In previous meetings, peer learning activities of advanced digitalisation approaches have been addressed. The topics discussed include initiatives and tools for a deep and contextual assessment of customer needs and the design of a digitalisation path for SMEs with value improvement proposals that address their real needs in terms of digital transformation, and allow them to increase their competitiveness thanks to customised digitalisation support based on digital solutions in line with their current business.
The DigiJourney project was launched on 12 November 2019 at the Science and Technology Park of Extremadura, when the first peer learning on the DigitaliseSME project tool was held, in which FUNDECYT-PCTEX, IPA-SA and Luxinnovation participated as partners.
