Digital Growth Programme Grant Scheme

European Regional Development Fund

The Digital Growth Programme Grant Scheme forms part of the D2N2 Digital Growth Programme, which will see around £7.25 million of funding invested into the D2N2 economy by 2019.

Part funded through ERDF and delivered across the whole D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) area, the D2N2 Digital Growth Programme aims to support growing businesses to explore and introduce new and emerging ICT products / services into their business to improve competitiveness, productivity, perceptions about ICT’s role in business growth and to take advantage of commercial opportunities – consequently driving economic growth across the D2N2 area.

Activities include:

  • an interactive events programme of seminars, hackathons, ‘action planning’ workshops and conferences
  • '1-2-1' technical ICT support – up to 12 hours on site support
  • skills advice and support
  • technology grants.

How to apply

The Scheme operates a two-stage application process – an online Expression of Interest followed by a Full Application.

However, in the first instance, all organisations interested in grant funding must register with the DGP to confirm their eligibility for funding through ERDF.

Once registered, and your organisation is confirmed as eligible for ERDF funding, you will be contacted to complete an Expression of Interest. Applicants are advised to read the guidance notes prior to submitting an Expression of Interest.
