The CIP ICT Committee has recently approved the draft ICT PSP Work Programme 2012. The ICT PSP supports the realisation of European policies and in particular the Digital agenda for Europe and is aligned with its priorities. The programme addresses obstacles hindering further and better use of ICT based products and services and barriers for the development of high growth businesses, notably SMEs, in this field.
In order to optimise the impact of Union support, funding is concentrated on a limited number of themes and objectives. WP 2012 focuses on 5 themes:
– ICT for "smart" cities
– Digital content, open data and creativity
– ICT for health, ageing well and inclusion
– Innovative government and public services
– Trusted eServices and other actions
The 6th ICT PSP Call for Proposal is expected to open from 1 February to 15 May 2012. An information day on Call 6 is foreseen the 3 February 2012. Confirmation of the date, the exact venue and the draft agenda will be published during this week on the ICT PSP website.
