More interoperability, connectivity and deployment

CEF Telecom funding supports projects of common interest that contribute to increasing the interoperability, connectivity and deployment of trans-European digital infrastructures across the EU, improving the daily life of citizens, businesses and public administrations, and thereby contributing to the development of a Digital Single Market.


To receive co-funding under the calls, actions must be ready for deployment, contribute to EU Digital Single Market policies and have a long-term sustainability strategy. The funding will be allocated to those eligible proposals which best meet the award criteria as specified in the 2018 CEF Telecom Work Programme and call texts in the areas relevant to this call.

This call is the fourth under the 2018 CEF Telecom Work Programme. Interested applicants are invited to submit proposals by the deadline indicated below for actions supporting the deployment of European Digital Service Infrastructures, each with an indicative maximum budget as described below:
