EU Funding for Sustainable Digital Innovation
Several public and private financial ventures and European funding programmes are allocated at national and international level to grant innovative projects underpinning the European Green Deal Goals and the Sustainable Development Goals.
Horizon Europe, the EU’s key research and innovation programme (2021-2027) dedicates over 35% of its budget to addressing climate change. Itfunds projects that develop new technologies and foster sustainability in key digital domains. The focus topics addressed within Horizon Europe are all-round, from a reliable assessment and reduction of the environmental footprint of the European Cloud-Edge-IoT Continuum to the evolution of 6G and the future telecommunication networks.
Have a look at the activities of the Digital for Planet Working Groups, where our members advance sustainability in four strategic ICT domains:
