Creation date: August 25, 2016
The evaluation of the second 2015 CEF Telecom call for proposals (CEF-TC-2015-2) has concluded and 32 projects in the areas of eHealth, eIdentification, eProcurement and Online Dispute Resolution have been selected to receive co-funding by the European Union. The €19.2 million of funding come from the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) programme in the sector of telecommunications.
CEF Telecom funding supports projects of common interest that will deploy Digital Service Infrastructures (DSIs) across the EU. These actions will contribute to enhancing networked cross-border services, to improving the daily lives of citizens, businesses and public administrations and to the development of a Digital Single Market
The Innovation and Networks Executive Agency (INEA) manages the calls for proposals and follows up the technical and financial implementation of the projects with the beneficiaries, providing technical expertise and high quality programme implementation.
About Digital Service Infrastructures (DSIs)
CEF Telecom funding supports projects of common interest for the deployment of Digital Service Infrastructures (DSIs) across the EU. These are based on mature technical and organisational solutions to support exchanges and collaboration between citizens, businesses and public authorities. The objective is to create European networks of digital services that will make the Digital Single Market work in practice.
CEF supports basic and re-usable digital services, known as building blocks, as well as more complex digital services. The building blocks can be combined with each other and integrated with the more complex services.
Building blocks supported so far include: eIdentification, eSignature, eInvoicing, eDelivery, and Automated Translation. Consult the full catalogue of reusable digital services.
More complex digital services being supported include areas such as safer internet, access to reusable public sector information, cyber security, eHealth, and the online dispute resolution.
