Open call! DIGIT-PRE is looking for SMEs who are looking for financial and technical support who can provide innovative digital solutions to a series of societal challenges.

DIGIT-PRE is a unique innovation support program, supported by the EU, for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) with innovative digital solutions for prevention, prediction, and remote care. The DIGIT-PRE network has identified a series of societal challenges that need innovative solutions and they are looking for SMEs that can provide these solutions.

SMEs, located in the region of South Netherlands or West Netherlands, can apply with a relevant SME partner(s) from another DIGIT-PRE region (see the full list here). If you don’t have a partner, DIGIT-PRE can support you by providing a matchmaking process where you can look for relevant SMEs for a joint application. Learn more about this matchmaking process.

Your candidate project should aim at accelerating the development of your product from prototype demonstration to market introduction and address at least one of these five predefined challenge topics:

  • Mental Health
  • Rehabilitation
  • Neurological Conditions
  • Healthy Lifestyle
  • Health and ageing

Each selected SME project, ten in total, will receive financial and technical support to bring the idea towards the market introduction, such as:
