European calls for projects

On this page, we provide information on European calls for projects relating to the European funding programs monitored by the Department of Media, Connectivity and Digital Policy as a member of the program committee.

The Department of Media, Connectivity and Digital Policy (SMC) plays this role in two European programs: (1) the Connecting Europe Facility, "Digital" section, and (2) the Digital Europe Programme.

Connecting Europe Facility - Digital

The European Union's Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) co-financing program supports the deployment of high-quality, sustainable infrastructure in the transport, energy and digital sectors, and aims to stimulate public and private investment.

The Department of Media, Connectivity and Digital Policy monitors the "Digital" component of the Connecting Europe Facility at European level, and also acts as the national contact point for this component.

The Connecting Europe Facility - Digital programme is implemented through multi-annual work programmes. The work programs can be accessed on the European Commission website. The first work programme for the period 2021 - 2023 consists of three calls for projects.
