Synergies between DIGITAL and the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) programmes

This webinar, organised by the European Commission (DG Connect in collaboration with DG Regio) on the 1st of February, provided guidance on the administrative aspects of the Synergy Programmes aimed to provide cumulative funding to European Digital Innovation Hubs (EDIH), funded by both DIGITAL and the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).

The first Call for European Digital Innovation Hubs (EDIHs) has resulted in over 130 contracts signed by the EU.  A second DIGITAL EDIH Call has been finalised which will complete the network of EDIHs.

Thanks to the recently developed synergy with the ERDF programmes, co-financing of the EDIHs by ERDF programmes is now possible, and implementation details have been outlined in an Interpretative Notice, “Notice on synergies between ERDF programmes and Horizon Europe”, Official Journal C 421 of 4 November 2022.

If you plan to use ERDF for the co-financing of EDIHs, this webinar will provide you with the information required to deal with the Synergy Grant process.
