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 two of the SME experiments selected; ClimateByte (from Amigo SRL, Italy) and Employchain_ESCO (from BlockchainX AB, Sweden).
Employchain_ESCO is a Tinder-like job matching app from Sweden that matches skills supply and demand in the labor market. In this experiment, a skill recommender system is developed, which is based on a knowledge graph that is enriched with all Swedish higher education learning opportunities and their learning outcomes mapped to ESCO skills. This enables much more accurate representation and matching of education-related CV data. In this experiment, ahedd provides Ontology Engineering and Knowledge Graph construction services.
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 etc.), 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.
