DANTE European Digital Innovation Hub (EDIH) project is included in the European Digital Innovation Hubs (EDIHs) Network. DANTE focuses on supporting the digital transition of Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs), Public Administrations, and professionals operating in the domains of Healthy and Active Ageing, Ambient Assisted Living (AAL), and Smart Environments. The core purpose of DANTE is to empower these stakeholders with cutting-edge digital services and tools.
Moreover, DANTE is deeply committed to making a positive impact on social and health services by reducing costs and ensuring the provision of high-quality support to older adults, fostering their active participation in society. Lastly, DANTE sets its sights on influencing policies and Public Administrations by fostering connections between social and health policies at regional, national, and international levels, and the citizens, professionals, and companies engaged in the field of Healthy and Active ageing. By embracing technology-driven “smart” living, DANTE aspires to create a harmonious synergy among all stakeholders in pursuit of a healthier and more active society.

The catalog of services provided by DANTE EDIH encompasses a diverse range of offerings, including:
• Test Before Invest
• Skills and Training
• Support to Find Investments
• Support to Innovation Ecosystems & Networking
• Support to Stakeholders

Besides, DANTE will offer the opportunity to visit and explore cutting-edge living labs equipped state-of-the-art digital services and technologies. Therefore, SMEs and PAs will have the possibility to test (i.e., test before invest) and learn how to use (i.e., skills & training) such technological solutions before thinking about an actual investment. The HTlab team will manage some of the privisioned living labs and some of the skills and training courses. Finally, the members of the HTlab will be in charge, all over the project, of managing all the Dissemination and Communication activities of DANTE EDIH.
