The European Federation of Data Driven Innovation Hubs (EUHubs4Data – EUH4D) selected 14 new experiments to expand the pool of collaborating SMEs and startups. The new experiments will address challenges such as climate risk assessment, advanced monitoring in digital manufacturing, energy management, operations optimization, tourism, job applications and comics.
ahedd, as a part of the EU4HD ecosystem, is going to provide services in 2 of the SME experiments selected; ClimateByte (from Amigo SRL, Italy) and Employchain_ESCO (from BlockchainX AB, Sweden).
ClimateByte is a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) for assessing the climate risk in agriculture at local scale, based on big data and machine learning approaches, integrating station, forecast and satellite. Big Data and ML approaches will be used, such as Decision Trees and Convolutional Neural Networks, to reach the spatial resolution required by the insurance industry. In this experiment, ahedd provides the Visualization service to produce a map for the high resolution data that are being generated.
EUH4D aims to actively contribute to the alignment of existing European initiatives towards the common objective of mobilizing, sharing and making available all types of data (close/open, personal/industrial, private/public, research…), in order to get value from them, foster the data-driven innovation in Europe, and contribute to the creation of the Common European Data Spaces. To this end, EUH4D will create a solid ecosystem, bringing together relevant European initiatives around the data economy, fostering collaboration among those initiatives towards common objectives, attracting SMEs and start-ups to use and benefit from the federated services and data sources, and raising awareness in society about the benefits of data-driven innovation.
