SME- Digital Center Augsburg

Support for small and medium-sized businesses

The SME-Digital Center Augsburg supports small and medium-sized enterprises to use the changes of digitalization and Industry 4.0 as a chance. For this purpose we offer practical information and comprehensible learning opportunities. We show companies practical approaches to solutions that they can integrate into their everyday business.

Our key topics include sustainability, digital strategies, artificial intelligence, work 4.0, finance 4.0 and networked production and logistics.

The project is funded by the Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Action. This means that all services offered by the SME-Digital Center Augsburg are free of charge.

The free offers


At events, lectures, trade fair appearances, and in our information material, we provide information about digitization possibilities for various areas and applications in medium-sized companies. In published practical examples, you will find suggestions for the implementation in your own company.


We offer training on-site and online. Current topics, technologies, processes, and methods are taught in a clear and practice-oriented manner. In our learning factory, participants can test and experience digitization possibilities for themselves.


In free potential analyses and projects, our experts support companies in the development and implementation of digital solutions. We visit companies on-site, derive needs for action, and support the implementation of new ideas.


In our expert networks, experts, users and interested parties meet regularly to work together on action guidelines, standardization solutions or future technologies.


You are cordially invited to join the working groups.
