  4. ENTIRE led by Tyndall National Institute Cork will help companies become more competitive in their business/production processes using digital technologies such as IoT and sensors.

The Irish EDIHs are part of the EU-wide EDIH network. EDIHs combine the benefits of a regional presence with the opportunities available to a pan-European network. The European coverage of the network facilitates the exchange of best practices across hubs in different countries as well as the provision of specialised services across regions when the required skills are not locally available.
