eContentplus Program

The European Parliament and the Council approved the eContentplus Program, a multiannual Community program to make digital content in
Europe more accessible, usable and exploitable. The 4-year program (2005–08), proposed by the European Commission, will have a budget of € 149 million. The Programme addresses specific market areas where development has been slow: geographic content, educational content, cultural, scientific and scholarly content.  A new call for proposals will be launched under the eContentplus programme in 2006. The provisional date for publication is end of June. The provisional deadline for receipt of proposals will be beginning of October 2006. See
