2013 European Call in the area of Smart Systems open
The European Commission published on 10th July 2012 a round of new calls for projects proposals, including ICT Call dedicated to the Smart Systems area. Deadline for submission of proposals is set on 15th January 2013.
In parallel to the publication of the ICT Work Programme 2013 defining the research priorities in order to improve the competitiveness of European industry and to enable Europe to master and shape future developments in ICT, the European Commission published notably a specific call for proposal in the ICT area (FP7-ICT-2013-10) adressing all challenges defined in the Work Programme.
Smart Systems are definitely one of the topics called in particular under Challenge 3 "Alternative Paths to Components and Systems", objectives 3.3 "Heterogeneous Integration and take-up of Key Enabling Technologies for Components and Systems" and 3.4 "Advanced Computing, embedded and Control Systems".
As this call may represent a big challenge for the Miniaturised Smart Systems community but also offers a great opportunities to set up new market-driven projects with relevant business case, COWIN is particularly active in supporting to the community with individual support and expertise as well as best practices in order to favorise the emergence of successful proposals for this call.
Therfore, COWIN is organising two main events in order to provide the Smart Systems community with adequate support:
- The online tutorial (webinar) "Get prepared for the upcoming FP7 Call in Smart Systems" on 13th September at 13:00 aiming at presenting in details new call but also the EC projects selection process and criteria as well as giving best practices on writing a good proposal. More info here.
- The COWIN Marketplace during the EPoSS Forum 2012 on 26th to 28th September 2012 in Paris aiming at building up successful proposals and business cases, meeting best partners and getting latest information. More info here.
Get ready for the upcoming FP7-ICT Call 10 on Smart Systems!
