Description: The subchapter Purpose-driven Digital Innovation Hubs is composed of diverse themes, which will be delivered through different tools. The first theme is the DIH itself in the sense that it is essential to define the identity and activity of the DIH to define a strategy. Therefore, the first contents covered are the purpose, the role and the processes of the DIH – setting the scene -, as well as key business challenges, project management and strategic planning – DIH activity. These contents will be addressed through one hands-on workshop in which participants will define their DIHs and outline an overall action plan addressing key challenges faced by African DIHs based on the results of WP2. After defining the purpose of the DIH, participants are invited to understand the purpose-driven innovation theme through a webinar addressing purpose-driven innovation, managing change and growth opportunities.
