WIDENING DIGITAL INNOVATION HUBS

WIDENING DIGITAL INNOVATION HUBS

DIH-World aims to harmonise and widen the landscape of European DIHs across all of Europe to address the “digital innovation hubs divide”.

DIH-World aims to accelerate the uptake of advanced digital technologies by European manufacturing SMEs in all sectors by supporting them in building sustainable competitive advantages and reaching global markets. DIH-World strengthens the capacities of regional DIHs, particularly in underrepresented regions across Europe.

As intermediaries of successful local SME digital transformation, DIH-World aims at providing DIHs, access to harmonised tools, well proven technologies, effective methodologies, sound knowledge, smart investment sources, rich training assets and overall a vibrant innovation environment.

The final aim is to accelerate the matureness of DIHs and the development of their collaboration capabilities, and avoid a DIH divide due to lack of access to technologies, skills, networks, investment and infrastructures with special emphasis in underrepresented regions; so they can capitalise and leverage on the European DIHs Networks their resources and facilities for the benefit of their local SMEs.

DIH-World will address the digital innovation hubs divide

Innovation Hubs are emerging all over Europe. More than 500 DIHs have been catalogued, of which 300 are fully operational and the rest are in development. However, in terms of geographical coverage, there are significant disparities among Europe’s regions and Member States. Less than 20% of the catalogued DIHs are located in Eastern Europe, while almost half of them are based in Germany, the Netherlands, France and Spain. Countries such as Bulgaria, Greece, Hungary, Poland, Portugal, Romania and Slovakia are under-represented – resulting in a “digital innovation hubs divide” – similar to the digital divide.
