DIZ was present at two international conferences for digital innovation hubs.

Also in May 2023, our colleagues Cristina Baghiu and Ana Ciobanu represented DIZ at the DIH2 and BOWI conferences. We learned about new digitization opportunities that we can bring to the region with the help of the European network and, above all, we were inspired by the services that other European hubs already offer to SMEs and public institutions in their area.

HIZ by DIZ: We launched the first innovative solutions pre-validation program in the region, supported by EIT Health.

Health Innovation Zone (HIZ) is the first program to pre-validate healthtech solutions, developed with the help of experts and mentors from EIT Health and partner Universities: Gh. Asachi Technical University of Iași and Gr.T.Popa Iași University of Medicine and Pharmacy.

You can enroll in this 6-month program if you have a team with an idea at least at the prototype stage and need the support of DIZ mentors and testing facilities.

Don’t have a team but want to contribute to the innovation of the medical system? Become a DIZ expert, tell us how you can help the teams participating in the program with your experience and skills, and we’ll even help you find your place in a team. What do you have to gain? Hands-on experience in the first international program of its kind, innovation, and digitization expert practice within the DIZ ecosystem and, why not, long-term collaboration in other projects.
