The Digital Europe Programme drives the digital transformation of Europe with 7.6 B€ and the first calls have just opened

Making a greener and more digital Europe is one of the biggest challenges for our generation. The Digital Europe Programme (DIGITAL) is a new funding programme from the European Union, which focuses to strategically fund the development and acceleration of European digital technologies to businesses, citizens and public administrations and support the recovery of the economy from the pandemic. With the opened and upcoming calls for proposals, that release the budget of 7.6 B€, there will be remarkable growth opportunities to small and mid-sized enterprises working on digital technologies as well as to organisations providing key technological capabilities and services.

We are highly dependent on digital technology and infrastructure to communicate, work, make progress in science and answer the environmental problems of our times. However, Europe can no longer be dependent on systems and solutions coming from outside our region, and the DIGITAL programme is aimed to pave the way to achieve this goal.

Spinverse Ecosystem Leader and Senior Project Manager Pentti Launonen says: ”The Digital Europe Programme will strengthen Europe´s digital sovereignty and support the digital transformation of the EU economy and its industrial ecosystems. The programme includes actions for reinforcing Europe´s critical digital capacities and deployment of digital technologies, developing key digital infrastructures, upskilling workforce, and creating safer digital spaces, services and markets”.

Overview
The goal of the DIGITAL programme is to accelerate the recovery of European economy and boost the digital transition of Europe. It extends to years from 2021 to 2027 and will support projects in five key areas, namely:
