Introduction: BOWI (Boosting Widening Digital Innovation Hubs)

May 18, 2020



Latvian IT Cluster is a partner in European project BOWI (Boosting Widening Digital Innovation Hubs), financed under Horizon 2020 program call for Digitizing and transforming European Industry and services: digital innovation hubs and platforms.

The overall aim of the project is to create a DIHs widening network that supports the collaboration between new DIHs (proto-hubs) in regions where SAE and I4MS technologies are underrepresented and well-established DIHs that are highly experienced in these technologies (mature hubs).


The overall objective of BOWI is to create a DIH widening network that supports the collaboration of new DIHs (proto-hubs) and mature hubs.




The network will:

  • Strengthen proto-hubs by carrying out actual experiments and facilitating the collaboration between proto-hubs and mature hubs;

  • Ensuring sustainability of BOWI network by developing a blended financing accelerator and membership model,

  • Creating the BOWI community, initiating the participation of proto-hubs, matures hubs and regional stakeholders and investors.

Latvian IT Cluster is participating in the network as a pioneer proto-hub in the project, in order to provide feedback on what could be improved in the program.
