Digital Europe Programme (DIGITAL)
Information session on a preparatory action for the common European Green Deal Data Space under the Digital Europe Programme (DIGITAL)
his online session, organised by the European Commission - DG Connect and DG Environment - will provide information on the call for proposals to support the creation of a common European Green Deal data space.
This call for proposals has been launched on 17 November and is open until 22 February 2022 (EU Funding & Tender Portal).
The Green Deal is one of the strategic domains of public interest identified in the European Data Strategy for which a common European Data Space will be created. The EU Data Strategy ultimately aims at establishing a Single EU Market for data, where data can flow between countries and sectors and be accessed and used easily, respecting European values and rules.
The common European Green Deal data space will interconnect currently fragmented and dispersed data from various ecosystems, both for/from the private and public sectors, to support the objectives of the European Green Deal. It will offer an interoperable, trusted IT environment for data processing, and a set of rules of legislative, administrative and contractual nature that determine the rights of access to and use of the data.
The information session will present the Green Deal data space vision, the DIGITAL call for proposals as well as parallel horizontal activities, and it will provide a matchmaking opportunity for potential consortium partners. Participants will have the opportunity to make a 2 minutes pitch by signing up via the chat box.
It will take place online on 15 December 2021 from 10h00 to12h00.
