To foster the digital transition of the EU, the European Commission has established several funding programmes: the Digital Europe Programme, the Connecting Europe Facility, and Horizon Europe. They cover a wide range of areas, including: the deployment of digital connectivity infrastructures (under the Connecting Europe Facility), digital technologies and the building of digital capacities (under the Digital Europe Programme), and research and innovation projects that develop the next generation of core digital technologies (under the Horizon Europe).

HaDEA’s representatives, together with representatives of five HaDEA-managed projects will be present at the conference to inform potential applicants about the EU funding opportunities under these programmes and encourage them to apply.

HaDEA’s representatives will be present at the booth E265 in the Pavillion 2. Find our booth to learn more about the specificities of HaDEA programmes, available funding, and requirements for applicants.
