Non-structural EU Programmes for Information Society Development

The decription of non-structural EU programmes: CIP ICT PSP and SaferInternetPlus 


Programme CIP (Competitiveness and Innovation Programme) is a European Non-structural Programme that aims to to encourage the competitiveness of European enterprises. The programme is scheduled for the period of 2007-2013 and it is divided into three sections:

  • The Entrepreneurship and Innovation Programme (EIP)
  • The ICT Policy Support Programme (ICT PSP)
  • The Intelligent Energy-Europe Programme (IEEP)

The Ministry of Interior is responsible for the second section called „ICT Policy Support Programme“ (CIP ICT PSP). Programme ICT PSP started in 2007 by the 1st call for proposals. In 2008, it continued by the 2nd call for proposals with the deadline on the 9 September 2008. European Commission is currently finishing the evaluation of the projects from the 2nd call and the contracts signatures are planned for the beginning of the year 2009. In February 2009, the European commission will launch the 3rd call for proposals with expected deadline in June 2009.

The CIP ICT Policy Support Programme is closely linked to the EU initiative „i2010 - A European Information Society for growth and employment“ which aims to create a Single European Information Space, to strenghten investment and innovation in ICT Research, and to support inclusion, better public services and quality of life through the use of ICT.

The Work Programme of ICT PSP for 2009 is currently under preparation and it is expected to be approved in December 2008.
