Digital Innovation Hub
for Saxony-Anhalt

The Elbfabrik of the Fraunhofer IFF uses its deep regional roots and its anchoring in a strong regional network as a central hub for digitalization activities in Saxony-Anhalt.

  • Material Support – for relevant initiatives in the regions

  • Own Initiatives – for strengthening ties between different stakeholders

  • EU-Wide Network – for companies to access competences in other regions

In 2018 the Elbfabrik was named the European Digital Innovation Hub in Saxony-Anhalt. With the DIHs, the European Commission created a network of competence centres to assist companies with the digital transformation. They are intended to be the first point of contact, especially for SMEs, and provide opportunities to experiment with the new technologies.
