With the roll-out of Digital Europe programme, a new generation of Digital Innovation Hubs (to be called European) will be funded to speed-up the digital transformation of SMEs, mid-caps and public sector organisations across the EU. The expected progress in digital maturity of each EDIH recipient will be measured through a new Digital Maturity Assessment tool that will be put at the disposal of the EDIH community by the Commission, and whose adoption by all grantees will be mandatory in order to ensure proper comparability and aggregation of data at regional/national/EU level. This session will present in detail the almost-final questionnaires that the tool will implement, with a view to collect feedback from stakeholders prior to finalising them.
It is expected that all European Digital Innovation Hubs will capture the innovations coming out of their activities, through the Innovation Radar. It will also be explained how it should be done.
