DEP New Calls

The 2nd wave of calls under the DIGITAL Europe Programme has been launched. The submission of applications will open on 22 February 2022.

The new round of calls includes one to support the creation of Advanced Digital Skills Short term training courses. This call aims to give the possibility to the current workforce to access trainings reflecting the latest developments in key capacity areas, such as microelectronics, Cybersecurity, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and other emerging technologies. 

These technologies evolve at such a fast pace that requires a constant update of the digital skills, also of the people already in employment. This investment will increase the number of men and women able to design, develop and deploy digital solutions in the economy and across sectors.

New opportunities to thrive in the digital transformation

The new calls address key issues to help citizens and businesses reap the full benefits of digital transformation, with a total budget available of EUR 87 million.

More in detail, the calls will cover six key topics:

  1. Data for Cultural Heritage
  2. Advanced Digital Skills Short term training courses
  3. European Blockchain Services Infrastructure – Deployment of services
  4. Blockchain Standardisation
  5. European Digital Identity Framework 
  6. Security (law enforcement)-AI based pilots. 

The submission of applications will open on 22 February 2022 and close on 17 May 2022.

Also, don't forget that there's still time to apply for the first three calls for proposals on Advanced Digital Skills under DIGITAL: the deadline for applications is 17:00h on 22 February 2022. Check our dedicated page on the Platform for further information!
