ICT

The main objective of the ICT Work Group is to provide a platform for members that helps to inform about important European Initiatives, Strategies and funding programs related to ICT topics and their regional dimension. This platform is equally meant to create opportunities for interregional cooperation in the ICT area crosscutting with other areas.  

We will invest in links and synergies with other topics and ERRIN WGs. In preparation of the new funding period from 2021 on we will continue dialogue with different DGs to talk about the proposed funding programs Horizon Europe and Digital Europe as well as European initiatives to facilitate the participation of our regional stakeholders.
