Why was the Luxembourg Digital Innovation Hub, or L-DIH, set up?

Marina Guérin-Jabbour, Head of Digital Innovation Hub at Luxinnovation: The omnipresence of digital technologies and data is completely transforming the way we do business, and the government is determined to position Luxembourg as a leading digital economy. The L-DIH is one of the tools that will turn this strategic ambition into reality.

Our role is to provide companies with personalised services in order to help them succeed with their digital transformation and enhance their competitiveness. We will match them with IT service providers with the most relevant expertise. In addition, we will provide access to technology platforms, prototyping solutions and financial advice, as well as training and skills development.

What is the key added value of the L-DIH?

Our main task is to identify and match companies with external resources, but our role goes far beyond that. Firstly, we help our clients determine what form their digital transformation will take and what processes and technologies they need. We also assess their digital maturity and analyse how it can progress further. As digitalisation radically changes the competitive landscape of many sectors, we then identify new competitors of which they need to be aware. Finally, we help them develop strategic plans for how to succeed in this rapidly evolving environment.

Our main task is to identify and match companies with external resources, but our role goes far beyond that.

In addition, the L-DIH offers solution providers excellent opportunities to present their offering to industrial partners and potential clients, in Luxembourg or abroad. As the hub is part of the Digital Europe programme, we also serve as a relay to European institutions.

What results do you want to see in order to consider the L-DIH as a success?

We will be successful if we are involved in the major digital transformation projects of customers from the early stages to the implementation. Another key indicator is whether companies come back to us after our initial meeting to ask for further support with the next steps. We also hope to provide com- panies and solution providers with opportunities to expand their activity across our national borders.

Industry 4.0 is a major priority in Luxembourg. The ultimate goal of the L-DIH is to participate in boosting the national economy in this field and to influence the digitalisation of other sectors.
