Open Calls

New funding opportunities for active researchers and innovators in the Next Generation Internet arena will be made available soon via Open Calls (H2020 cascade funding) that will open beginning of 2019.

Through an agile and flexible process, NGI will provide support on third party projects from outstanding academic research groups, hi-tech startups and SMEs, so that multiple third parties will be funded in parallel contributing to the same research area, using short research cycles targeting the most promising ideas. Each of the selected third parties projects will pursue its own objectives, while the NGI Open Calls initiative will provide the programme logic and vision, the necessary technical support, as well as coaching and mentoring, in order that the collection of third party projects contributes towards a significant advancement and impact in the research domain.

The focus will be on advanced research that is linked to relevant use cases and that can be brought quickly to the market; applications and services that innovate without a research component are not covered by this model.

Stay tuned for more information. The 1st NGI Open Calls will be announced soon! Subscribe to our newsletter and you’ll be kept informed.

In the meanwhile, do not miss EC Calls and FED4FIRE+ Open Calls.
