Digital Innovation Hubs

Digital Innovation Hubs (DIH) are orchestrators of the R&I activities in specific geographical regions. They serve as a one-stop shop for SMEs in their path to digital transformation. DIHs are key for overcoming entry barriers for SMEs into the data-driven economy.


Are you a DIH willing to work with leading innovators in the data economy?

In REACH, DIH’s play a key role in enabling incubated organizations to improve their performance and increase their competitiveness through the development of new commercial value-chains. DIHs can help break the data silos in the European industry by stimulating innovation where value is driven by data sharing. Finally, DIH most act as brokers among data providers and solution providers across industrial domains.
