AI transformation support for SMEs

This initiative, part of the AI Change Agent West project, aims to support 100 SMEs in western Sweden to begin their AI maturity journey, and in the long run ensure that western Swedish companies, value chains and ecosystems utilize the potential of AI driven businesses and services.


Small and medium sized companies is a large and varied group that in many cases has not even started its journey of change towards a digital, data and AI-driven business. This project provides an opportunity to support the SMEs' transformation in an effective way by utilizing knowledge, tools and developed relationships and networks.



The goal is an initiated and strengthened transition to a sustainable and gender-equal, data- and AI driven business at 100 SMEs in Västra Götaland and Halland. It contributes directly to companies' business development through increased digital transformation directly linked to their operations and thereby strengthened competitiveness in regional, national and international markets. It also provides an opportunity for companies to become more innovative and broaden their market.


From late May, small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) can take part in a 6-8 week project that is free of charge. Participants may also be eligible for de minimis aid. The project includes informative talks to help SMEs understand key concepts, an AI Maturity assessment to chart a strategic path forward, and an ideation workshop to identify practical use cases with tangible business benefits.
