Digitalisation of Construction SMEs

Welcome to the Digitalisation of Construction SMEs

Who we are

The European Innovation Council and SMEs Executive Agency (EISMEA) under the powers delegated by the European Commission, contracted a consortium to support the digitalisation of construction SMEs. The consortium is composed of Ecorys, TNO, IMP³ROVE, and Europa Media Group.

Service offer to SMEs

We offer three high-quality services for construction SMEs: a digital maturity scan, an interactive handbook and a best practice case library to support the digitalisation of companies.


Our services benefit SMEs and the whole construction industry by assessing and stepping up their level of digital maturity, and by harmonising EU digitalisation support measures.

Our key services

Digital transformation supports the creation and modernisation of jobs, increase efficiencies and productivity and as such the competitiveness of construction SMEs. We provide support through maturity scans, a handbook and best practice cases. Moreover, complementary trainings have been delivered.

Maturity scan

Discover your status in the five dimensions of digital transformation. The digital maturity scan invites all SMEs in construction regardless of the current affinity with digitalisation.

Supporting the digitalisation of construction SMEs

Taking stock eight months after the launch of this website, we see an uptake in the support tools provided, but a long way ahead for the digitalisation of the construction sector. 


Video: Introducing the digitalisation of construction SMEs project

To support the digitalisation of construction SMEs, we recently launched a new training programme. However, companies and other organisations  can find many more support tools on this website. You can watch our new video to find out more about how the tools provided on this website can help your organisation to digitalise.


New languages available to support construction SMEs

Language barriers are often mentioned as a challenge in the construction sector. This relates both, to the actual work as people from several countries might be working on one construction site, as well as to EU level support measures as information often is only available in English. 


First digitalisation training for construction SMEs completed!

We are excited to announce that last week Friday, we successfully launched our series of trainings dedicated to support the digitalisation of construction SMEs.
