The Digital Community is primarily focused on addressing the research and innovation topics in the Digital sub cluster of Horizon Europe Cluster 4, ‘Digital, Industry and Space’.
The Digital sub cluster primarily addresses the following four destinations of Cluster 4.
Destination 1 – Climate neutral, circular and digitised production
Global leadership in climate-neutral digital systems and infrastructures (networks, data centres), through innovative production and manufacturing processes and their digitisation, new business models, and green digital technologies.
Destination 3 – World leading data and computing technologies
Globally attractive, secure and dynamic data-agile economy by developing and enabling the uptake of the next-generation computing and data technologies and infrastructures (including space infrastructure and data), enabling the European single market for data with the corresponding data spaces and a trustworthy artificial intelligence Ecosystem
Destination 4 – Digital and emerging technologies for competitiveness and fit for the green deal
Sovereignty in digital technologies and in future emerging enabling technologies by strengthening European capacities in key parts of digital and future supply chains, allowing agile responses to urgent needs, and by investing in early discovery and industrial uptake of new technologies.
Destination 6 – A human-centred and ethical development of digital and industrial technologies
A human-centred and ethical development of digital and industrial technologies, through a two-way engagement in the development of technologies, empowering end-users and workers, and supporting social innovation.
Limerick City and County Council is taking part in a five-year, €24m, pan-European project to create positive energy blocks within cities.
The project is funded by Horizon 2020 under its Smart Cities and Communities call. Now midway through the project, +CityxChange is set to roll out its blueprint for carbon reduction across seven European cities.
