What is our challenge?
In the European Commission’s strategy for Europe 2020, the digital economy and a digital single market (DSM) are highlighted as drivers of future innovation, competitiveness, and growth. Baltic Sea Region (BSR) countries are frontrunners in many aspects of the digital economy. At the same time, BSR countries are facing similar challenges in the digital area.
With DIGINNO we are focusing on three challenges:
promoting uptake of ICT in the business sector,
developing innovative digital public services and
facilitating DSM related policy discussions on BSR level.
These challenges can be tackled through strengthening the macro-regional knowledge base (e.g information sharing, studies), exchange of experience and mutual learning, designing and piloting transnational digital solutions and conducting policy and regulatory dialog.

Company digitalization toolkit for SMEs
4 show-case models of G2B cross-border e-services (incl. feasibility analyses and proofs of concept)
