Digital Innovation Hub for Cloud Based Services

The cloud based services are growing rapidly in the European economy. Technology changes fast and there will be soon 5G technology available. These facts make this project highly relevant. Nowadays clouds are environments to offer different types of services, for example machine-learning tools and Software as a Service (SaaS). The cloud environments are extremely flexible and different amounts of CPU power can be allocated from small to massive amounts of data analysis. Data can be retrieved to cloud environments from different sources, from data storages and from sensors in the IoT applications. There are numerous digital service innovation topics in different fields of industry that can be developed. The goal of this project is to develop a European-wide, transnational, interconnected development service model and network based on cloud and mobile technologies (4G/5G). The latest tools of cloud and mobile technologies can be used for hands-on learning sessions, innovative co-operation and for innovative development of pilot projects for vocational excellence and companies. There will be created five digital innovation hubs for cloud based services in different locations in Europe. These hubs will be learning and development environments to VET students as well as development service environment for companies to renew their future views, the knowhow, skills and the digital service creation. The core proof of concept is developed for the Training program within the hub. The created hubs are interconnected and the best practices are transferred to the other hubs and development environments especially organized by VET -providers. The planned technologies are very new but also well tested and extremely flexible to be used in different applications in various sectors. More high-ability people are needed to take benefits from the latest cloud and mobile technologies in various businesses, which makes education of these topics for vocational excellence necessary.
