Digital Europe is a EU funding programme focused on building the strategic digital capacities of the EU and on facilitating the wide deployment of digital technologies, bringing them to businesses, citizens and public administrations.

The Programme aims to strengthen investments in supercomputing, Artificial Intelligence (AI), cybersecurity, advanced digital skills, and ensuring a wide use of digital capacity across the economy and society. Its overall goal is to boost Europe’s competitiveness and the green transition towards climate neutrality by 2050 as well as ensure technological sovereignty.

With a planned overall budget of €7.5 billion (in current prices), the programme will accelerate the economic recovery and shape the digital transformation of Europe’s society and economy, bringing benefits to everyone, but in particular to small and medium-sized enterprises.
