Primera convocatoria de ayudas del Programa Kit Digital
Descripción

Red.es, the public body responsible for granting aid under the Digital Kit Programme, is launching the call for applications for aid aimed at the digitalisation of small companies, micro-enterprises and self-employed individuals so that they can adopt digitalisation solutions available on the market. All this, within the framework of the Spain Digital Agenda 2025, the SME Digitalisation Plan 2021-2025 and the Recovery, Transformation and Resilience Plan - Funded by the European Union - Next Generation EU.

On this occasion, this first line of aid is aimed at companies with between 10 and less than 50 employees in order to improve their competitiveness and their level of digital maturity. These grants have a budget of 500 million euros for beneficiary companies to adopt one or more digitalisation solutions available in the Digitalisation Solutions Catalogue of the Digital Kit Programme included in our Acelera pyme Platform.

The maximum amount of aid or digital voucher per beneficiary will be €12,000 and with it SMEs will be able to acquire digitalisation solutions for key areas such as: website and internet presence, social network management, e-commerce; customer management; virtual office services and tools, business intelligence and analytics, process management, electronic invoicing, secure communications and cybersecurity.

When can you apply?

Interested companies will be able to apply for the grants from 15 March at the Red.es website and the deadline will be open until 15 September or until the funds run out.

 

How to apply for the Digital Kit voucher

  1. Register in the Acelera pyme private area and complete the self-diagnosis test.
  2. Consult the information available on the digitalisation solutions of the Digital Kit Programme, from which you can choose one or more of those offered by the digitalisation agents.
  3. Request help at the Red.es electronic headquarters.

Once the aid is granted:

  1. Access the Digitialising Agents Catalogue and select the agent with which you want to develop digital solutions.
  2. Get in touch with the digitising agents and sign the "agreement for the provision of digitisation solutions".

 

Digitalising Agents Catalogue

From the 10th of March we will publish the Digitisers Catalogue with the first digitising agents adhered to the programme on our Acelera pyme website. The deadline to become a digitising agent will be open throughout the duration of the Digital Kit Programme. For this reason, the catalogue will be updated and expanded as the membership applications are resolved.

It should be noted that the function of the digitalising agents is to collaborate and help SMEs in the process of applying for aid. They will be the ones to present all the supporting documentation and, once the service has been provided and its justification has been approved, they will receive the payment of the digital voucher.
