The goal of the Information and Communications Technologies Policy Support Programme (ICT PSP) is to stimulate smart sustainable and inclusive growth by accelerating the wider implementation and best use of innovative digital technologies and content by citizens, governments and businesses. It provides EU funding to support the realization of the Digital Agenda for Europe.
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 addition to illustrating and validating the high value of digital technologies for the economy and society, it will foster the development of EU-wide markets for innovations enabling every company in Europe to benefit from the largest internal market in the world.
The ICT PSP covers technological and non-technological innovation that have moved beyond the final research demonstration phase. The ICT PSP does not support research activities; it may cover, when needed, technical adaptation and integration work in order to achieve the objectives.
