With the increasing demand for digital transformation and (digital) technology transfer (TT), digital innovation hubs (DIHs) are the new piece of the puzzle of our economy and industries’ landscapes. Evidence shows that DIHs can provide good opportunities to access needed innovations, technologies, and resources at a higher level than other organizations that can normally access them. However, it is critically important to note that DIHs are still evolving, under research, and under development. That is, there are many substantial aspects of DIHs that should be considered. For example, DIHs must cater to a wide spectrum of needs for TT. From this perspective, the contribution of this work is proposing a generic and flexible learning framework, aiming to assist DIHs in providing suitable education, training, and learning services that support the process of (digital) TT to companies. The proposed learning framework was designed, evaluated, and improved with the support of two EU projects, and these processes are discussed in brief. The primary and leading results gained in this way show that the learning framework has immense potential for application to similar cases, and it can facilitate and expedite the process of TT to companies. The study is concluded with some directions for future works.
