SECURE EU FUNDING
FOR YOUR DIGITAL JOURNEY
The European Union (EU) is helping its members go digital with billions of euros in funding – even for you. The goal is to make governments smarter and transform both the public sector and private business for a sustainable digital future. We help you apply for EU funding so that you can benefit too.
Enormous investments are needed to help Europe succeed on its digital journey. This includes the demand side: According to a recent study, 85 percent of small and medium-sized businesses in the EU are still not using a modern cloud service, and 60 percent of nine-year-olds are currently taught in schools that are not digitally equipped (source: BCG/Etno, 2021). To ensure competitiveness on the global stage and get the most out of digitalization, the EU is therefore providing support to businesses and governments with medium and long-term funding programs (see table further below): from the Recovery & Resilience Facility program (RRF) focused on the digital and green transition of the public sector and companies, to Cohesion Funds (CEF) for rolling out very high capacity 5G networks, and Just Transition Funds (JTF) for supporting the green transition in the most affected regions. As the selection process to determine which projects receive funding depends on many different factors, you need professional expertise to give your application the best chance of success. We therefore analyze your options and support your business in finding the EU funding that fits your needs. Our expertise also ensures that you get the most out of our innovative and digital services.
WITH EU FUNDING
A successful digital journey is just theory without the right networks and digital infrastructure. Benefit from our consulting services for digital transformation and get comprehensive support in searching, finding, and applying for relevant EU funding.
Digital-ready governments will shape the future of people, cities, and nations. EU funding is available to help you progress, particularly in areas such as public e-services, digital healthcare services, digital equipment in schools, smart transport and energy, cybersecurity, and the digital transformation of businesses. EU funding together with the digital experience of Telekom Business can help governments all across Europe seize the initiative and realize their visions.
According to the BCG/Etno study, it would take 26 billion euros per year to digitalize all European SMEs – equivalent to 3.5 percent of the NextGenerationEU Fund. The European telecom sector is currently undergoing a transformation in seven main areas: networks, new models of collaboration, the next generation of B2B purchasing, data-driven customer engagement, radical simplification, and new ways of working. We provide support, e.g. with the help of the EU’s RFF budget reserved for small and medium-sized businesses, to help drive innovative services such as cloud, data-based platforms, and a wide range of digital technologies for the IoT, communication services, and more.
