1. Skills and training 

For SMEs  
By pooling a large number of experts, HDS spreads knowledge, inspire, and engage to increase the ability of SMEs to implement and innovate in AI based service development, cybersecurity and HPC, and thereby also contribute to competitiveness and regional sustainable growth. HDS provides different opportunities within AI and supports how these are implemented in the company’s own business model to accelerate growth and/or streamline operations. The focus is on the core innovative technologies, as well as on business development, including intellectual asset management using intellectual property rights etc.  

For public sector 
Methods for impact assessment and systems requirements analysis are areas with large training needs. Digital training, analysis of work processes linked to digitalization and case-based competence development in change work are all already produced by the partners within HDS. Additional foreseen formats include hosting conferences, seminars, and inspiration days on topics relevant to target groups e.g., digital leadership, AI-based data-driven decision making, agile methodology, data sharing and open data, as well as cybersecurity and risk mitigation.
