Facilitating and stimulating the unleashing of innovation potential through the first Pan EU-Africa sustainable network of Digital Innovation Hubs (DIHs) focussing on smart logistic.

Objective

The vision of DIGILOGIC is to boost the cooperation and strategic partnership between European and African Digital Innovation Hubs (DIHs) paving the way for startups, SMEs and innovators to jointly develop smart logistic solutions, in close cooperation with industries and ventures, securing sustainability and success. The motivation that drives the EU-Africa DIGILOGIC project is to facilitate and stimulate the unleashing of the innovation potential within Africa’s young engineers and entrepreneurs. It achieves this through the creation of the first Pan EU-Africa sustainable network of DIHs, focussing on the topic of smart logistics. DIGILOGIC sees the horizontally connecting logistics industry at the converging point of interest for digital innovation for social and business development, a crucial node for Europe’s and Africa’s sustainable prosperity. DIGILOGIC is centered on five DIHs: three DIHs in Europe (DE, FI, IT) and two DIHs in Africa, reaching nine countries (GH, NG, ZM, ZA, KE, MW, ZW, NA, MZ).
Furthermore, DIGILOGIC is unique in that it includes both an online eLearning and collaboration platform for smart logistics and the first practical demonstration of the success of this new federation of smart logistic EU-Africa DIHs, by incorporating four, so-called, “Challenges” that will involve both European and African innovators (startups, ICT professionals, Micro SMEs) in real projects in the logistic sector, to solve existing issues that require new technological solutions. These Challenges (both in EU and AU) will not only demonstrate the benefits of using trained and skilled persons from low- /middle- income African countries (thereby contributing to youth employment), but will set the stage for tighter collaboration between EU-AU Digital Innovation Hubs and contribute to reinforce the international dimension strategic partnership and outreach of the Horizon 2020 ICT Programme 2018-2020 and contributing to the upcoming Horizon Europe.
