As part of the EU project AI DIH Network, 30 Digital Innovation Hubs (DIHs) based in 19 EU countries and Norway with focus on Artificial Intelligence were selected to take part in the mentoring and coaching program run by PwC in consortium with CARSA and Innovalia. Selected DIHs will receive mentoring and coaching on business development, financing and innovation management. The ultimate goal is to develop a blueprint for cross-border collaboration of DIHs involved in the program based on the assessment of their business models, common systems, collaborations and governance structures.

A total number of 150 applications from 27 different Member States and three Horizon 2020 associated countries (Serbia, Switzerland and Norway) were submitted, among which 3 applications were from Croatia. As the only DIH from Croatia CROBOHUB DIH was selected to participate in the program.

Mentoring and coaching program started with a Kick-off Meeting in Rome (Italy) on the 19-20 of March 2019, attended by CROBOHUB manager dr. sc. Davorka Moslavac Forjan, and will end in December with the signature of a Cooperation Agreement among (at least) 10 hubs.
