The robotic technologies, then, will constitute the initial “technological seed” on which an innovative ICT technology service network will be constituted at European level with the final goal of feeding professional S&R teams/associations with effective ICT technologies by creating a business opportunity and contributing to address several shortcomings of current operations. Technological Hubs (TH) located in strategic positions on the territory and directly linked to the S&R professional teams characterize the network. The teams will be involved as advanced-users to co-develop and test the model with dedicated options for revenue sharing to c
ompensate their contribution. This model directly implement all three components of Social Innovation as defined at the EU level by meeting specific social needs, strengthening social relations and form new collaborations. The TH act as pivots in which the technology is guarded on the territory and dispensed to local S&R teams (which are the many final end-users operating in that territory) on emergency, and around which local communities/associations engaged in S&R activity gravitate, by providing feedback for technology update, ideas for new developments, benefiting from services related to the technology adoption, and helping the growth of the initiative by stimulating new hubs.
