INFIMO Project

Interconnected and Inclusive Innovation Ecosystems focused on ICT and Mobility (INFIMO) is a Horizon Europe project focused on strategic collaboration between clusters and diverse innovation actors from Estonia, Portugal and Georgia. INFIMO is using information and communication technologies (ICT) for the digital and green transition in various economic sectors aligned with the Industry 5.0 framework (towards Industry 6.0).

The main objectives of the project are:

  1. Establish a strategic partnership involving the most diverse innovation actors from Estonia, Portugal and Georgia to jointly develop their innovation capabilities and facilitate the implementation and drive innovative solutions.
  2. Development of two collaboration models that support the digital and green transition in various economic sectors with the help of ICT:
    • A) A generic collaboration model to support digitization and sustainability in a variety of economic sectors through the use of ICT. The model will be tested in at least 3 sectors.
    • B) An advanced collaboration model that facilitates joint transition and greater competitiveness in the mobility sector, including R&D pilot projects and an open innovation program in which startups/SMEs propose solutions to the challenges of large companies. The model can be adjusted for use in other sectors in the future.
  3. Support the development of science-based products and services and establish Research, Development and Innovation (RD&I) pilots among innovation stakeholders in INFIMO ecosystems focused on the mobility field.
  4. Facilitate greater involvement of innovative women and increase the gender responsiveness of services offered by partners.
  5. Support the exchange of best practices, skills, and knowledge development and mutual learning by the involved networks and various innovation actors.
  6. Establish contacts and pave the way for collaboration with relevant networks and innovation ecosystems in the European Union and associated countries.

The project unites three clusters:

ITL represents a region of strong innovation and connects the project with three major European networks, the European Digital SME Alliance, DIGITALEUROPE, and ITS Nationals. MOBINOV represents a Moderate Innovation region and takes advantage of the project’s outreach to other mobility and automotive clusters in the European Union through the European Automotive Cluster Network. The GIC represents a Modest Innovation region and links the project to other Georgian cluster initiatives and innovation actors in various industrial sectors. The project consortium also includes Estonia’s Baltic Innovation Agency (BIA), a company experienced in innovation management and representative of the Enterprise Europe Network in the project.

Together, the partners will act as a driving force to build strategic collaboration between the ecosystems they represent. They will encourage the involvement of more diverse innovation stakeholders in the countries involved, as well as establish contacts with relevant partners in other countries. Together, the four partners will focus on reducing the innovation divide in the partner countries by facilitating greater engagement and connections between different innovation actors, such as companies of different sizes, RD&I actors, public authorities, investors, social innovators, civil society, and non-governmental organizations.
