Alongside the various action and funding plans implemented by the government to combat the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, Luxinnovation, the national agency for the promotion of innovation, is mobilising its resources and skills to help companies respond to the need for individual protection equipment during the on-going health crisis.
In order to support the Luxembourg start-up ecosystem, the Ministry of the Economy, in collaboration with Luxinnovation, will launch a call for projects entitled “StartupsVsCovid19” on 9 April 2020. A series of webinars on the main support measures that start-ups can benefit from will also be organised.
As part of the “Digital transformation journey for SMEs” initiative, Luxinnovation collaborates with FundecytPCTEX (ES) and SC IPA SA (RO). The objective is to publish a guide with tools to help other innovation agencies and organisations to drive digitalisation in companies.
