5G for Smart Communities: first wave of projects selected for co-funding 5G connectivity infrastructures

Following the first Connecting Europe Facility – Digital (CEF Digital) call for proposals at the beginning of 2022, the Commission selected seven projects that will deploy 5G connectivity and enable innovative use cases for public services and services of general interest.

The first call for proposal under the CEF Digital programme, resulted into a portfolio of projects  that will receive EU funding to support safe, secure and sustainable high-performance infrastructure.

Seven of these projects will exploit the capabilities of 5G networks to deliver new, efficient and more resilient public services in 5 European countries: Belgium, Italy, France, Germany and Hungary. More specifically, they aim to deliver 5G and innovative services to EU citizens in sectors ranging from agriculture to public safety, healthcare, education, emergency and smart city services.

A second 5G for Smart Communities call is currently open until the 23rd February.
