Use services of the European Digital Innovation HUB for Liberec and Hradec Králové regions

The countries of the European Union are aware of the role they play in supporting the digitisation of their own economies. The European Commission therefore launched the Digital Europe programme for the period 2021-2027, the fundamental building block of which is the EDIH network of European digital hubs. The mission of those hubs is to connect to advanced digital knowledge in the region (research centres, universities, etc.) and in Europe (partner hubs) and to subsequently support the transfer of such knowledge to small and medium-sized enterprises and public administration.

Our EDIH Northeast Bohemia is one of 6 EDIHs in the Czech Republic and offers services to small and medium enterprises (up to 499 employees) and public organisations primarily from Liberec and Hradec Králové regions. You can find here at one place the expert consultancy, possibility to test and implement digital technologies, services and education on the digitisation topic or help with grant management. EDIH Northeast connects research centres and universities, where concrete digital technologies are worked with and developed, with companies and public institutions under the EDIH Northeast Bohemia brand. We offer support and expert consultancy on digitisation from the EDIH Northeast consortium members – Technical University in Liberec, VÚTS, University of Hradec Králové, Aricoma, National Cluster Association and grant management – Regional Development Agency and Centre for Investment, Development and Innovation.

To attract the best. We bring together top research centres, universities, development organisations, and the umbrella association of Czech clusters. We extend our reach into neighbouring regions.

To offer a wide range of services. You choose depending on how far advanced you are. From audit through hi-tech to grant management. Everything under the one roof.

To connect and educate. We already arrange education events, networking, matchmaking, and business incubation. We believe in the power of sharing our knowledge.

To build on real foundations. Our partners already provide a number of services. At the digital innovation hub, however, we piece them together as part of a comprehensive portfolio for your company or organisation.

Digital technologies make you more competitive. There are areas in which they can be applied throughout a company or organisation, they streamline processes and raise the quality of products or services. We will provide you with a full service at all stages of digitisation, from idea to results. We identify the options, come up with a solution, and test it all out.

For companies and public organisations that want to address current challenges with the introduction of digital technologies, irrespective of how advanced they are in terms of digitisation.

We are fully aware of the power of education, whether within the broader context or within the more specific context of modern digital technologies. We therefore organise education events that focused on digital skills, from novice level to advanced.

For all stakeholders in the innovation ecosystem, start-ups, companies, public organisations, academic and commercial research institutes.

We develop the innovation ecosystem at regional, national, and European level. We act as an active intermediary in connecting companies and public organisations that need new technological solutions to companies that already have modern solutions ready for application in practice.

For all stakeholders in the innovation ecosystem, start-ups, companies, public organisations, academic and commercial research institutes.

We offer assistance in looking for and processing grant calls for the digitisation of companies and organisations announced at regional, national, and European level.

For companies and public organisations that have decided to digitise, that have ideas or specific plans, and that are now looking for ways to use public resources to cover part of the cost.

The EDIH Northeast consortium is mainly made up of entities from the Liberec and Hradec Králové regions, under the leadership of ARR, the Regional Development Agency. We also work with partners in Germany and Poland, our common goal is to build the European digital innovation hub in the region.
