Ukraine: digital transformation projects invited to apply for ‘Community 4.0’ support

Ukrainian municipalities and regional digital transformation leaders are invited to apply for ‘Community 4.0’ support for digital projects contributing to the country’s resilience at both local and national levels during the ongoing war. 

The call is launched by Ukraine’s Ministry of Digital Transformation and the Ukrainian organisation SocialBoost, with support from the EU-funded U-LEAD with Europe programme.

The ‘Community 4.0’ (Громада 4.0) acceleration programme covers initiatives relating to the digital economy, development of digital skills or digital infrastructure in communities, and digitalisation of public services. It involves the use of existing technologies and the development of new solutions.  

Applicants should represent a community with a population of up to 50,000 people, have broadband internet connectivity and a circle of activists who are ready to initiate and implement digital change. 

SocialBoost will select 48 communities, with the goal of developing at least 24 digital transformation project concepts ready for piloting. 

The Ukrainian Ministry of Digital Transformation will support the programme, providing access to best practices and resources.

The deadline for applications is 20 February.
