SME digitalisation subsidy

Table of Contents

In Spain, SMEs account for more than 99% of the business fabric but their adaptation to new technologies is slow, due to more limited budgets when it comes to facing challenges such as digital transformation. If we also take into account the crisis generated by the COVID-19, the SME sector is more susceptible to suffer the ravages. This is why the state has promoted a series of measures to boost the sector.

The most important of these, the AceleraPYME Programme of, includes measures worth €250 million in the technological field to tackle the crisis generated by COVID-19. For this reason, the Spanish Government, within the framework of the Digital Agenda, is developing actions focused on improving their competitiveness by granting subsidies for the digitalisation of SMEs.
