Innovation and Networks Executive Agency


€1.04 billion is made available for the telecommunications sector under the CEF programme for 2014-2020. Part of the funding under the CEF is expected to be made in the form of grants allocated following competitive calls for proposals. INEA manages these calls for the deployment of a set of generic services linking national infrastructure to the core service platforms across the EU. The process of allocation of EU financial support in the form of grants is explained in the how to apply section.
