On the other hand, there are many companies with a strong degree of automation and a solid digitization strategy or roadmap. On the other hand, many companies are still at the very beginning of their digitalization efforts. In order to support companies with different degrees of digital maturity, the funding  was specifically targeted at two key areas”, explains LH-Stv. Dr. Strugl.
