The program is no longer accepting applications.

Three ways to apply


REACH consortium has collaborated with the 8 leading European Digital Innovation Hubs to define the cross-sectorial Data Value Chain (DVC) themes to be tackled by participants.


Applications will tackle the challenges defined by the REACH Data Providers according to the needs detected in their market.


A single SME will apply together with their own Data Provider/s (at least one) and propose a novel DVC joint challenge to be solved.
