The EU is to invest €9.2 billion in artificial intelligence (AI), supercomputing, cybersecurity, advanced digital skills and e-government, in the first dedicated funding programme in the field, Digital Europe.

The amount proposed by the Commission is intended to fill the current gaps in Europe’s digital capabilities, to match the goals set in EU’s Digital Single Market strategy and speed up the spread of digital technologies across Europe.
