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 Landing 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, investment and other partnership opportunities.

This initial list of Landing Hubs 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 Landing 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 future goal of the ENRICH in the USA Landing 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)
