Call for Proposals: CEF Telecom Call - Europeana open until 28 November 2017

To increase the interoperability, connectivity and deployment of trans-European digital infrastructures across the EU, the European Commission opened a call to work towards the Digital Service Infrastructures (DSIs).

A total of 24 million euro are allocated for the four areas of eInvoicing, eTranslation, Europeana and Public Open Data. The goal is to foster developments that improve the daily lives of citizens, businesses and public administrations, and thereby contribute to the development of a Digital Single Market.

2 million euro are made available for projects relating to Europeana.
