The Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science of the Babeș-Bolyai University is partner in the TDIH project co-financed by the European Commission through the Digital Europe Program

On Thursday, November 24th, 2022 the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science of the Babeș-Bolyai University participated, as a partner, in the TDIH project ( at the Digitization Exploratorium – Innovative Validation Hackathon event. The event took place at the Regional Center of Excellence for Creative Industries (CREIC) between 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.

The TDIH project, co-financed by the European Commission through the Digital Europe Program, runs for 3 years, with the possibility of extension for another four years. The project is aimed at SME beneficiaries who want to transform their company from a digital point of view. The coordinator of the project is Transilvania IT Cluster, and in addition to UBB, other partners are also: Technical University of Cluj-Napoca, UMF Iuliu Hațieganu Cluj-Napoca, National Institute for R&D of Isotopic and Molecular Technologies and the Hygia Consult company.

Within the TDIH project, the goal of the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science at UBB is to provide training and skills development services for SME representatives in the main IT fields: Artificial Intelligence, Big Data, Cloud Computing, Cyber ​​Security, Web Intelligence & SEO.

Specialists from the faculty in these areas of innovation and digitization will have meetings with representatives of SMEs from the TDIH project to identify the best digital solutions adapted to the specifics of each company.

A competition will be held for the selection of the 87 beneficiaries every six months. To begin with, during the Digitization Exploratorium event, the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science held introductory presentations with the services offered, networking discussions at the UBB stand and speed-dating sessions with potential beneficiaries. Among the topics addressed to SMEs we mention:

  • how can Artificial Intelligence transform the activities in your business?​
  • how can Big Data techniques be used to strengthen the competitive advantages of your business in the market? ​
  • how can a virtual assistant (chatbot) support communication with your customers? ​
  • how can your business’ products or service offering be customized to your business’s customer preferences while improving your bottom line?​
  • which internal processes of your business can you digitize and optimize?​
  • how can AI and HPC techniques be used to achieve a surplus of quality in production processes or to reduce as much as possible, through automation, the sources of human mistakes/errors? ​
  • how can you reduce your costs with the computing technique or with the human resource that manages it and how do you prevent the moral depreciation of the computing infrastructure?

We hope for the most interesting and fruitful collaborations with the industrial environment!
