New funding offensive: 4.5 million euros for digitisation projects
From May this year, the Vienna Business Agency will use a total of 4.5 million euros to support digitisation projects by micro, small and medium-sized enterprises. This is specifically intended to support small enterprises and micro-entities in gaining a foothold in digitisation. As early as 2018, 7.67 million euros in funding earmarked for digitisation measures were disbursed to Viennese enterprises.
With this new funding offensive, the Vienna Business Agency is laying the foundations for Viennese companies to seamlessly transition into the digital age, while also supporting them in the implementation of operational innovations. Depending on the size of the enterprise and the project, up to 30,000 euros are available to support digitisation measures.
Two different funding measures tailored to different needs and financing capacities will be available from 1 May. They will be distributed as part of the new Wien Digital funding, and the Vienna Business Agency is opening up the local supply funding programme for digitisation measures.
