The EDIH online conference (opened by Commissioner T. Breton) is a public event organised as the first yearly European Digital Innovation Hubs conference. Since 2012, the Commission supports Digital Innovation Hub-like activities. From 2016, under the Digitalising European Industry initiative, the Commission has supported the creation of Digital Innovation Hubs (DIH). In 2021, the Commission, with the Member States, is gearing up the support to the digitalisation of Europe's economy and society.
In JRC B3 and the S3P we have been supporting during the last 3 years the territorial aspects of the DIHs initiative and its links with Smart Specialisation Strategies. During the conference we will present our work related with Impact Assessment of the EDIHs and the Future of the DIH Catalogue in respective parallel thematic sessions.
