Boosting Digital Innovation in Europe by Connecting Digital Innovation Hubs and SMEs in the Discovery of Advanced Digital Solutions

Activity Description

BOWI stands for Boosting Widening Digital Innovation Hubs. BOWI aims to build a digital innovation hub (DIH) network based on experience and practice sharing. A network that will support companies in turning their most innovative projects to life, aid investors in discovering the leaders of the digital revolution, and help development agencies understand the needs of the industry.
The BOWI project is aligned with the European Commission’s Smart Anything Everywhere (SAE) initiative. This initiative aims to support European companies through advanced digitalization solutions that should be available to any company regardless of their location.
Key elements of the SAE initiative are the digital innovation hubs (DIHs) – one-stop shops for companies seeking to improve their business or service with digital solutions. These hubs bring together companies that offer state-of-the-art solutions and take up the challenge of finding the answers to complex problems. BOWI project will explore the best solutions for DIH cooperation in the form of technology transfer experiments.
During these experiments, we will connect established and developing DIHs with SMEs and mid-caps that require concrete digitalization solutions. The business model at the core of DIH cooperation will set the base for the BOWI network.
