On the initiative of the digital association Bitkom, the Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy (BMWi) has appointed 12 excellence locations throughout Germany as Digital Innovation Hubs (de:hub). As part of this initiative, the Smart Systems Hub (SSH) Dresden has been directly involved in digitization "Made in Germany" since 2017. In the middle of the microelectronics heart of Europe, the SSH unites the comprehensive Saxon expertise in the key areas of hardware, software and connectivity in a network of over 450 partners. This way, the best conditions for applicable IoT system solutions from one source and for companies of all sizes are created.
