The major objective of the DIH-HERO project (Digital Innovation Hubs in Healthcare Robotics) is to establish a broad-based pan-European network of Digital Innovation Hubs specialized in Healthcare Robotics. The network focuses on providing services which connect business and healthcare stakeholders in developing innovative products and services for the healthcare market. It establishes channels between healthcare and technology providers that reduce barriers to adoption and create strong mutual understanding between robotics technology innovators and healthcare professionals. Each Hub partner delivers both technical and medical expertise through their pre-existing operational relationships with hospitals and healthcare facilities. This initiative unites expertise in business development, access to finance and innovation to robotics technology and healthcare expertise in a network of hubs that connect and stimulate robotics innovation in all aspects of healthcare. The network of Digital Innovation Hubs created and supported by DIH-HERO ensures that robotics innovation in healthcare is accelerated, that SME can develop global reach and that the advantages of robotics-based healthcare can be spread across Europe.
Purpose of the first travel voucher call
Travel Vouchers (TVs) can be used by SMEs for cross-border travelling in order to join a conference organised by DIH-HERO such as e.g. the knowledge conference on the 25th of April 2023 in Barcelona / network meeting and/or, participate in a DIH-HERO workshop during the ERF 2023 on the 14th to 16th March in Odense and or to visit a Digital Innovation Hub of the DIH-HERO consortium in another country to make use of its services.
By providing SMEs with travel vouchers for cross-border travelling up to a maximum amount of €4,000 per voucher, financial barriers that hinder connectivity are reduced and knowledge exchange is stimulated. For the 2nd Travel Voucher Call, the first submitted proposals that are considered eligible will be funded on a reimbursable basis (first-come-first served principle) until the travel voucher budget is exhausted.
