The calls are open to businesses, organisations, and public administrations from the EU Member States, EFTA/EEA countries, as well as entities from other countries associated to the Programme.
This funding will see an investment of over €249 million in several areas: data spaces, European blockchain infrastructure, training courses for advanced digital skills, digital solutions for better government services, projects piloting the use of artificial intelligence (AI) to fight crime, and AI testing facilities. The latter will test AI for manufacturing, food, health, and smart communities. Furthermore, an investment of €43 million worth of grants will support cybersecurity in the health sector and the deployment of a network of centres to help Member States implement relevant EU cybersecurity legislation.
The deadline for these calls will be 17 May 2022.
More information on the application for grants under this set of calls for proposals is available online.
Further calls under the Digital Europe Programme are expected to be published in the summer of 2022.
About Digital Europe ProgrammeDigital Europe Programme is the first EU programme that aims to accelerate the recovery and drive the digital transformation of Europe.
Worth €7.6 billion (in current prices), the Programme is a part of the next long-term EU budget, (the Multiannual Financial Framework), and it covers 2021 to 2027. It will provide funding for projects in five crucial areas: supercomputing, artificial intelligence, cybersecurity, advanced digital skills, and ensuring the wide use of digital technologies across the economy and society.
The Programme is fine-tuned to fill the gap between the research of digital technologies and their deployment, and to bring the results of research to the market - for the benefit of Europe's citizens and businesses, and in particular SMEs. Investments under the Digital Europe programme supports the Union’s twin objectives of a green transition and digital transformation and strengthens the Union’s resilience and strategic autonomy.
