Commission opens Digital Europe Programme to Türkiye

The European Commission signed an association agreement for the Digital Europe Programme with Türkiye. Following the signatures, and upon the completion of the related ratification processes, the association agreement will enter into force. Businesses, public administrations and other eligible organisations in Türkiye will be able to access the calls of the Digital Europe Programme, a programme with an overall budget of €7.5 billion in the 2021-2027 period. 

In particular, participants from Türkiye will be able to take part in projects that deploy digital technologies across the EU in specific areas such as artificial intelligence, and advanced digital skills. They will also be able to set up Digital Innovation Hubs in Türkiye.

With this association agreement, the European Union and Türkiye will reinforce their strong links in the field of digital technologies – with potential benefits arising from Türkiye’s capabilities and assets in the areas covered by the Digital Europe Programme, including in AI.

The Commission also hopes to see Türkiye foster closer links to the EU economy and society, cooperate more on developing our technological capabilities and support digitalisation, in particular of small and medium-sized enterprises.


The Digital Europe Programme’s funds will complement funding available to Türkiye through other EU programmes such as Horizon Europe. The objectives and specific topic areas that are currently eligible for funding are detailed in the Work Programmes.

For more information, please consult the link on the Digital Europe Programme and how to apply for funding.
