ENRICH in the USA Centres

ENRICH in the USA established a West Coast Centre in San Francisco and an East Coast Centre in Boston to help EU R&I actors to immerse themselves in the US ecosystem, connect with local and regional partners and clients. These Centres serve as key “connectors” supporting EU R&I actors on the ground wishing to access ENRICH services in the US.

Two physical centres providing work space have been launched:

(1) In San Francisco through EAEC

(2) In Boston at the Cambridge Innovation Centre through InBIA
