Digital Single Market: the European Commission is launching two Call for proposals:

1) Call for proposals for a preparatory action in the field of digital transformation of European industry for a maximum amount of €1.494.000

The aim of the preparatory action is to develop a coherent, coordinated and sustainable approach to enhance the engagement of all relevant stakeholders interested in the digitisation of European industry (business, academia, research organisations and civil society) and to inform, prepare and help them develop projects designed to face the new transformations.

2) Call for proposals for a pilot project in the field of digital enablers in SMEs with the aim of supporting their digitisation and enhancing their capacity to go international and innovate. The pilot project will be for a maximum amount of €994.000.

The aim of the pilot project is to match growth-oriented small- and medium-sized companies and mid-caps on one side with highly-skilled digital experts (digital enablers) on the other side, in order to fill the lack of adequate technological competences and equip the companies concerned with the appropriate knowledge to start their digital transformation.
