Management of open calls

We plan to maintain ~30% (12M Euro) of the project budget for distribution among new partners

New partners will be selected through Open Calls to allow for responding to emerging user requirements not identified at the start of the project, e.g.,

due to new usage areas, new technologies, new economic conditions

Specific component of the budget will be reserved for SMEs (aprox 30%) and Research Centers (aprox 30%)

Selection of new partners will be done according to the procedure issued by the Commission

  • Are you looking for built, completed solutions?

    • R/ We need to innovate, but we are also valuing existing results (software that works) and expertise. Integration is important.

  • Should we write a long, impact related document?
