Fit4digital: State aid for digitisation

Financial support for SMEs
Various aid measures in favour of SMEs have been put in place by the Ministry of the Economy, initially concerning the diagnosis of the company and then the implementation of the project.
OpenField then proposes an encrypted action plan. This diagnosis is fully covered by the program and is 100% reimbursed by the Ministry.
As for the implementation of the project, the Ministry grants state aid up to 50% of the consultancy costs and investment aid is also granted for the hardware and software supported.
Luxembourg is providing a strong incentive for companies to take the step, which until now has been limited in number, to take advantage of this programme.
OpenField’s mission is to raise awareness, inform and guide Luxembourg companies in their digital transformation. Fit4digital will allow companies to remain competitive and conquer new markets. For further information on OpenField’s approach, please contact our experts directly
