Funding opportunities for 5G in CEF

Published on | 2 months ago

Programmes Digital, Industry & Space  

The CEF2 Digital programme will grant funds for the rapid deployment and take up of 5G for smart communities and innovative applications.

Examples of 5G in smart communities

In healthcare, 5G-connected hospitals or ambulances can help monitor patients, make early diagnostics, and enable personalised medical advice and treatment.

In education, 5G in underserved areas will allow students to take part in classes from remote locations with virtual and augmented reality, allowing for increased interaction and making lessons more efficient and fun. The technology has the potential of spreading online learning, which has become more and more common during the pandemic.

CEF Funding

The Commission launched a call as part of CEF Digital in January 2022. It will select projects that constitute examples of concrete 5G use cases and that have the potential of sparking incentive for future 5G-based application developments in different sectors.

The details of the new call topic are expected to appear within a week or so. You can already check some of the call topics of the first wave for inspiration.

More information will be given during the matchmaking event on Sep 20.
