HUBiquitous is an Innovation Action aiming at creating a joint Africa-Europe Startup & Innovation Ecosystem for long-term collaborations and partnerships. The project has the ambition to increase the technology level and capacity building of 30 local DIHs/TechHubs in 5 African countries.
The project proposes highly innovative concepts called Innovation Enablers (i.e. Solution Lab, Application Business Box and MeetHub online platform). The purpose of these enablers is to provide technical (e.g. IoT, AI and BigData disruptive technologies) as well as entrepreneurial development skills to DIHs and startups/entrepreneurs. Thanks to these Innovation Enablers, the project will further demonstrate and build the local innovation capacity through 3 programs: (i) Talent program, building digital skills for local talents, (ii) Accelerator program, creating innovative applications and services and (iii) Community program, developing the Africa-Europe start-up and innovation communities.
’s mission is to establish and improve the collaboration across Europe between startups, corporates and universities by connecting them through 3 core results:
- the first micro-credential (a modular, flexible format stemming from MOOCs) Pilot world-wide on corporate entrepreneurship for 30 selected entrepreneurs, managers, students;
- the first MOOC on corporate entrepreneurship (1.500+ entrepreneurs, managers, students);
- and a unique corporate entrepreneurship Toolbox (guidelines, tools for 5.000+ users) to facilitate the collaboration between the 3 target groups.
