Name of the Project: Digital transformation is making its way to businesses – development of key performance indicators to increase sector productivity – DIG-IN-KPI

Duration of the Project: 01.11.2022 until 01.03.2024 

- Economic Chamber of North Macedonia
- Croatian Chamber of Economy
- Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Slovenia 

The project aims to determine common indicators for the scope and level of digitization of construction companies, building the capacities of construction associations at the chamber partners in the project and encouraging the digital transformation in construction in accordance with the technological trends of Construction 4.0.

Within the framework of the Project, it is planned to create a free online tool for displaying the degree of digitization of the construction companies in the three countries, according to the principle of self-assessment. The project is supported by the European Commission within the framework of the Erasmus+ program and is expected to deliver findings and a proposal set of indicators for digitization, which would serve construction companies, educational institutions, but also competent institutions in the process of issuing building permits. .

The results that will be delivered within the framework of the Project are expected to contribute to increasing the productivity of the construction sector and raising the average added value per employee in domestic construction companies to the level of the European Union average.

Activities defined in the DIG-IN-KPI Project are aimed at:

- Determination of criteria for assessing the degree of digitization of construction;
- Realization of interviews with companies and other stakeholders (vocational schools, competent institutions) in the context of meeting the established criteria for assessing the degree of digitization;
- Achieving cooperation with secondary vocational schools and competent institutions with the aim of consistent implementation of project activities and understanding the capacity and readiness of schools and institutions for digitization of construction;
- Identification of key indicators for the degree of digital performance of construction companies with a special focus on companies in the field of construction project performance;
- Identification of key indicators for the degree of digitization of construction companies through observation the use of modern digital tools such as building information modeling (BIM) in daily work and the readiness for their application in the future;
- Dissemination of the achieved results and benefits of the project at the national and regional level through the international organizations/associations where the chamber partners in the project are members.
- Developing a web application for measuring the degree of digitization of construction companies.
