Grab the Fed4FIRE+ funding opportunities

Fed4FIRE+, the largest federation worldwide of Next Generation Internet (NGI) testbeds, has published the 8th Fed4FIRE+ Open Call, which invites proposals for medium experiments exploiting the Fed4FIRE+ testbed infrastructure for up to five months.

The major objective of this Call is to make Fed4FIRE+’s federated infrastructure directly available for the execution of innovative experiments by experimenters at both industrial (including SMEs) and research organisations. Examples of such experiments may include, but are not limited to, testing of new protocols or algorithms, performance measurements or scalability testing. To widen the reach of the potential proposers, this call has no specific theme: it invites experiments testing, implementing or optimising existing products or services on the Fed4FIRE+ testbeds. The maximum budget per experiment is € 55,000 and a maximum of four experiments will be funded by this Call.

Submission deadlines: feasibility check on 15 September 2020 followed by the final deadline on 22 September 2020. Learn more on the Call & submission procedure here.
