The Fund for the Digital Republic represents a partnership between public and private social (Government and Association of Foundations and Savings Banks – Acre) and is born within the scope of the digitisation objectives set out in the National Recovery and Resilience Plan and the National Complementary Fund, with the aim of increasing the digital skills of citizens, supporting projects aimed at training and digital inclusion. On an experimental basis for five years (until 2026), the Fund allocates a total of 350 million euros and is supported by payments made by the Foundations of banking origin, which is granted an incentive in the form of a tax credit. The aim is to support projects, selected through calls, aimed at training and digital inclusion, to increase digital skills and contribute to the digital transition of the country and improve the corresponding indicators of the Digital Economy and Society Index (DESI) (since September 2023, 2030 Digital Decade Report). The Fund, through the impact assessment of the projects, aims to select the most effective – expanding their action on the national territory – to offer best practices to the central government to be transformed into policy, and to be able to make them structural and permanent. The working team – under 35 and women’s majority – led by Director Giorgio Righetti and President Giovanni Fosti, has published four calls (Futura, Onlife, Perspectives and In Progress) for a total of 43 million euros.
