Digital Process Innovation

What is a digital process innovation grant?

This grant is designed to encourage businesses to adopt advanced digital production techniques and service delivery methods, ultimately boosting operational effectiveness, productivity, and competitiveness. Funded under Ireland’s National Recovery and Resilience Plan (2021-2026), the grant supports projects that either promote the digital transformation of a company or further the goal of decarbonising the enterprise sector. Eligible projects should introduce innovative digital or automation systems, offer enhanced digital experiences for customers, or implement sustainable production methods that reduce waste and emissions. The objective is to foster a significant leap in a company’s capabilities and operational efficiency, with innovation being gauged against the company’s current state rather than industry standards.
