The project activities are intended for the private and public sectors in  Adriatic Croatia, with networking and synergistic cooperation throughout Croatia and with other EDIHs in the European Union. The purpose is to encourage the development of an innovation ecosystem that includes entrepreneurs, employers’ associations, support institutions, the educational sector, the public sector, and policymakers. Activities include:

Test Before Invest (TBI) activities which consists of the Challenge Lab, the Innovation Lab, and the Transformation Lab. TBI includes digital maturity assessment, demonstration activities, assessments and simulations for digital transformation, support for integrating and adapting different technologies, testing and experimentation with digital technologies, and technology transfer.

Digital skills and training activities include informal activities, lifelong learning programs, and practical courses designed and directed according to the specific needs of users.

Digitization support activities purpose is to identify and select relevant candidates for skills testing activities and adapt TBI tasks to the specific needs of each user. These include digital maturity assessments and digital innovation and transformation bootcamps.

Support for the innovation ecosystem and networking, i.e., the creation of an innovation ecosystem in Adriatic Croatia that will inform, motivate, encourage, and enable the user to start the digital transformation process through cooperation with stakeholders (such as other EDIHs across Europe, industrial clusters and regional support organizations business, as well as through the transfer of knowledge between EDIH Adria users and the scientific community).

The project is co-financed by the European Union according to the Grant Agreement no. 101083838 and the National Recovery and Resilience Plan of the Republic of Croatia 2021-2026.
