BOWI webinar: Role of regions in EDIH strategy and forging corridors in Europe03/31/2021
The BOWI webinar: Role of regions in EDIH strategy and forging corridors in Europe took place on March 31st , 2021, from 12:00-13:00h (EET).
The aim of the event was to open a discussion about the opportunities for establishing collaboration between Digital innovation hubs (DIH) and national and regional authorities to support and accelerate the digital transformation.
Under the “Digital Europe” programme, European DIHs have a key role in the regional development. The purpose of European digital innovation hubs is to facilitate the Industry and public sector towards digital and green transformation. In order to use the full potential and capabilities of DIHs, it`s important to build a sustainable interregional cooperation, which in turn aims to encourage the transfer of knowledge, good practices and experience between the different stakeholders in Europe.
The main objectives of the event are:
- to conduct a strategy for collaboration between the Digital Innovation Hubs;
- identify the role of regional authorities for establishing transregional and European cooperation with DIHs and EDIHs candidates;
- Open a discussion about tools and methods to strengthen EU partnerships, using existing digital innovation hubs and EDIH applicants.
The webinar was attended by nearly 100 people, including representatives of regional and national authorities, regional development agencies and organizations active in supporting innovation and digital transformation of the region and SMEs.
