Supporting the trans-European deployment of the Information Society

he Community TEN-Telecom action aims at stimulating the market deployment of trans-European telecommunications applications and services of the Information Society in domains of public interest, which have a potential for viability and socio-economic benefits.

TEN-Telecom addresses priority areas for the benefit of citizens, enterprises and administrations such as healthcare, education and training, services to SMEs, transport and mobility, access to Europe’s culture heritage, environment and emergency management, city and regional networks. The trans-European dimension of the applications and services is supported by fixed, mobile and satellite networks and by their open interconnection in the global telecommunications networks.

The Community intervention aims at reducing the risk associated to the marketability phase inside the project life cycle, helping business plan finalisation for the investment decision, or the initial investment on the start-up market deployment.

Mature and well defined projects are considered, also derived from successful R&D results, and proposed by private-public partnerships. The next TEN-Telecom call for proposals will be published in March 2000.
