On 15-16 September, the new project REACH - Next Generation Data Incubator was officially launched. REACH is funded by the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 and was born out of the successful efforts of the EDI – European Data Incubator project, coordinated by the University of Deusto.
Two Deusto research units, the MoreLab Research Group (Faculty of Engineering) and Deusto Innovation and Entrepreneurship Centre take part in the REACH incubation programme, together with 10 core partners and 9 data providers.
The REACH project aims to accelerate data-driven innovation in Europe, towards the vision of the Common European Data Space and European Data Market. It will establish an innovation support mechanism and a multi-stakeholder ecosystem that will facilitate the experimentation of secured and trusted data-fuelled solutions which utilize proprietary, often multi-stakeholder, industrial and personal data. REACH will go beyond EDI, not only by connecting data corporations with European innovators, but also by engaging Digital Innovation Hubs in the conception of high potential data value-chains and value-added services.
The highly versatile and experienced consortium will put together their knowledge, networks and key assets to facilitate the development of 100+ data-driven business ideas. It will create a fertile ground for startups and SMEs to solve real-life challenges of large corporations.
