Scope & results

DIH aims at giving the local innovation ecosystem a boost, involving manufacturers, academia, entrepreneurs, associations, and public sector in the process.

Our hub aims at creating real business impact for the regional innovation ecosystem involving corporations, academia, entrepreneurs, associations and further relevant stakeholders, activating the process of digital innovation development and adoption by local manufacturers while establishing a new source of technology for the European SMEs

DIH aims to use public grants, including both national and international programmes. The need for additional funding to facilitate growth and development of the DIH can be financed by private and public investment. Even though we do not expect to attract funding from Ukraine during the first stages, in 3-5 years, after several successful cases, the hub may start to receive money from both sources. In the meanwhile, DIH will seek to attract funding through available grants schemes.

Based on the developed business plan the DIH has a formed partnership, environment to work with and a vector where to move
