Amended Digital Europe work programmes 2024 published

The European Commission has published the amended version of its Digital Europe work programmes, detailing its plans for 2024.

The amended Main Work Programme with a budget of nearly € 549 million for 2024 focuses on AI, data & cloud (Specific Objective (SO) 2), Advanced digital skills (SO 4) and Deployment and best use of digital technologies (SO 5). More than half of the budget will be dedicated to ensuring the evolution and continuation of activities started previously under the programme. Another significant share of the budget will be dedicated to supporting the implementation of Digital Decade multi-country projects (MCPs), including opportunities for European Digital Infrastructure Consortia (EDICs).

The amended Cybersecurity Work Programme foresees a budget of €214 million for 2024 and will focus on cyber threat detection, implementation of cybersecurity EU legislation, emergency preparedness and mutual assistance in case of cyber attacks, as well as national coordination centres.

The next calls under the work programmes for 2024 are expected to open in early 2024.

Calls that are currently open for submission can be found on the Funding & Tenders Portal.

RUSTICA - Converting organic residues into bio-based fertiliser products

The RUSTICA project obtained funding under Horizon 2020, more in particular under the topic ‘Closing nutrient cycles’.  RUSTICA focuses on demonstration and implementation of circular bio-based nutrient valorisation chains, focusing on waste from the fruit and vegetable agro-food system. The project kicked off in 2021 and will run until 2024. It will use a strong multi-actor approach to co-create both socio-economic and technological knowledge in four case study regions in Europe and one in Colombia. The Flanders-based company DRANCO is one of the project partners and acts as technical project manager for the entire project. DRANCO participates in the project to develop its own technologies, to network and to help make the transition to a more circular based economy.
