About this programme

This cluster will try to stimulate European growth in the key areas of digital, industry & space  and make sure most of its future production (entire value chain) will be happening in the EU so the member states become less dependent of third countries. Increased sustainability of the delivered products is at the heart of these efforts.

As a result, actions under this cluster will support key enabling technologies that are strategically important for Europe’s industrial future. They have selected 6 focus areas or destinations that reflect these strategic domains:

  1. Climate neutral circular and digitized production
  2. Increased autonomy in key strategic value chains for resilient industry
  3. World leading data and computing technologies
  4. Digital and emerging technologies for competitiveness and fit for the Green Deal
  5. Open strategic autonomy in developing, deploying and using global space-based infrastructures, services, applications and data
  6. A human-centered and ethical development of digital and industrial technologies.

AVIA-GIS - Software Technologies for a Healthier World

Avia-GIS is a Belgian innovative SME established in 2001. They have built research and public authority trust over the past 19 years and developed a unique, disruptive software suite - VECMAP® - that supports society to overcome one of its important health threats, the spreading of Pests of Public Health importance.

With the help of a Horizon 2020 SME Instrument Phase 2 project, they will be able to add Integrated Pest Management functionalities and go to the market. With the grant, that was an essential component of their second investment round, Avia-GIS aims at raising its revenue from the current 2 M€ to 14.2 M€ in 2024, and increase the headcount from 15 to 58.
