Innovation ecosystem


European Digital Innovation Hubs (eDIHs) act as facilitators, bringing together industries, businesses, and administrations in need of new technological solutions with businesses, startups, and SMEs that have market-ready solutions.

The Innovation Ecosystem service within an eDIH provides access to a digital innovation network at both regional and national, as well as European levels. Digital Innovation Zone (DIZ) can be seen as a network of networks, aiming to facilitate contact between organizations in need of digitization (SMEs & public institutions in manufacturing and healthcare) and the right solution providers.

What if I don't know exactly what my company's digitization needs are?

We have an online tool to help you identify your company’s level of digitization. At the end of the test, you’ll have the results for each digital dimension and the ability to compare yourself with similar entities in your industry.

After completing this self-assessment, we will help you define your short, medium, and long-term digitization needs and assist you in finding the best solutions!
