Wallachia eHub´s mission is to become the digital transformation gateway in the Region of South-Muntenia, Romania (RSM), by providing twin transition services and solutions to both the private sector (start-ups, SMEs, small mid-caps) and the public sector. We start from a challenging position as our region is classified as “Emerging Innovator” and Romania ranks last in DESI 2021, being also one of the most exposed regions to climate change and environmental degradation. Therefore, green digital technologies should be the focus of our actions at regional level for environmental and societal sustainability and a more resilient region. Our vision is based on our role as a regional catalyst with many collaborations both nationally and internationally.
Through this project, we aim to transform RSM into a competitive regional economy, with reverberations in the macro-regional context of the Danube Strategy and at European level. The project addresses challenges in an integrated approach creating greater innovation-based resilience at company and sector levels. Wallachia eHub estimates to generate an increased number of companies developing and adopting digital innovative solutions, set-up of new innovative start-ups, new digital technological competencies, more revenues for the companies; upskilling and reskilling the workforce in the region to support job creation, contributing to the green economy.
