KMUdigital’s goal is to support small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in the Lake Constance region in coping with and implementing the rapidly progressing industrial digitisation. This leads to radical upheavals of business models and process chains, which can threaten the very existence of SMEs and in many cases are already having a massive impact today. Due to their limited resources and high degree of specialisation, SMEs hardly have the opportunity to fully grasp and absorb this change. The overarching objectives of the lab are as follows:

1. Increasing the attractiveness of the region
2. Increasing the capacity for research and innovation
3. Extending cross-border cooperation between enterprises and Science and creation of competence clusters
4. Improving the skills of skilled workers and attracting new skilled workers

This project represents the operational management (administration, allocation of funds, event management etc.) of the IBH-Lab KMUdigital.
