Landing Hubs

The ENRICH in the USA Landing Hubs provide smart specialization support to EU research and innovation actors interested in transatlantic opportunities in a specific sector and/or technology domain. These Hubs, officially recognized by the ENRICH Network, are integrated with the local/regional ecosystem and are able to introduce EU R&I stakeholders into that ecosystem, so they can best take advantage of business (through Proofs of Concept and Pilotes), as well as investment and other partnership opportunities.

Similar to the ENRICH in the USA Centers, the Hubs' core Ambassadors are university incubators and innovation centers offering soft landing programs and curriculums supported by ENRICH in the USA.

This initial list of Ambassadors were selected by the Network based on their ability to meet core requirements in competently and ethically supporting EU stakeholders with technical, business, regulatory, legal and other challenges when collaborating in the US.

Each Hub represents expertise within their respective industry verticals, to meet the needs of the diverse set of expected EU participants who will receive services at these Hubs which support new transatlantic research partnerships, commercialization of innovative research, and expansion of business opportunities.

The goal of the ENRICH in the USA Hubs, is to represent different locations and specializations across the US, to best serve a large population of EU R&I actors.

Please also visit our ENRICH in the USA Centres page for additional information on other locations within the US, serving broader sector cross-sections and providing additional services, here

In addition to on-demand site visits available with these Hubs (including virtual), many of the Hubs' Ambassadors already provide market development and acceleration services (bootcamps included) to local and foreign entrepreneurs.
