The European Commission is aiming to extend the network of the ENRICH centres in USA, Brazil and China to cover other regions, to connect European researchers and entrepreneurs globally.  

The ENRICH in Africa (EiA) project is addressing this challenge by establishing the EiA Centre, targeting the sub-Saharan African region.  

The focus of the activities will be the set-up of a network of incubators and accelerators to deliver services to European and African innovators. 

This foundation offers a strong revenue model that can ensure a legacy for the commitment provided by the European Commission through this grant. Utilising this co-creation ethos EiA brings together incubators and accelerators across the EU and Africa to act as Champions for EiA. Key elements of the concept are the focus on capacity building and learning for incubators and accelerators for them be able to offer high-quality services to innovators. The EiA multi-sided platform, with a clever digital backbone, will be the central point for all EiA activities, offering different services for a wide range of stakeholders in the EU-Africa innovation ecosystem. 

This project offers a testable framework, which will be piloted in the initial stage of the project timeframe, leading into an evaluation and subsequent centre implementation phase, which will see the roll-out of the piloted project to its full commercial capacity, ensuring that the EiA Centre will be carried forward beyond the lifetime of the project.
