About the event

Last February, the Council presidency and the European Parliament adopted the regulation establishing the Strategic Technologies for Europe Platform, a key common European action aimed at bolstering the EU industry and boosting investments in critical technologies in Europe. In  particular, STEP will steer resources across 11 EU programmes to finance projects that develop and manufacture critical technologies in three target investment areas: digital technologies and deep tech innovation, clean and resource efficient technologies, and biotechnologies. 

STEP will receive €1.5 billion of funding from the current Multiannual Financial Framework, that will exclusively be allocated through the European Defence Fund. In order to catalyze investments, the regulation identifies some financial incentives to channel cohesion policy funds towards the development of critical technologies. Moreover, under STEP, the Commission will promote a Sovereignty Seal to enhance the visibility of relevant projects and set up a Sovereignty Portal as a one-stop-shop on funding opportunities. 

This GIURI Open will delve into these crucial aspects of STEP and more, providing insights and clarity through discussions with policymakers from DG BUDG and other European Commission services responsible for STEP's implementation.
