The new funding programme enables the establishment and operation of stationary and mobile innovation spaces for digitalization. Local innovation spaces for digitalization, LIfD for short, are places where model projects for co-working spaces, innovation and solution labs or digital labs are set up, operated and further developed. The aim is to promote the networking of people, projects and organizations in the field of digitalization in the Free State of Saxony through a cross-industry and cross-sector approach.

Digital Minister Martin Dulig: “With the new funding guideline, we have created a great offer to support digital change in the Free State of Saxony. We are thus promoting the expansion of the digital ecosystem, especially in rural areas. With the new cross-sectoral approach, it will be increasingly possible to bring together different economic and social players who do not usually find each other easily. I am looking forward to the concepts submitted and recommend that all interested parties take advantage of this opportunity.”

The maximum grant for stationary LIfD is 400,000 euros. The mobile innovation space can be funded with up to 3,000,000 euros. The concepts must be submitted via the online portal of the Sächsische Aufbaubank – Förderbank – (SAB) and will then be evaluated by a jury. If the decision is positive, an invitation will be issued to submit a formal application to the SAB.
