The Digital Innovation for Manufacturing Engagement and Skills Hub (DI-MESH) provides a new support mechanism for Scottish manufacturing SMEs to enable them to improve productivity and competitiveness and connect into new supply chains through the adoption of Cyber-Physical Systems and Internet of Things (CPS/IoT) technologies. DI-MESH is led by the Advanced Forming Research Centre at the University of Strathclyde in partnership with Scottish Enterprise and Scotland’s Innovation Centre for Sensor and Imaging Systems, CENSIS. Activities include raising awareness of the advantages of CPS/IoT technologies, providing education on and access to CPS/IoT technologies, assistance with raising finance for capital expenditure, and stimulating commercialisation activity amongst manufacturers and suppliers of CPS/IoT equipment.


The Digital Manufacturing Innovation Hub Wales (DMIW) is based at the Waterton Technology centre and has demonstration facilities covering the following I4.0 and CPS advanced manufacturing technologies: Virtual factory, data collection and analysis, man-machine interface. Expertise is available in systems integration, interfacing with legacy equipment and providing enterprise wide solutions.




IoT‐Compass Hub supports the exploitation IoT, CPS and Digital manufacturing in SMEs and MidCaps in the South Ostrobothnia region in Finland. It forms a demonstration, piloting and development environment for manufacturing industries using the existing IoT and Cyber Physical Factory – infrastructures. Its key activity is to mentor and support companies in creating their know‐how and getting new talents. The hub will also form a networking community and neutral forum where manufacturing companies, technology providers, universities, RTOs and expert service providers can meet and start new activities.


Irish Manufacturing Research is part of a select EU network of I4MS – Regional Manufacturing Digital

Innovation Hubs that provide a one­stop­shop for manufacturing companies to access all of the supports they need to become ready for the next generation of digital manufacturing. We provide information and support to manufacturing SMEs from:

  • Access to key research capacity and skills in Ireland and across Europe Access to Competence Centres across Europe and Ireland

  • Access and support in accessing public and private funding

  • Connectivity to networks of manufacturing companies (SMEs and multinational) Best known methods and case­studies

  • Technology roadmaps and frontier technologies Integration into EU consortia and funding programs Access to experimental facilities

  • Connectivity to national funding bodies and authorities



The focus of the IS4PROd RDMI Hub is in the development, integration and implementation of cyber- physical systems (CPS) in Manufacturing SMEs. The applications include product and production tracking, resource and energy monitoring, industrial control systems, operator engagement and context-aware training, decision support and visualisation of key performance data and metrics vertically throughout the operation and across the value streams and supply-chain. The hub supports pilot implementations of I4MS technologies in existing manufacturing facilities, the growth of new business in the regions incubation centres and the competence development and mentoring of start- up companies addressing the use of advanced ICT in industry.


The Optimise Hub is focused on bringing digital technologies into the heart of SMEs within the region in order to optimise their production processes and achieve growth. Currently our focus is on predictive maintenance technologies to reduce downtime and ensure that supply chains are functioning effectively and sales continue to be delivered without interruption and we have two EU funded projects in this area, both funded by I4MS. We are also working with regional SMEs to implement their technologies to support manufacturing processes too and have linked with local Independent Software Vendors to achieve this.


Hub around 4.0 Industry in La Rioja region in Spain aiming at providing an enabling environment for SMEs and other regional stakeholders in order to facilitate the adoption of Cyber Physical Systems (CPS) and Internet of Things (IoT) in traditional and key manufacturing sectors in the region (mainly Agrofood and Footwear).


IoT North Poland

We help manufacturing companies in introducing innovative solutions in the field of Internet of Things (IoT). Through the cooperation between entrepreneurs, academics and startups, IoT North Poland constitutes a solid platform for identifying needs, linking the stakeholders and financing search for common undertakings.


NAVARDMI-HUB is the Digital Manufacturing Innovation HUB in Navarra, Spain, focused on IoT and CPS (Cyber-physical Systems).
It is an example of the collaborative activity in the Regional Innovation Ecosystem, Competence Centres are specialized units that work together in the development of sensing/control and intelligent data processing technologies principally, maintaining a continuous contact with industry partners of the Region.
Technological developments focus on the demands of productive sectors and suite their needs with specific solutions and collaborations at European and regional level. ADItech Technology Corporation is a private foundation to connect science, technology and industry in Navarra, with the aim of contributing value to society, developing new products that incorporate the latest knowledge on technology and innovation and R&D, generating jobs and economic development in the region. AIN (Association of Industry in Navarra) and the Institute of Smart Cities of Public University of Navarra are the Competence Centers directly involved i9n this initiative.
