New Digital Europe Programme Calls and Info Day

On 25th May 2023, the Digital Europe Programme (DEP) opened two Calls for Proposals: DIGITAL-ECCC-2022-CYBER-B-03 and DIGITAL-ECCC-2023-DEPLOY-CYBER-04. Both open calls are available on the NCC-MT website: ncc-mita.gov.mt/funding-calls/.

An Info Day on 1st June 2023 in the form of a webinar is being organised by the European Cybersecurity Competence Centre (ECCC) and powered by the European Cybersecurity Community project (ECCO).
