Funding for SMEs made easy
To enable SMEs to profitably exploit the economic potential of digitization, the European Commission is providing further funding for technology transfer to small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in two open calls VOJEXT and DIH4AI. In both competition processes, European companies can secure both financial support for the development of new digital products and the necessary access to current know-how and technology platforms.
The fortiss Mittelstand team accompanies you on the path of digital transformation and is a competent contact for funding opportunities as well as for the application of open calls to initiate and apply for digital product developments that are as promising as possible.
The European project VOJEXT and fortiss invite small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) with innovative ideas in cognitive robotics to the 2nd Open Call. The successful submissions will be funded with up to 80,000 euros.
The European project DIH4AI and fortiss are calling on small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) with innovative solutions in the field of artificial intelligence (AI) to participate in the 2nd Open Call. The selected proposals will be funded with up to 100,000 euros.
The funding instrument of Open Calls is already anchored in various fortiss research projects. It opens up the possibility of financial support for interested SMEs as well as cooperation with a competent technical partner.
This whitepaper illustrates the advantages of this funding model for your company and provides guidance on how digital innovation projects can be financed and realized in a targeted manner.

Digital Innovation Hubs (DIHs) specifically accompany companies in making their business/production processes, products or services more competitive with the help of digital technologies. They rely on a technological infrastructure (Competence Center - CC) and provide access to the latest knowledge, expertise and technologies to support their customers in testing, experimenting with digital innovations.
