Digital Europe Programme

Summary

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.

  • Reinforcing skills in semiconductors

    Closed

    Code: 29188 | Identifier Code: DIGITAL-2023-SKILLS-04-SEMICONDUCTORS | Programme name: Digital Europe Programme | Start submission calls: 11/05/2023 | End submission calls: 26/09/2023

    The share of students choosing semiconductors disciplines is too low to satisfy the demand required by the labour market. The shortage of employees with specific knowledge in semiconductors, and in particular the negligible share of students willing to undertake this field, has many different causes related to the low awareness of the impact of semiconductors in the society and citizens’ daily life, and too low expectations in terms of prospective career and employment conditions. The problem is acute, given the gap between the labour market demands and the unavailability of both technicians and high-level graduates, and it is even more exacerbated by a strong gender imbalance.

    A further effort is needed to increase the workforce, i.e., the number of graduated students and of technicians, and assure the acquired skills meet the job profiles required by industry.
