The digital sector represents a cross-cutting area that sees information and communication technologies as a central development of the corporate value chains (whether small or large): big data, internet of things, the cloud, industry 4.0, artificial intelligence and cybersecurity.

The Emilia-Romagna system is highly focused on the productive side and is extremely dynamic from the point of view of the search for innovative and competitive solutions.

In Emilia-Romagna the opportunities for study, work and business in the field of Service Innovation and Big Data are strongly interrelated thanks to the presence of networks of different areas (Higher Technology Network, Technopolis, Clust-ER, and Startup) that are coordinated by ART-ER, in its role as "accelerator of innovation" in the region.

The regional ecosystem of research and innovation can be divided into thematic centers, for each of which it is possible to identify the laboratories of the Higher Technology Network, which are organizations capable of exploiting the results of research including: economic and social purposes; the Clust-ER; and private business associations, research centers, training institutions that share skills, ideas and resources to support the competitiveness of the sector they are managing.
