Our Model

Our Approach

ahedd’s mission is centred around the development, orchestration and sustainment of an open digital innovation ecosystem that is cross-thematic (AI, Big Data Management, IoT) and seeks to maximise cross-dimensional, strategic impact.

Our Digital Innovation Hub (DIH) focuses on achieving and maintaining demonstrable contribution to society, to economy, to knowledge and to people across the different stages of the ahedd life-cycle. ahedd has identified four generic impact categories that aim to reach the maximum level of impact across time.

The Hub will achieve this by acting as a catalyst in the ecosystem through the offering of a variegating set of services for business and data incubation as well as bespoke, on-demand services tailored to the needs of companies and corporations that reach out to ahedd.

Our Innovation Model

ahedd adopts the Quadruple Helix model for networking, collaboration and co-creation. By bringing together multidisciplinary stakeholders (government, industry, academia, and civil society) across different levels (local, regional, national, European and international), ahedd facilitates the creation/co-creation of shared value, that benefits all participants in its digital innovation ecosystem.

Collaboration is central in the ahedd’s strategic activities, which are centred around the development, orchestration and sustainment of a value creating, open digital innovation ecosystem that is cross-thematic (AI, Big Data Management, IoT) and seeks to maximise cross-dimensional, strategic impact.
