European SMEs developing AI and/or blockchain technologies can apply with Digital and Green Transition projects.
AIBC EUROCLUSTERS is offering funding to small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to support digitisation activities, service enablement and product development for their digital and green transition.
The call for proposals targets European SMEs in the manufacturing, mobility, logistics and energy sectors, with a focus on the development and deployment of artificial intelligence and blockchain technologies.
Activities include the planning phase of digital transformation through AI and blockchain. The topics are grouped according to the main challenges today and presented with a brief description of each challenge.
Funding includes technology transfer, PoC, business model development and product or solution development. Approved applicants can receive up to €15,000, with a total budget of €150,000 for the first call, which can benefit at least 10 SMEs. The second call offers similar opportunities and covers a variety of events including summits, congresses, forums and exhibitions with a focus on ecology and sustainability. The deadline for the first call is 5 September 2023.
Eligible costs that financial assistance can cover include travel, accommodation, subsistence, as well as participation and booth fees specific to the event. To be eligible for funding, events must take place between November 2023 and October 2024 and be located outside the applicant’s region.
With this initiative, European SMEs have a valuable opportunity to connect with the global AI and blockchain community, opening doors for collaboration, innovation and exposure on an international stage. Interested SMEs are encouraged to seize this chance and submit their online applications before the respective deadlines for both procedures.
