Digitalization is not just a trend but a crucial element for the evolution and success of both individuals and organizations. The modern world increasingly relies on technological innovations that enable faster, more efficient, and adaptable processes. Recognizing the importance of technological progress, Croatia has launched a public call to promote digitalization.
Small, medium, and micro-enterprises can access €9.95 million as part of the National Recovery and Resilience Plan. The new call for project proposals, “Digitalization Vouchers,” will be open from November 1, 2023, to December 1, 2023.
Types of Vouchers
The second call for these transformative vouchers encompasses several types, depending on the needs of small and medium enterprises:
➡️ Voucher for improving digital skills
➡️ Voucher for digital marketing
➡️ Voucher for developing a digital transformation strategy
➡️ Voucher for cyber resilience diagnostics
➡️ Voucher for complex digital solutions
These voucher types provide support for various vital activities essential for the development of modern businesses. Depending on the voucher type, funding is available for several crucial initiatives, including support for specialized non-formal learning programs focused on developing the digital skills necessary for leading digital transformation, creating websites, applications, and e-commerce platforms, developing comprehensive digital transformation strategies with precise action plans and implementation monitoring methodology, verifying a company’s cyber security through security checks and data analysis, as well as defining additional system improvements and implementing complex digital solutions to enable the development of digital business models and strengthen capacity for digitalization and digital transformation.
Potential applicants can pose questions during the call to gain additional clarifications and explanations of the call’s provisions. Questions can be submitted exclusively through the eNPOO system up to 14 calendar days before the expiration of individual project proposal submission deadlines.
