European Commission - Open calls for SMEs

As part of the Digitising European Industry strategy, the European Commission has launched the I4MS and SAE initiatives to support the creation of a strong pan-European network of Digital Innovation Hubs and to help companies make the most of digital opportunities.

Through different Innovation Actions, I4MS and SAE finance small scale experiments where companies –especially SMEs, startups and mid-caps– can implement and test digital innovations to ultimately develop new products, processes and services. These experiments are done in collaboration with Digital Innovation Hubs, which offer access to technology-testing, financing advice, market intelligence and networking opportunities. 

If you are an SME interested in advancing your digital transformation by getting involved in the Digital Innovation Hubs network, you can take part in the available open calls for experiments. You can find below a timeline overview of all upcoming calls until 2020 in different projects and topics. Relevant links will be become available for each of the calls once they open.
