Walhub logo

The MecaTech Cluster participated in the creation of the WalHub project, the European Digital Innovation Hub (EDIH). In collaboration with 8 Walloon partners, including AGORIA, the SIRRIS, MULTITEL, CENAERO and CETIC research centres, and the Idelux intermunicipal association, this project financed by the European Commission and Wallonia aims to accelerate the digital transformation of Walloon manufacturing companies.

Over an initial renewable period of 3 years, with a total budget of €3.4m, EDIH WalHub is focusing on the rapid adoption of 4 key technologies: Artificial Intelligence, IoT Technologies, High Performance Computing (HPC) and Cybersecurity.

By offering a range of services, including technology demonstrators, Living Labs, and access to European funding, EDIH WalHub supports the "Digital Wallonia" vision for a dynamic digital transformation of Wallonia's manufacturing companies.

Gemstone logo

GEMSTONE is a Eurocluster project dedicated to Green Manufacturing.

It is coordinated by the CIMES cluster (France) and brings together Clust-ER MECH (Italy), Metal Processing Cluster (Poland), Green Tech Latvia (Latvia), POOL-Net (Portugal) and the MecaTech Cluster.

The aim is to support manufacturing companies in their green transition, through awareness-raising, coaching/orientation and financing initiatives. 5 key sectors are particularly targeted: aerospace/defence, energy, agribusiness/agriculture, materials and mobility.

GEMSTONE directly finances SMEs (tech providers and/or end-users) in a variety of ways: financing innovation projects, demonstrators or PoCs (GreenInnov & GreenAdopt), training (GreenTrain) and internationalisation (GreenExplore). These last two calls remain open until December 2024.
