Penel discussion – Understanding the role of EDIH in digitalization and innovations of European industries

November 29 | 15:30 – 16:10 (EET)

With an ambitious mandate for European Digital Innovation Hubs – to serve as one-stop shops supporting companies to respond to digital challenges and become more competitive –  EDIH programs are about to be launched in the EU. However, for many policymakers the confusion still remains, how to use this program to meet real needs in the most suitable way.

From a practical EDIH activity implementation point of view, we can see huge differences among EU regions. This panel discussion will cover the impact on the economy, regional and EU interests, as well as ways to collaborate and measure the success  of the most ambitious and desperately needed EU-wide digitalization support program.

Maurits Butter, senior orchestrating expert at TNO, will share the DIHNET findings and recommendations for policy makers related to EDIH interregional collaboration.
