Support eligibility

DIGI-RAIL currently supports businesses based in the West Midlands and the Sheffield City region. 

SMEs in the Greater Birmingham and Solihull (GBS), Coventry and Warwickshire (CW) and Black Country (BC) Local Enterprise Partnership areas (LEPs) are eligible for support from our DIGI-RAIL West Midlands team.

Please visit the online postcode checker to find out which LEP your company is in.

An SME is defined as an independent company with fewer than 250 employees and a turnover of less than 50 million euros. There are also limitations around how much State Aid your company has received (if any) under either the GBER or De Minimus schemes, which are both capped at €200,000.

Alternatively, contact us by emailing digi-rail@contacts.bham.ac.uk and a member of the West Midlands team will be able to advice you further.
