AIMS OF THE INITIATIVE?

The unjustified Russian aggression in Ukraine has refocused international efforts on energy dependence and supply chain resilience. Some of the crucial issues faced by EU companies relate to raw materials, transport, energy costs and logistics.

With the ‘Get Digital – Go Green and Be Resilient’ initiative we are launching a call for expression of interest to create a catalogue featuring innovative digital solutions. The initiative will be followed by two workshops focused on showcasing and facilitating the acceleration of the uptake of innovative solutions that help European industry become increasingly energy independent and supply chain resilient.

THE WORKSHOPS

To promote the initiative, we will organise the following two workshops to showcase, among others, the most impactful solutions:

  • The first “Get Digital: Go Green” workshop, will have a focus on digital solutions that can reduce overall energy consumption within business operations.
  • The second “Get Digital: Be Resilient” workshop, will zoom in on digital solutions supporting the supply chain resilience of European industry. For example, we are looking for solutions able to tackle supply chain disruptions that affect several sectors such as automotive, construction and agri-food allowing companies to remain competitive.

A jury made up of independent investment and business managers will select the most impactful submissions who will the get the opportunity to present at the workshops, and those companies will receive tailored coaching from experts of SME support services funded by relevant EU programmes such as the Enterprise Europe Network or Digital Innovation Hubs, identified based on the needs of each company’s project. One expert will be the key account manager and coordinate the support to each company.

Get your solution promoted in either of the workshops by signing up and becoming featured in the digital solutions catalogue!

WHY SHOULD MY BUSINESS PARTICIPATE?

Your innovative solutions will be featured in a comprehensive European-wide digital catalogue of use cases listing innovative digital business solutions that can help the EU and Ukraine, Moldova and Georgia become less dependent on oil, gas and input/raw materials, by reducing overall the energy consumption and strengthening the supply chain resilience of European industry.

By bringing your digital business solution to the table, you will be able to promote your innovative digital technology as well as business model and increase your business exposure to the traditional industry environment.
