Funding for licensing costs with "Digital Jetzt"

Some companies are already familiar with the federal government's "Digital Jetzt" funding program. But only a few know that, in addition to further training and hardware equipment, license costs are also funded.

The prerequisite is that the application supports the "internal and external networking" of your company and improves your processes.

Funding priority II fulfilled: "Support for internal and external networking"

  • digital interface between planning and execution of work orders as well as between information / systems and your workers
  • easy integration into existing IT systems and linking with third-party systems for a continuous flow of information without media breaks

Is there further support?

Yes. In addition to the federal and state funding programs, there is also financial support for digitalization in companies at the EU level. Here you can apply for funding for projects in the following areas, among others:

  • building the infrastructure for collecting and analyzing large amounts of data (Big Data applications)
  • development of digital twins
  • development of IoT platforms
  • development of predictive maintenance applications

The "Digital Jetzt" funding program gives you the opportunity to have licenses for a worker guidance system funded by the federal government. A modern system such as our weasl already fulfills key funding criteria, so there is a good chance that your application will be approved. Applications for funding must be submitted to the Federal Ministry of Economics and Climate Protection, which examines each application in detail.
