The main objective of DIGI-GRENT project is to create an innovative & international space to improve the knowledge and the skills of academic institutions that focus on markets and start-ups, trying to reduce the barriers.
In order for the European Union (EU) to be successful at implementing and expanding open innovation as one of the main driver of its socio-economic growth, higher education institutions (HEIs) must be able to produce independent, creative, entrepreneurial individuals, who understand multidisciplinary challenges of the socio-economic environment, and as a result can contribute to open innovation in convergence with technological growth & enterprise digitalization.
EU’s success in the global competition is heavily dependent on the ability of the economy to produce innovative enterprises with high growth potential that can give stimulus to the actors of the socio-economic environment. Creating a common framework and a unified entrepreneurial ecosystem across the EU requires a core engine of open innovation and co-creation among all the involved stakeholders in order to decrease the inequality among the regions of the EU, and that is what this project is aiming to. Achieving an empowered society that co-creates together with the market will provide a much proper context for growth, as society is the main driver of growth.
