What’s a European Digital Innovation Hub?

European Digital Innovation Hubs (EDIHs) are one-stop shops that support companies to respond to digital challenges and become more competitive. Because they are present at the regional level, they know the needs and problems the companies face. Through the EDIHs network, they facilitate the exchange of best practices available and provide the needed skills that are not locally available. With the help of EDIHs, companies receive access to innovative services and training that support the development of digital transformation.

The main activities done by EDIHs are:

Objectives for the period 2021 - 2028
