The SIMEST 394/81 fund for the internationalization and investments of exporter SME reopens

We remind all Italian companies in the stone/techno-stone industry that October 28 saw the reopening of the SIMEST 394/81 fund in aid of the internationalization and investments of exporter SMEs.

The main changes from the previous edition of the call are the possibility for companies to make just one application for funding and the definition of three new financing lines, described as:

“DIGITAL AND ECOLOGICAL TRANSITION” LINE: which facilitates investments in digital transition for a minimum share of 50% of the admissible expenditures financed and investments aimed at promoting sustainability and competitiveness on international markets for the remaining share.

“E-COMMERCE” LINE: which facilitates creating a company’s own e-tail site and improving an existent one as well as access to a new space/store on a third-party site to market goods/services made in Italy or under an Italian brand in foreign countries.

“TRADESHOW AND EXHIBIT” LINE: which facilitates SME participation in international tradeshows and exhibits, also held in Italy (included in the Italian Expo and Tradeshow – AEFI – calendar) and system missions.

As always, Confindustria Marmomacchine assists its members thanks to its technical partnership with FinAge Consulting, whose functionaries are available to companies for an initial informative consultancy that can be requested from the association by writing to:
