Important corrigendum to reinforce the scope of the CEF Telecom Cyber Security call published

Creation date: October 1, 2018

An important corrigendum to the 2018-3 Cyber Security call text has been published on the call page.

What are the changes?

The corrigendum reinforces the scope of the call, which is intended to improve Cyber Security capabilities in the Member States and in particular transposition of the Security of Network and Information Systems Directive (Directive (EU) 2016/1148, the "NIS Directive"). The corrigendum extends the eligibility criteria of objectives 1 and 4, which are now open for submission also to national Computer Security Incident Response Teams (CSIRTs), National Competent Authorities (NCAs), and Single Points of Contact (SPOCs) that are in the process of being designated as such by the Member States in line with the NIS Directive.

In addition, the corrigendum clarifies the entities that can apply to Objective 5 of the Cyber Security call.

What to do if I have already sent an application

Applicants that have already introduced a draft proposal for the Cyber Security call in the TENTec submission will be contacted to inform them of this corrigendum.
