Why you should use the BITT funding

To remain competitive, companies today are dependent on their innovative strength and the latest technologies. Without external consulting, this is often difficult to implement efficiently internally.

Funding is provided in the form of a non-repayable grant of a maximum of 400 € per day’s work. A total of 15 days’ work, i.e.,  6,000 €, can be funded for the use of information centers and database research up to 500 €, i.e., a total of 7,500 €.

To implement the findings from the consultation, the DigiBoost funding program can be applied for with a funding rate of up to 15,000 €.
