What we offer: Tailor-made services for the tourism, sports and leisure industry

Digitization and innovation capabilities are critical for both SMEs and the public sector to achieve sustainability goals and profitably leverage the digital transformation.

We are a one-stop-shop where organizations and companies – especially small, medium and mid-cap companies – receive support for product and service innovation, value creation processes and business models. They get low-threshold access to digital expertise, testing infrastructure, networks and funding guidance.

We will take you as you are!

During an initial consultation, we will jointly analyze the current situation and explore the digital and green transformation potential, as well as support options, through the EDIH. The next step is implementation – completely free of charge for SMEs and midcaps, without application risk and without complex funding and billing mechanisms.
