For public health
in the digital age

We create partnerships for innovation in healthcare


Our vision is to facilitate the digitalisation of healthcare in all its aspects.

The Digital Innovation Hub (DIH) is an ecosystem that serves as a contact point with a range of support services for SMEs in the region and beyond with a focus on healthcare. It provides both access to digital knowledge, technologies, prototyping solutions, testing facilities, and engagement with the innovation ecosystem in the region. We believe that digitalisation is our future.

Connecting science and industry

Olomouc University Hospital, the Science and Technology Park of Palacký University in Olomouc and the Innovation Centre of the Olomouc Region bring together a space where science and the commercial sphere meet. We do not want our research to remain in a drawer. We want our work to spread to small and medium-sized companies in the region, the Czech Republic and Europe. We believe that the future of healthcare, industry and other sectors lies in digitalisation.

Our goal is to connect DIGI2Health to the network of digital innovation hubs and thus enable SMEs in the region to digitise their processes. We are fully aligned with the principles and goals of the Ministry of Health’s eHealth.

About European Digital Innovation Hubs

European Digital Innovation Hubs (EDIHs) are one-stop shops supporting companies and public sector organisations to respond to digital challenges and become more competitive.

EDIHs support companies to improve business/production processes, products, or services using digital technologies by:

  • providing access to technical expertise and testing, as well as the possibility to ‘test before invest’
  • providing innovation services, such as financing advice, training, and skills development that are central to successful digital transformation
  • helping companies tackle environmental issues, in particular the use of digital technologies for sustainability and circularity.

EDIHs combine the benefits of a regional presence with the opportunities available to a pan-European network. This regional presence leaves them well-placed to provide the services local companies need, through the local language and innovation ecosystem. The European coverage of the network facilitates the exchange of best practices across hubs in different countries as well as the provision of specialised services across regions when the required skills are not locally available.
