On October 31, 2022, the kick-off meeting dedicated to the largest digital transformation project in the region has taken place.

Since 2019, the IMAGO-MOL Cluster is one of the members of the largest digital transformation initiative in the North-East Region, Digital Innovation Zone (DIZ). DIZ is a Digital Innovation Hub (eDIH), a One-Stop-Shop structure that supports companies in a region to become more competitive by improving processes, products and services using digital technologies.

So in October 2022 we started the digital transformation of the North-East Region: ˝DIGITAL INNOVATION ZONE EDIH – MANUFACTURING & SMART HEALTH for better business, life and health in the North East Romania region˝(eDIH-DIZ) financed with the Digital Europe Program ( DIGITAL) and the Operational Program Smart Growth, Digitization and Financial Instruments (POCIDIF) with a budget of 4 million Euros.

Partners in the project are the Technical University “Gh. Asachi” Iasi (coordinator), the North-East Regional Development Agency, the University of Medicine and Pharmacy “Grigore T. Popa”, Grapefruit, WebMagnat, the Imago-Mol Cluster with its two associated members: RomSoft and Strongbytes Consulting, Iceberg, the “Atelierul de Idei” company and the Digital Innovation Zone Association.

eDIH-DIZ offers support services and assistance for SMEs and public institutions from the production and health sectors, in the digital transformation process by integrating technologies that can optimize production, reduce emissions and waste, increase competitive advantages and bring new services and products on the market, while having an overall positive impact on society. At the same time, these companies and institutions will have access to the European eDIH network, a consolidated system where they can identify technological solutions, suitable partners and know-how.
