Experts and enthusiasts from across Europe will debate today, 1st July, many questions about Digital Innovation Hubs. The European Commission has organised a workshop in Brussels to review "what role will Digital Innovation Hubs play in the new Digital Europe Programme? How will funding work? How can collaboration between hubs be fostered?" during the 7th meeting of the Working Group on Digital Innovation Hubs.

According to the information provided in the Digital Single Market official website, the Digital Europe Programme plans to "invest €9.2 billion to align the EU's budget 2021-2027 with increasing digital challenges". 

The ERNACT network of regions have a deep interest in Digital Innovation Hubs and Colm Mc Colgan, General Manager at ERNACT and Emilija Stojmenova ERNACT partner from the Laboratory for Telecommunications at the University of Ljubljana (Slovenia) will attend the meeting. H
aving developed a network of over 25 Digital Hubs working togetherERNACT's Slovenian partners are very experienced in creating awareness and providing services to grow digital competencies, share digital experience and case studies locally, regionally and internationally. "This meeting will give us further details on future funding opportunities for hubs and it will be crucial to foster collaboration, not only between the ERNACT partner cities and regions, but also with others interested in interregional cooperation", concludes Colm Mc Colgan. 

"Digital Innovation Hubs will have both a local and European dimension - Member States, therefore, will be expected to co-invest and participate in selecting Digital Innovation Hubs to be funded under the Digital Europe programme", they add from the European Commission.
