Did you receive a Seal of Excellence for your application to the European Digital Innovation Hubs call in Digital Europe Programme?
Some countries are foreseeing to fund additional European Digital Innovation Hubs through operational programmes supported by the European Structural and Investment Funds (ESIF) or the Recovery and Resilience Funds (RRF).
Once your project has been successful in obtaining such (or alternative) funding and you start operating, the Seal of Excellence gives you the possibility to be a full member of the network of European Digital Innovation Hubs. It means you will receive support from the Digital Transformation Accelerator to network with other hubs, and you are able to use the quality label “European Digital Innovation Hub”.
The responsible for European Digital Innovation Hubs in your country will be aware about the possibilities in your country. The European Commission will also inform your country about your Seal of Excellence, and coordinate further with the country representative to optimise your chances to be funded.
