Organizer European American Enterprise Council

Organizer of ENRICH FUNDING SUMMIT Post-CES 2022

ENRICH is the European Network of Research and Innovation Centers and Hubs. Promoted by the European Commission through Horizon 2020, the ENRICH Network currently offers services to connect European research, technology and business organisations with three global front-runner innovation markets: Brazil, China and the USA.

Started in April 2017, ENRICH in the USA is a H2020 funded initiative whose mission to establish a Network of European Research and Innovation Centers and Hubs throughout the United States of America. ENRICH in the USA acts as a central contact point for European research and innovation actors seeking to grow, reinforce collaboration, as well as find commercialization paths across the Atlantic.

The mission of ENRICH in the USA is to provide collaboration and commercialization support services to European researchers and innovators in the USA, while facilitating their access to university centric soft landing ecosystems, including US investors, to maximize their chances of success in the United States.

The ENRICH in the USA initiative is lead in the USA by the European American Enterprise Council (EAEC), based in San Francisco, working in close collaboration with SBDC Temple University, based in Philadelphia.

ENRICH in the USA Ambassadors:




Research Parks

R&D institutions and labs


Funding Agencies

Trade Agencies

FDI Agencies

Business Networks

Research and Innovation Networks

University Associations

Trade Associations

Chambers of Commerce

The ENRICH in the USA Network includes the following entities:

One “Coordination Node” in Europe (represented by ENRICH Global)

One “Coordination Node” in the US (represented by EAEC)

Three physical ENRICH in the USA Centres:

San Francisco Centre (managed by EAEC)

Boston Centre (managed by EAEC)

Washington, DC Centre (managed by NCURA)

Seven Landing Hubs across the US, and plans to expand the ENRICH in the USA Network beyond these first seven Hubs, over four years.

The ENRICH in the USA Network is built on local US experience and strong existing ties between the EU and US, while providing new researcher- and entrepreneur-serving capabilities which address the resource gaps necessary to enable access for all EU Member States and Associated Countries, as well as every state in the US.

A variety of services have been proposed for researchers and entrepreneurs engaged by the Network during the pilot phase, then the Centers’ pilot activities have been evaluated to inevitably retain the initiative’s most successful components to ensure a sustainable plan for ENRICH in the USA in the future.

Piloted services targeted various, commercially viable technology maturity levels, both research-oriented and market-oriented and included research connection symposia, business matchmaking opportunities, working visits, immersion weeks, innovation tours to US organisations to explore technology/product partnerships and/or business development middle/long term opportunities, pitching to potential investors, entrepreneurial bootcamps, workspace access, mentorship/advisory, hands-on (pre-acceleration) enrichment programs, and more.

As the ENRICH in the USA initiative is highly competitive to best serve the strongest researchers and entrepreneurs, all services (free or not) must be applied for through an open and transparent selective mechanism.

An initial group of 60 “Supporting Organizations” in the EU and USA have proposed to support ENRICH in the USA and ENRICH in the USA, with more expected in the future.
