Digital technologies have dramatically changed organization and work in small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) too. With the right strategy, digital transformation can be an enormous opportunity for them, but not the least of the problems facing SMEs is the capacity to address this. This is where an EU project comes in, intended to strengthen innovation in medium-sized companies. It is designed to help SMEs to develop research skills and integrate new knowledge and innovations.

The practice-based, free program is being offered by the Institute for Work and Technology (IAT/Westphalian University of Applied Sciences) in cooperation with partners across the EU. Employees of the company learn to identify opportunities for digital transformation, collect and analyze relevant data, and ultimately to launch, manage and assess their own research project for a digital business model. The training is carried out mainly via digital media; further information is available from the IAT.
