Knowledge transfer to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs)
As a knowledge platform for SMEs, the forum organizes roadshows throughout Germany to inform about trends and developments in the area of digital technologies.
The conference series “smarter_mittelstand” has been imparting compact and practical knowledge about digitalization since 2016. As a partner of the initiative, Forum Digital Technologies helps to prepare medium-sized enterprises for challenges of future digital topics.
As part of the project, a “SME Onboarding Factory” is currently being developed and managed as a hub for the engineering of digital business models. The SME Onboarding Factory aims to support small and medium-sized companies, also known as “Mittelstand” in Germany, to develop their own platform business models and smart services.
„The roadshow ‚Smarter Mittelstand‘ offers an excellent platform concerning topics of digital transformation for SMEs. Alongside the program that provides innovative solutions and concepts, there is always room and time for intense conversations. Medium-sized enterprises from the respective region find an ideal framework for exchange about topics such as cloud and digitalization with solution providers and representatives from research projects.“
