Organizations or consortia are invited to submit proposals falling into the areas below, as defined in the 1998 TEN-TELECOM work programme. These proposals should include, as necessary, a feasibility study (commercial validation phase) and a market deployment phase (construction and start-up).

Proposals should fall into one of the following sectors, which should be noted on the proposal:

Projects selected following this call will be funded in accordance with the trans-European networks (TENs) financial Regulation, which lays down general rules for the financing of all TENs projects. Funding may take the form of co-financing of studies, subsidies for loan interest, contributions towards loan guarantees or, in certain cases, direct grants. The indicative budget for this call is ECU 14 million to ECU 16 million.

An Information Day relating to this call will be held in Brussels, Belgium, on 1 April 1998.
