YA SOMOS MIEMBROS DE LA RED “DIGITAL INNOVATION HUBS” DE LA COMISIÓN EUROPEA

El centro tecnológico FIWARE SPACE es desde ahora miembro de un selecto club de HUBs reconocidos por la Comisión Europea que destinan su esfuerzo diario al desarrollo tecnológico de las empresas que componen su ecosistema de innovación.

FIWARE Space, centro tecnológico de la Diputación de Badajoz que desarrolla sus funciones en el marco del proyecto “Badajoz Es Más”, ha sido incluido por la Comisión Europea en su Plataforma ‘Smart Specialisation’, entrando así a formar parte de un selecto grupo de centros tecnológicos europeos dedicados a los desarrollos tecnológicos dentro del sector del Internet de las Cosas.

La Comisión Europea certifica así el trabajo que durante todo este año se ha estado desarrollando en FIWARE Space para crear un ecosistema de innovación junto a empresas locales de todo tipo y de cualquier sector. El fin último es buscar, diseñar o desarrollar soluciones innovadoras basadas en tecnología FIWARE para generar nuevas oportunidades de negocio.

La nueva categoría de Digital Innovation HUB (DiH) que tiene FIWARE Space y entrar a formar parte de esta plataforma europea aporta un plus más al tejido empresarial de la provincia de Badajoz y de toda Extremadura, contribuyendo a la digitalización y desarrollo tecnológico de pymes, empresas e industrias de la región.

Para lograr este hito, FIWARE Space ha tenido que cumplir con una serie de requisitos fundamentales que han sido evaluados por la Comisión Europea, como, por ejemplo, ser un centro destinado a apoyar y ayudar a las empresas del ecosistema para que sean más competitivas gracias al uso de las nuevas tecnologías.

Además, desde FIWARE Space se ofrece una infraestructura tecnológica, asesoramiento, apoyo a las empresas a la hora de buscar financiación para sus proyectos tecnológicos, entre otros servicios. Desde el centro instalado en el Parque Científico y Tecnológico de Extremadura en Badajoz, se fomenta la cooperación entre empresas, proveedores, asociaciones, incubadoras de empresas, organizaciones empresariales, equipos y grupos de investigación, y cuantos actores sean necesarios para que las propuestas que hasta allí llegan tengan mayor visibilidad y aumenten sus posibilidades de generar negocio.

Para todo ello, FIWARE Space, como DiH cuenta con el apoyo de la UE, con lo que se garantiza que las empresas que demanden sus servicios estén perfectamente preparadas para afrontar su adaptación a los nuevos mercados y retos globales.

Este reconocimiento por parte de la Comisión Europea es sin duda un aliciente más para seguir trabajando como hasta ahora, en la materialización de un proyecto de SmartProvincia que está dejando muchas iniciativas verdaderamente interesantes y que animamos a todos a conocer a través de nuestra web www.fiware.space o presencialmente, acercándose a visitar nuestro centro en Badajoz.

This center is part of a global project called “Badajoz Es Más“, which aims to develop municipalities with a better quality of life through sustainable development. The objective is clear: to turn the province of Badajoz into an Intelligent Territory or a “Smart Province”. In order to achieve this goal, it is a must to involve the local companies, the public administration and the citizens.

FIWARE Space coordinates the activity related to the knowledge, use and possibilities offered by the Provincial Platform for Smart Management of Public Services, which allows the integration of information from different smart services in one place, to facilitate the analysis and management of services that are the responsibility of the Provincial Council of Badajoz. This platform uses the latest technologies promoted by the European Commission about how to integrate near real-time data and how to manage context information.

SERVICES

– A 2-month mentoring program to go deeper in the technology knowledge and the opportunities that are behind the intelligent province development, to know first-hand the technological work that is being carried out and how to take advantages of this digital transformation. In these 2 months, the company will adapt its solution or service to a FIWARE smart solution, thus being compatible with the platform used by the Badajoz Provincial council that connects all the data sources of the province, and with any other smart city platform that uses this technology.
