The goal is to build a new digitech value chain that will be demonstrated in real environments and that will begin its internationalization. In line with the process described, DIVA thus is able to deliver different types of vouchers:
Business maturation voucher: aims at funding activities to mature a business model supported by innovative products, processes, services and technologies related to digitalization of agrofood, environmental or forestry sector.
Technology maturation voucher: aims at funding activities to produce plans and arrangements or design for new, altered or improved products, processes or services, including prototyping or testing.
Small scale demonstration voucher: aims at funding activities to validate the technical and economic viability of a new or improved product, process, service, solution or technology in an operational (or near to operational) environment.
Large scale demonstration voucher: aims at funding the same activities than above but from a higher starting technology readiness level.
Internationalization voucher: aims at funding activities to foster internationalization of a group of SMEs with a demonstrated value chain, aiming at catalysing their development, facilitating access to an international network of high-level consultants and experts.
