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 will focus on providing services which connect business and healthcare stakeholders in developing innovative products and services for the healthcare market. It will establish 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 is aimed to deliver 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 will connect and stimulate robotics innovation in all aspects of healthcare. DIH-HERO is built on concrete plans to sustain the network beyond the time span of the project and to provide a long-term network for innovators in healthcare. The network of Digital Innovation Hubs created and supported by DIH-HERO will ensure that robotics innovation in healthcare is accelerated, that SME can develop global reach and that the advantages of robotics-based healthcare can be propagated across Europe.
Purpose of the first travel voucher call
Travel Vouchers (TVs) can be used by SMEs, often characterised by limited financial resources, for visiting cross-border core members of the DIH-HERO consortium and/or for participating in the brokerage events for the Technology Demonstrator (TD) and Technology Transfer Experiment (TTE) calls. By providing SMEs with 200 travel vouchers for cross-border travelling up to a maximum amount of €2,000 per voucher, financial barriers that hinder connectivity are reduced and knowledge exchange is stimulated. For the 1st Travel Voucher Call, the first 200 submitted proposals that are considered eligible will be funded on a reimbursable basis.
