The European Commission has recently launched an open consultation to evaluate the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) as part of its mid-term review. The CEF is a European funding programme for development of high-performing, sustainable and efficient interconnected trans-European networks in energy, telecommunications and transport. The CEF is used, among other purposes, to deploy and modernise broadband networks and Digital Service Infrastructures. The results of this consultation will be taken into account when revising the future goals of the CEF. The consultation is open until 27 February 2017.
