Launching Digital Innovation Hub services and regional centres in Latvia
Digital Accelerator of Latvia (DAoL) is one of the two pre-selected European Digital Innovation Hub (EDIH) candidates in Latvia. EDIHs will function as one-stop shops that help public sector institutions and private companies respond to the digital challenges.
By providing access to technical expertise and experimentation, EDIHs will help organisations improve business and production processes, products, or services using digital technologies. They will also provide innovation services, such as financing advice, training, and skills development that are needed for a successful digital transformation.
In the first half of 2021 DAoL has expanded the number of members and partnerhips to provide DIH services in 6 regional centers of Latvia, including Riga, Valmiera, Rezekne, Ventspils, Liepaja and Jelgava. DAoL and its members have launched and tested the following services:
