5G Corridors Call 2: new selected projects to pave the way for CCAM

5G Corridors Call 2: new selected projects to pave the way for CCAM

8 December 2023

Following the first set of projects launched in 2023, funded under the Connecting Europe Facility Programme – Digital (CEF Digital), a second series of projects have been selected to co-fund 5G corridor infrastructure in 2024.

The resulting portfolio of 7 additional projects, which will receive EU funding under CEF Digital, will continue paving the way for Connected and Automated Mobility (CAM), including safety and non-safety services, be it for road, rail, inland waterways, or multimodal transport.

More specifically, the projects will support 5G infrastructure deployment over cross-border sections of 5G corridors and ensure service continuity when crossing said border, thus helping to connect different regions throughout Europe.

Three of these projects will start deploying the needed infrastructure straightaway, both active and passive, to enable CAM services to develop in the coming years. At the same time, 4 inception studies will prepare the groundwork for future large-scale 5G infrastructure deployment projects in view of upcoming CEF Digital Calls.

More information on these projects and studies can be found here.

third 5G Corridors call for deployment works and studies was launched on 17 October 2023 and will close on 20 February 2023.
