The MDIA was established back in 2018 through the Malta Digital Innovation Authority Act, together with the Innovative Technology Arrangements and Services Act, that states what are the powers granted to the Authority.

The Authority serves a dual role. On the one hand, it is a regulator specifically focused on innovative technology and forms part of the entities strategically established in the Maltese ecosystem. On the other, it is also a promoter of innovative technologies. This is done through various incentives that are announced from time to time.
