European project Digipro nominated for RegioStars Award
The EU-funded project Digipro has been selected as a finalist for the RegioStars Awards 2023. As every year, the public can vote for their favourite REGIOSTARS finalists. The public vote is open until 14 November.
Last week, Erwin Altena, project manager Oost NL, pitched Digipro during the final round of project presentations at the EU Regions’ Week. We were honored to have Euro Commissioner Elisa Ferreira in attendance.
Over the last 5 years Digipro has helped over 500 SMEs in the Dutch-German border area with their digital transformation. 140 initiatives were funded, 70 digital innovations were developed. It enhanced the digital capabilities and resilience of SMEs with a cross-border approach.
During the presentation, Erwin Altena introduced the concept of SOFA (Service Oriented Funding Approach), making it easier for SMEs to engage in EU funding projects. We believe this innovative approach could be a game-changer for other projects as well.
The RegioStars Awards, presented by the European Commission, celebrate projects funded by the EU that demonstrate ingenuity and new approaches to regional development. These projects play an important role in inspiring other regions and initiatives across Europe.
Please vote for Digipro and help us secure the RegioStars Public Choice Award, further empowering SMEs in the future.
