Independent Software Vendors (ISVs): SMEs, mid-caps and big companies from the Member States and associated States are entitled to become 3rd parties. These ISVs provide the cloudified or to be clodufied software for solving the challenge of the end user.
Engineering consultants: SMEs and mid-caps from the Member States and associated States are entitled to become 3rd parties. These engineering consultants provide the domain expertise to solve the challenge of the end user with the software provided by the ISV. In some cases, a single company may play both roles: one of the ISV and one of the engineering consultant.
Research organizations from the Member States and associated States are entitled to become 3rd parties.
These organizations may contribute their domain expertise to solve the challenge of the end user. Alternatively, they may also support with their skills the extension of the software to be able to solve the end user’s challenge or to cloudify the software. The software may be provided by an ISV, the research organization themselves or an Open Source community.
Any organization from the Member States and associated States that will act as a Digital Innovation Hub is entitled to become a 3rd party.
