Improving access to finance for SMEs and Digital Innovation Hubs

This was the second meeting of a series of the Digital Innovation Hubs Working Group meetings to take place until the next High-level governance meeting with Commissioner Mariya Gabriel in summer 2018.

The aim of this second Working Group meeting was to bring together Digital Innovation Hubs, who are part of the European Catalogue of DIHs, to discuss how to finance DIHs and how to improve access to finance for SMEs.

During the day we gave the opportunity to all Digital Innovation Hubs that want to share how they finance their DIHs and which business models they are using, as well as how they support SMEs in finding funding for their business innovations to give a short presentation about it.


The third Working Group meeting of Digital Innovation Hubs will be held on 25 May 2018 in Brussels and will focus on networking and collaboration models for DIHs.
