Innovation Hub Catania - IHCT
The nonprofit organization JO Education is the founder of the Innovation Hub Catania – IHCT that promotes smart cities and the implementation of the digital transformation ecosystem.
It is a bridge among business, society and research.
The main aim of IHCT is to create an ecosystem focused on innovation, joining together talents, companies and other actors capable of pushing towards a smart development of society.
As an informal aggregator of talents, our innovation hub aims to raise awareness of the importance of digital transformation and expand the local community of innovators.
An ecosystem focused on innovation
The spirit behind the innovation hub is the one of encouraging the alliance between technological innovation and the labour market by using digital tools and the presence in the territory.
The concrete research-business collaboration aims at developing new skills, which involves research centres, local authorities, start-up incubators, investors, industrial players and universities.
Technological innovation in Catania
The digital transformation, the development of new professions, the investment in digital training and culture are the sectors on which the challenge for the future is played.
The decision to commit and invest resources is crucial for the competitive capacity of a territory.
From the close interconnection between universities and businesses, between public and private, it may and must be born an ecosystem that produces widespread innovation with a view of Industry 4.0.
JO Education rides the wave of the digital transformation by “recruiting” talents in the innovation hub to become an engine of innovation in the territory.
In JO Education we believe that the whole society will be inexorably influenced by the entry of intelligent machines, that will changes working and living time.
