Executive Summary
For the period 2021-2027 the European Commission foresees to invest €9.2 billion in the
first ever Digital Europe programme for increasing the EU’s international competitiveness
through investing in the digital capacity of the European economy. For this new
investment programme to succeed, a solid network of European Digital Innovation Hubs
will be set up. In each European region there will be at least one European Digital
Innovation Hub. The network will be built upon a wide variety of programmes to stimulate
the creation and capacity building of Digital Innovation Hubs (DIHs), in particular with the
assistance of the European Regional Development Funds and the Horizon 2020
programme. Coordination and Support Actions (e.g. I4MS, Smart Anything Everywhere,
etc.), Interreg projects (KETGATE, S34Growth), initiatives under macro-regional
strategies and the S3 thematic partnerships are experimenting with Digital Innovation
Hubs’ collaborations across Europe.
