Information of Upcoming Calls: 

  • ERC Synergy Grants — The aim is to provide support for a small group of two to four Principal Investigators to jointly address ambitious research problems that could not be addressed by the individual Principal Investigators and their teams working alone. Synergy projects should enable substantial advances at the frontiers of knowledge, stemming, for example, from the cross-fertilization of scientific fields, from new productive lines of enquiry, or new methods and techniques, including unconventional approaches and investigations at the interface between established disciplines.
    Deadline: Nov 10, 2021
  • Women TechEU — Support deep tech innovation as a basis for a modern, knowledge-driven, resource-efficient and competitive economy; Promote female leadership in the deep tech industry to build fairer, more inclusive, and more prosperous innovation ecosystems in Europe.
    Deadline: Nov 10, 2021
  • Scaling up deep tech ecosystems —  The aim of the action is to explore how to fully utilise and build on the experience and knowledge of existing or previous relevant initiatives at pan-European and, where appropriate national or sub-national level, that have exploited the ecosystem-building potential of interactions with industry during the construction, operation and upgrading of research infrastructures
    Deadline: Nov 10, 2021.
  • Expanding Acceleration Ecosystems — Incubators, accelerators and different types of ‘company-builders’ play a crucial role in providing start-ups with growth support. Due to the diverse innovation landscape in Europe, start-ups from better-connected innovation ecosystems benefit from more local accelerators with greater funding opportunities and more qualified business support services compared to their counterparts elsewhere.
    Deadline: Nov 10, 2021
  • European Co-development — The European co-development shall provide support to the development of a single project for commercial exploitation intended for cinema release, television broadcasting or commercial exploitation on digital platforms or a multi-platform environment in the following categories: animation, creative documentary or fiction. The project must be co-developed by at least two European independent production companies, having signed a co-development agreement specifying the division of tasks and the collaboration on creative aspects.
    Deadline: Nov 17, 2021
  • DAPSI Open Call III — DAPSI offers a total of EUR 5,6M in equity-free funding in three open calls to internet innovators to develop technology solutions and services in the Data Portability field. You will participate in a 2-stage programme. Each selected project can receive a cash investment of up to €150.000*, tailored technical and business resources, access to top infrastructure and much more.
    Deadline: Nov 23, 2021
  • Knowledge Networks for Security Research & Innovation — Innovation uptake is not a linear process, and even less a single-step process that happens only at the end of a research project and it is not automatically enabled by a successful research result. The innovation uptake process begins with the identification of a need and ends with an innovative solution deployed on the field of operations, being R&I only one of the many contributors to the overall process, but not the first and not the last. In other words, successful results of research projects are a necessary but not sufficient condition to guarantee the uptake of innovation.
    Deadline: Nov 23, 2021
  • Disinformation and fake news are combated and trust in the digital world is raised — Combating disinformation and fake news with implications for security is an important aspect where modern information analysis is needed. Bots are increasingly used to manipulate the public opinion and spread fake news on the internet. Causing a mass panic by spreading fake news is one example. Dimensions of this problem increase even more in crisis situations, such as the COVID-19 lockdown, where spreading disinformation and fake news, by infusing uncertainty and fear, aims at harming people’s life, intensifying the crisis situations, weakening the European societies and aggravating the divisions.
    Deadline: Nov 23, 2021
  • Social Economy Missions for community resilience — The general objective of the topic “Social Economy Missions for community resilience” is to co-fund projects, which will build resilience and increase the capacity of regional or local public administrations, social economy SMEs and civil society to overcome difficulties and crises. The call will support building local resilience through: a) transnational and inter-regional peer-learning and collaboration in the field of social economy, b) developing social economy local action plans with the cooperation of social economy stakeholders and c) formulating recommendations to be potentially replicable in other parts of Europe.
    Deadline: Nov 24, 2021
  • Local Green Deals — In order to contribute to the European Green Deal objectives of climate-neutrality, sustainability, prosperity and inclusiveness and in parallel develop more sustainable regional or local strategies and resilient business models, SMEs and companies will have to undergo a rapid and radical transformation and come up with creative, sustainable and collaborative solutions.
    Deadline: Nov 24, 2021
