The European Commission has launched, under CEF Digital (the Connecting Europe Facility programme, a call for Operational Digital Platforms that will be set up to boost the digitalisation of European transport and energy networks.

With the ultimate goal of achieving the EU’s environmental, energy and digitalisation targets by enabling a cyber-secure Internet of Energy and an optimised transport system along major European pathways, the support will be dedicated to retrofitting existing energy and transport infrastructures with a cross-border digital infrastructure.

The call aims to support a consortium where the three sectors (digital, energy and transport) will be represented and that is expected to perform several studies in order to identify possible digital services needed in energy and transport cross-border existing infrastructures.

The call is managed by HaDEA (the European Health and Digital Executive Agency).

The submission deadline for the CEF Digital Call for Proposals is 22 March 2022 at 17:00 CET.
