Basque Digital Innovation Hub

BDIH is a connected network providing Basque companies with assets and advanced manufacturing services for training, research, testing and validation of technology.

The network provides SMEs with the technological capabilities they need to rise to the challenges of smart industry, energy and health, and to be able to grow in a more digital and sustainable environment.

If you want to incorporate technology into your project to improve production, prevent cyber attacks or predict customer behaviour, among others, we provide a connected network of over 300 assets and advanced manufacturing services for training, research, testing and validation of technologies: additive manufacturing, flexible robotics, cybersecurity, digital finishing, advanced and sustainable materials, new materials, etc. An offer created to support SMEs when it comes to cutting-edge technologies, which promote their current digital and sustainable strategy, and which are difficult to access individually.

Just tell us what you’re looking for and we’ll create the most efficient plan to digitise your project.
