Available Grants for Digital Transformation


Principle 4 of the MIA Digital Technology Blueprint establishes the importance of funding in the digital transformation process. In the MIA’s surveys on technology adoption in 2017 and 2019, cost was identified as the top barrier in adopting technology.

One of MIA’s initiatives in its Digital Technology Blueprint Operation Plan is identifying the availability of funding in order to assist our members in the adoption of digital technology.
