WHAT IS DCH?
The mission of the Data Cycle Hub is to be the Reference Digital Innovation Hub in the Valencia Region to promote data, artificial intelligence and cybersecurity based innovation. The objective is to close the gap between research and the industry, specifically SMEs, as well as the Public Administration, providing innovative solutions and services that require advanced data analysis, machine learning and artificial intelligence.
It is an ecosystem composed of all the relevant agents: Industry, Regional Agencies, Accelerators, Chamber of Commerce, Education, as well as the group of technological companies that work in these fields.
All the technologies covered by this DIH are around the DATA, from the Data Gathering to the visualization. In this sense, the DIH addresses Primarily Big Data and Artificial Intelligence, but also other key digital enabling technologies like Cyber Physical Systems, IoT, Cloud and High Performance Computing Platforms or Statistics Optimization.
The DCH is included in the Digital Innovation Hubs catalogue of the European Commission. Likewise, DCH is part of the AI Digital Innovation Hub Network, a European network where only 30 DIH focused on Artificial Intelligence where selected. 3 out of them are from Spain. DCH and another 24 of these DIH have signed an agreement that aims at cross-border collaboration to respond to market needs. With this Collaboration Agreement between DIHs, the DCH consolidates its relationship in Europe with the main nodes transferring Artificial Intelligence Technologies to companies and Public Administration and, at the same time, the DCH is integrated into the network, sharing good practices with the rest of the members.
DCH has been recognized as a Finalist in the Digital Innovation Hub Champion Challenge organized by DIHNET.EU for two consecutives years (2019 and 2020), valuing the number of SMEs it serves, the positioning in the regional and national ecosystem, the services offered, the collaboration strategy and training and sustainability mechanisms.
This seal recognizes the work of the Data Cycle Hub in creating the best conditions for long-term business success. It is therefore a reference ecosystem that provides neutral information about digital enablers and advises companies in a personalized way, whatever their size and sector, and the Public Administration, to make the best decisions regarding technological investments to be made or business models to define in the digital economy.
In the same way, it is prepared so that companies can develop pilot projects and technology tests in laboratory environments prior to the investment or launch of a technological product to the market. For this, the DCH has a global and exhaustive knowledge of both existing technologies and trends, as well as the needs of companies and the market.
Similarly, it has technological infrastructures, laboratories and platforms to offer companies, and also the ability to generate knowledge and technologies to create solutions that do not exist in the market but that the market demands. And in addition, it is able to facilitate the financing and acceleration of technology companies and thus enrich the regional business ecosystem.
In this way it complies with 4 pillars of fundamental services:
- Awareness raising about digitalization, advice and access to information, knowledge, technologies, infrastructure, laboratories … in HPC, Big Data, Artificial Intelligence and Cybersecurity, which allows companies to “Test before Invest”, and thus be able to take the best decisions regarding technological investments or business models to be defined in the digital economy.
- Training and skills in digital technologies, with the collaboration of training centres and universities.
- Generation of an innovation and collaboration ecosystem bringing together companies and administrations that need new technological solutions with technological companies that provide market-ready solutions.
- Support to find investments to carry out the defined business models.Send feedback
