The DIH Academy will provide counselling to 30 digital innovation centres
Over the next 9 months, the DIHELP academy is going to train the digital innovation centres selected in the call that had been open to all the EU and H2020 associated countries.
More than 80 applications were received from 20 different countries and finally 30 centres were selected (among which was our IoT DIH). The selection committee was made up of innovation experts and was supervised by the European Commission.
The DIH Academy will coach participants in business development, financing and management, teaching them how to develop sustainable business models in each sector, and offers a series of resources to improve the development of innovation projects.
During the first 3 days of the course, which began on March 22, the representatives of the selected centres attended numerous conferences, interactive work sessions at which they exchanged project ideas and debated with their colleagues.
In addition, DIH will offer individualized coaching, two days of workshops adapted to the needs of each centre and a one-day regional workshop that is going to encourage other nearby centres to participate.
DIH also provides the participating centres with a virtual office, which includes e-learning, on-demand coaching and webinars.
