The EU-LAC Digital Accelerator held its kick-off meeting on March 8th at TECNALIA in Colombia. The ten strategic partners – from Europe, Latin America and the Caribbean – gathered in Bogota to introduce themselves and present their work for this initiative, which is funded by the Development & International Cooperation Instrument (NDICI-Global Europe).

The EU-LAC Digital Accelerator project is part of the EU-LAC Digital Alliance, set to launch in Colombia in March. The European alliance aims to foster the development of secure, resilient and human-centric digital infrastructures based on a values-based framework, ensuring a democratic and transparent enabling environment and strongly emphasising privacy and digital rights.

In this line, the EU-LAC Digital Accelerator will foster multi-stakeholder and private-sector collaboration, competitiveness, skills, and innovation in the digital area, promoting impact investments and support for delivering e-services by both public and private entities. The project aims to create an acceleration bridge between the European Union, Latin America and the Caribbean, advancing international cooperation for digital transformation.

With the kick-off meeting successfully concluded, the team is excited to see the positive impact of this open innovation ecosystem on businesses and job creation in the Caribbean and Latin America for the following five years to come.
