DigiFed Generic Experiments Communities (GEC) are designed to test new collaborations between research centers and SMEs and Mid-Caps as well as develop new co-financing mechanisms between European and regional funding to foster European industry digitalization.

The objective of the Generic Experiment is to build communities of SMEs and Mid-Caps around a specific technical topic (GEC Topic) proposed by a DigiFed research centre (the GEC Owner).

GE Communities should aim to involve a group of about 10 European companies together with the experts from the research center.
