The funding programme wants to accelerate the use of information and communication technology so as to continuously enhance the competitive position of Bavarian businesses and to create new jobs. The funding programme supports the development of new cooperation and the expansion of existing ones in which businesses and research institutions jointly work on application-oriented research and development. In the field of digitalisation, R&D joint projects of Bavarian partners from various application sectors receive support.

The VDI/VDE-IT acts as project management.
