Empowering Local Solutions for Global Impact
In 2023, InnovationQuarter launched Digitalzh, a collaborative initiative with the Province of South Holland, Technical University of Delft, European Union, and the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate in the Netherlands.
Digitalzh goes beyond technological advancement, fostering solutions at local, regional, national, and global levels. Our collaboration with industry partners strengthens digital transformation, leading to growth and innovation both locally and internationally. As a regional European Digital Innovation Hub, we facilitate connections between companies and innovators across Europe.
Embracing the theme ‘Bringing Regional Digital Solutions to Market’, we participate in events like the startup-focused 4YFN during the prominent global connectivity event, Mobile World Congress (MWC23).
Participating in events like 4YFN at MWC, Digitalzh/InnovationQuarter showcase innovations globally.
