Inclusion of the Internet of Things Digital Innovation Hub (IoT DIH) into the DIHs for CyberPhysical Systems network (DIH4CPS, Fostering DIHs for Embedding Interoperability in Cyber-Physical Systems of European SMEs), implying improvement of the IoT DIH services and network, as well as innovation training and transfer activities with SMEs and startups. The objective of the IoT - DIH and the innovation-driven organizations involved is to help companies (specially SMEs and start-ups) become more competitive by adopting IoT technologies in their business processes, products, and services. The IoT - DIH has been created to develop ground-breaking projects with the most advanced technologies, related to CPS, to promote new products and services, designed by combining innovative techniques from a wide range of disciplines: Artificial Intelligence, Advanced IoT, Disruptive ICT, Edge Computing, Fog Computing, Cloud Computing, Blockchain, Internet of Value, Industry 4.0, Smart Cities, Smart Homes, Smart Grids, Connected Vehicle, Big Data, Machine Learning, Deep Learning, Reinforcement Learning, Social Computing, Natural Language Processing, or Linked Open Data. The IoT - DIH is composed of 40+members and 50+ partners of the larger network, and they include technological centers and universities, companies, and public authorities. The board is made of AIR Institute (coordinator and technical secretariat), AETICAL (coordination council), FES (coordination council) and ICE (coordination council). The IoT - DIH provides comprehensive services in innovation transfer for SMEs, start-ups, and other actors of the business fabric, all related to Cyber-Physical Systems, concretely in the areas of IoT and related technologies, such as Artificial Intelligence, Blockchain and Distributed Ledger Technologies, or Big Data. These services include technical advice, training, access to funding opportunities, access to laboratories and equipment, or events for the promotion of IoT technologies. The inclusion of the IoT - DIH in the DIH4CPS network will be mutually beneficial, adding cross-border scope and technological expertise in IoT to the DIH4CPS, and enlargement of the network and access to other technologies for the IoT - DIH.
