The project EUHubs4data is looking for 18 new driven DIHs to enlarge the current group that composes the European federation of data-driven Innovation Hubs. The project joins forces with the Big Data Value Association (BDVA), and combines in a single open call: (1) BDVA i-Spaces call for labels 2021 and (2) EUHubs4Data call for DIHs.
Candidates are asked to complete a questionnaire to evaluate if they meet the criteria established by BDVA to be recognized as i-Spaces 2021.
