Future and shape of the EU DIH ecosystem – the vision of DIHNET.EU

Nov 10, 2021

The European Digital Innovation Hub ecosystem has rapidly evolved in the last years. DIHNET.EU network has been a witness and a contributor to some of those changes with its thought leadership and community building during its lifetime as a European Union’s funded project.

On the 26th of October, DIHNET hosted a virtual event for presenting the lessons learned from the last 3 years and discussing with the audience the future and shape of the EU DIH ecosystem. Anna-Puig Centelles, Project Officer at HaDEA and Ruud Baartmans, DIHNET’s project coordinator, opened the event that saw more than 290 stakeholders from innovation hubs, networks, clusters, industry, research, member states and regions.

“DIHNET is arriving at the end as an EU-funded project, but not to the end of its lifetime because there is an important legacy.”
