eTEN is the European Community Programme designed to help the deployment of telecommunication networks based services (e-services) with a trans-European dimension. It focuses strongly on public services, particularly in areas where Europe has a competitive advantage. A call for proposals under this programme has just been launched. The call solicits proposals for validating and/or deploying transnational e-services in the common interest in the areas of eGovernment, eHealth, eInclusion, eLearning, Trust and Security and Services for SMEs. Information days related to the call for proposals will be organised in Brussels and many Member States.
