The award has not only given us an award, it has also created many new contacts and networks. The fact that we have been open about how we tackled the digitization journey has meant that we have been able to learn from other companies' challenges and experiences.

Digitalisation by SMEs

The Smart Industry competition is aimed at small and medium-sized enterprises that take advantage of the opportunities offered by digitalisation in a smart and innovative way, leading to clear improvements in resource efficiency or climate impact.

Anyone can nominate their own or someone else’s company. All the nominated companies are asked to accept their nomination and participate in the competition by answering a number of questions on a form.

All the entries received are then reviewed by a selection committee. Based on the selection, the jury compiles a shortlist of finalists to be interviewed, before the award-winners and recipients of any honorary mentions are selected. 

The prize-winners win a customised study trip for inspiration purposes.
