EUROPEAN AND NATIONAL CONTEXT
European Digital Innovation Hubs (eDIH) provide access to technical expertise and experimentation so that those interested can “test before investing.” It also provides innovation services, funding consulting, training, and skills development for a successful digital transformation.
In the context of the new Multiannual Financial Framework 2021-2027, the European Commission has proposed a new funding program dedicated exclusively to supporting the digital transformation of the European economy and society. The Digital Europe program aims to improve the EU’s international competitiveness through significant investments in developing the Union’s strategic capabilities, supporting the development of critical areas such as artificial intelligence, high-performance computing (HPC), cybersecurity, advanced digital skills, digitalization of public administration and interoperability.
The role of European Digital Innovation Hubs (eDIH) is to ensure that innovative digital solutions, based on new technologies, are integrated into the day-to-day business of companies and public administrations. Thus, digital innovation centers offer the possibility to experiment and test these technologies to implement them according to the specific needs of the field of activity of each company or public institution.
