The EU provides multiple sources and instruments of financing broadband projects. The EUs financial support for broadband will even increase over the next years: the new Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) starting in 2014 will provide an additional significant source of funding for broadband projects. Concurrently, in 2013, the European Commission adopts the new State Aid Guidelines for Broadband. These guidelines have to be taken into consideration while assessing whether State aid for broadband is admissible. The comprehension of the changes in the Guidelines is absolutely necessary to ensure approval of funding applications.
At this seminar attendees will benefit from the first-hand knowledge of leading European experts from the following key institutions and organisations:
Broadband Unit, DG CONNECT, European Commission
State Aids Unit, DG Competition, European Commission
Projects Directorate, European Investment Bank
ERDF Funded Project Superfast North Yorkshire, United Kingdom
Swedish Board of Agriculture, Managing Authority for EAFRD, Sweden
EAFRD Funded Project Broadband for All, Ministry of Transport and Communications, Finland.
Participants will learn among others:
What are the current and future EU funding instruments available for broadband projects
How to successfully apply for these financing opportunities now or beyond 2013 and how to avoid typical pitfalls in the application process
What are the practical challenges that can occur during the projects implementation
How to meet the requirements set up in the new State aid Guidelines for Broadband and how to receive approval for State aid
