As a continuation of the Extended Monaco programme, to support economic recovery of the Principality, the Government has drawn up an action plan.
This plan is based on the implementation of a support fund, entitled the "Blue Fund," aimed at promoting economic recovery via digital technology. This fund meets three objectives:
- To develop the digital maturity of Monegasque companies
- To promote an ecosystem that is conducive to the digital economy
- To support the Monegasque digital services for businesses sector
Within this framework and based on the principle of co-financing, the Blue Fund supports digital transition projects that are in line with these objectives.
More information about the procedure to be followed in order to receive support from the Blue Fund can be accessed by following this link.
Promoting Monaco Cloud services
Created within the framework of Extended Monaco, Monaco Cloud is the operator of Monaco's Sovereign Cloud. Its mission is to offer the Monegasque Government, Critical Infrastructure Operators (CIOs) and private companies in Monaco and the region infrastructures and cloud services (IaaS/PaaS) with the highest standards of quality and security. Its infrastructures are located in Monaco, and the data hosted there is therefore subject to Monegasque law.
Monaco Cloud's activity is structured around three types of project that are eligible for the Blue Fund:
1. Migration projects to the sovereign Cloud
2. Software and SaaS motorisation on Monaco Cloud infrastructures and integration into the Monaco Cloud marketplace
3. Obtaining Monaco Cloud certification
Extended Monaco for Businesses
The Blue Fund is backed by the Extended Monaco for Businesses platform, a tool to support the digital transition of Monegasque businesses. This platform enables businesses to assess their digital maturity, access e-learning training, identify digital technology professionals who can support them in their digital transition and access the Blue Fund.
At the same time, Extended Monaco for Businesses offers an opportunity to register for events related to digital transition, including the "Digital Workshops"(Ateliers du Numérique), a series of webinars held monthly in association with companies that are global leaders in the digital field, to continue learning about the challenges of the digital world (Google, Facebook, Microsoft, LinkedIn, Amazon).
