Digital 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.
The objective is to support through grants actions that reinforce the EBSI infrastructure and the EBP use cases. This will engage a large range of European actors in actions related to EBSI and EBP priorities.
This part concern all the EBSI actions for 2021-22, that are implemented through call for proposals. It will support the roll out of the EBSI by contributing to the deployment of nodes in all Member States enhancing the performance and robustness of EBSI, and to the implementation of local support services (help desk, information and training activities for local authorities, citizens etc.). It will support as well as the deployment of the cross-border use cases already selected by EBP.
