-how, tools and communities for co-creation, prototyping and testing. Transilvania Living Lab's mission is to generate co-creation and involvement in innovation processes and to validate academic research projects.
Transilvania Living Lab strives to put communities and their needs at the heart of innovation developing and experimenting with projects and services that involve smart approaches. The main key is to explore a project or an idea from as many angles and perspectives as possible and in order to do this, we involve in the designing phase the private and public sector, academia, users and other interested parties that will have a direct interaction with it.
