CEF Telecom Public Open Data Call is open!

€5 million funding available for proposals in CEF Telecom Public Open Data until 14 November 2019

The Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) has launched a call for proposals to improve the interoperability and interconnectivity of the European digital service ecosystem. CEF Telecom funding aims to:

  • support projects that seek to improve citizens' daily life,
  • improve business and public administrations, and
  • contribute to the development of a Digital Single Market by deploying European digital infrastructure across the EU.

Concretely, the 2019 CEF Telecom Public Open Data call (CEF-TC-2018-5) makes € 5 million of funding available for proposals in the area of open data. The deadline for submission is 14 November 2019. Proposals will be evaluated until February 2020 and grant agreements are expected to enter into force from May 2020 onwards.

There is a dedicated LinkedIn group that serves as an informal meeting place where public and private entities interested in creating a consortium to apply for grant funding can meet and connect.
