Taking the digital leap in business


Taking the digital leap in business

Martti Ahtisaari Institute, VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland and three companies will carry out a project aiming at boosting the digital leap – helping companies to advance in digitalization so that the related threats and opportunities can be assessed and digitalization introduced to business operations and offerings  in a systematic way.

Digitalization is one of the major trends changing businesses and the society and a whole, often impacting quite dramatically on well-established ways of working. Neglecting digitalization would cause a risk of losing one’s position.  The other way round, digitalization can bring new opportunities, change networks and roles of actors and revitalize existing solutions.

The result of the project is a business development frame that enables companies move forward in digitalization. All project parties will contribute to the creation and piloting of the frame.

The project is supported by European structural funds and will last until the end of June 2019.
