The European Health and Digital Executive Agency (HaDEA) manages 58 projects, selected through competitive calls for proposals launched in 2021 and 2022, receiving over €118 million in funding.

  • European Digital Media Observatory (EDMO) - national and multinational hubs: fact-checking and tackling disinformation.
  • Safer Internet centres (SICs): online safety resources, including educational materials and awareness campaigns promoting safer internet for children and young people.
  • e-Justice Communication via online data exchange (e-CODEX): secure and decentralised communication network between national IT systems in cross-border civil and criminal proceedings.
  • Digital Product Passport (DPP): implementation of the New Circular Economy Action Plan through the development of a digital record of a unique product’s complete life cycle and through storing key traceability data about the product.
  • Advanced digital skills: support to excellence in educational institutions and the development of advanced ICT skills through specialised and short-term training.
