The programmes are:
- Main work programme: with a budget of €1.38 billion, it will focus on the areas of artificial intelligence (AI), cloud and data spaces, quantum communication infrastructure, advanced digital skills, and the wide use of digital technologies across the economy and society until the end of 2022
- First specific work programme: with a budget of €269 million until the end of 2022, focuses on funding in the area of cybersecurity
- Second specific work programme: with a budget of €329 million until the end of 2023, focuses on the set-up and operation of the network of European Digital Innovation Hubs.
The work programmes will be implemented mainly through grants and procurement procedures.
