Abstract

TEXPAND aims to become one of the recognized European hubs able to provide digital evolutionary services such as testing before investing, training and skills development, support to find investments, networking and access to innovation ecosystems, according to the DIGITAL-2021-EDIH-01 call expectation. The project targets the digital transformation needs of Companies and Public Authorities in the Piemonte and Valle d’Aosta (VdA) area. The proposal is strongly focused on the specific topics of Artificial Intelligence (AI), Cybersecurity (CS), notwithstanding - due to the nature of the consortium - all the ICT panoramas can be covered and integrated, with regard on other key enabling technologies like advanced robotics, extended reality, internet of things, additive manufacturing, next generation network, distributed intelligence, and many other. Within the project a list of 50 services was drawn up, organized by categories, daily cost and duration: the EXPAND strategy is to provide some free of charge services (all for PA, some for the enterprises) and a sub-set of services via a clearly defined final cost: the rationale behind this is to guarantee the full commitment of the entities requiring support. The project is open to all the companies with a focus on the manufacturing and industrial ecosystem, paying particular attention to those who develop or deploy technologies with a positive impact, directly or indirectly, on the environment and sustainability. The filtering of requests will take place thorough an open, transparent, and non-discriminatory mechanism, creating a selection funnel: initially will reach the maximum potentially interested audience and then will start the vis-à-vis discussion and actuhe EXPAND (EXtended Piedmont and Aosta valley Network for Digitalization) is the application of the Piedmont - Valle d’Aosta cluster to the selection for one of the node of the forthcoming EDIH European network in the context of the Digital Europe Program
