HUBCAP will provide a one-stop-shop for European SMEs wanting to join the Cyber-Physical System (CPS) revolution. It builds on seven established Digital Innovation Hubs (DIHs) in seven European countries, each deeply embedded in its regional digital innovation ecosystem, and offering specialist expertise, experimental capabilities, and focused application domain knowledge in CPS Engineering.

From this base, HUBCAP will create a growing and sustainable pan-European network that will offer SMEs opportunities to undertake experiments, seek investment, and access expertise and training. This will be enabled by a cloud-based open collaboration platform with a ‘sandbox’ capability to help potential users trial new CPS design technology before investment.
