Tajani. Farnesina and ICE launch the “Digital Export Bonus Plus’” facility for the internationalisation of SMEs

Today sees the launch of the “Digital Export Bonus Plus” facility, a new business incentive programme promoted by MAECI and ICE-Agenzia, with the technical support of Invitalia, dedicated to the digital internationalisation of Italian small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).

The Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs, Hon. Antonio Tajani, emphasized: “The Digital Export Bonus Plus” aims to offer a concrete tool to SMEs to strengthen their digitalisation process, and make them more capable of responding to the challenges of competitiveness, with a special focus on the areas most affected by the recent floods in Emilia Romagna, Marche and Tuscany.”

The ICE Agenzia President, Matteo Zoppas, said: “Digital technologies are immediately applicable tools which allow, in some cases, to reach results in a short time, thus giving the possibility to establish new business relationships and create value. We hope that also – and above all – the companies that suffered damage from the flooding events will make the most of this opportunity and lay the foundations for development, also thanks to the opening up to international markets.”

With the Digital Export Bonus Plus it will be possible to finance digital consultancy; set up e-commerce systems; launch new communication and digital marketing strategies; and improve company equipment.

Being at the service of micro and small companies and their networks and consortia operating in the manufacturing sector, it is a tool that provides a non-repayable contribution of EUR 10,000, against eligible expenses of no less than EUR 12,500.00 (EUR 22,500 for networks and consortia, against eligible expenses of no less than EUR 25,000). The budget also includes a reserve of EUR 4.5 million exclusively for companies based in the municipalities of Emilia-Romagna, Marche and Tuscany worst hit by the floods, which declared the state of emergency.

The application may be submitted from 10 a.m. on 13 February to 10 a.m. on 12 April 2024 on the portal available at the following address
