Task description

Viability Assessment Projects (VAPs) are a comprehensive, balanced and coherent set of preliminary technical, market, legal and socioeconomic assessments intended to validate the viability of an international, innovative business solution along emerging global value chains. Each VAP must focus on a target third country as pilot market wherein to develop and validate the proposed innovative business solution, in close collaboration with local counterparts1.

VAPs should also identify and assess key local technical and market framework conditions in the target third country that may favour or impede the effective deployment of the proposed innovative collaborative solution2.

VAPs also include a refined and viable definition of such innovative business solutions, together with their implementation strategies in the target third country, including the preparatory phase of a future collaborative RTDI project underpinning the product development3 stage.

Beneficiaries must be individual SMEs, including young companies and start-ups, from any sector engaged in an economic activity and owning sufficient technological and internationalization capacities looking to compete and start or further develop innovative business in new and emerging markets around the world. They must be established in an EU Member State or a Horizon 2020 Associated Country4 and meet financial viability and ethical criteria specified in the INNOWWIDE guidelines.

1 At least one local technical counterpart (supplier, customer, research provider, complementary technology developer etc.) must be subcontracted for VAP implementation. It must help with VAP product development preparatory activities, Other non-strategic local subcontractors, i.e. conventional service providers, are also allowed for VAP implementation if needed and duly justified (e.g. innovation and/or market consultants, legal advisors etc.). EU or Associated States subcontractors will be allowed only for minor tasks. For long term purposes beyond VAP implementation other kind of EU and/or local counterparts or business collaborations may be envisaged (RTDI partners, distributors, dealers, facilitators etc.)
2 VAPs are only intended for innovation-based international product-market developments, Business-as-usual approaches will not be accepted
3 Product development must be understood in the widest sense, i.e. product / service / process development

TETRAMAX and types of activities

Today's European industries are challenged by the fast developing digitalisation era, making it increasingly difficult for small and medium-size enterprises (SMEs) to keep track with, and benefit from, modern ICT for their business and production cycles.

The innovation action TETRAMAX aims to boost innovation by stimulating, organising and evaluating different kinds of Technology Transfer Experiments (TTX). These co-funded "application experiments" connect SMEs and other for-profit companies (mid-caps, large industry, etc.) with international academics, resulting in low-risk industrial adoption of novel computing technologies. TETRAMAX provides innovative advanced digital technologies for novel electronic and non-electronic products in the area of Customised Low-Energy Computing (CLEC) for Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) and the Internet of Things (IoT) (Annex 1).

Additionally, building and leveraging a European Technology Brokerage Network (CCN) on CLEC will increase the exchange of technologies and solutions, hence increasing the opportunities for technology transfers. In the long term, TETRAMAX will be the trailblazer towards a reinforced, profitable, and sustainable ecosystem infrastructure, providing CLEC competence, services and a continuous innovation stream at European scale, yet with strong regional presence as preferred by SMEs.

TETRAMAX is one of the new initiatives established under the European Smart Anything Everywhere (SAE) initiative, which seeks to accelerate innovation within European industries.

Goal of a Bilateral TTX

During a bilateral TTX, one academic partner (publicly funded, university or research institution) based in an EU member state or a country associated to H2020 transfers a particular novel HW or SW technology in the domain of CLEC for CPS and IoT to a receiving industry partner (privately funded, preferably an SME, or other for-profit company (mid-cap or large industry)) from a different EU member state or a country associated to H2020. Only in well justified cases, both partners can be SMEs, which means that one SME partner is the technology provider and the other SME partner is the technology receiver.

The receiving partner adopts and deploys this technology to enable improved products or processes (e.g. by gains concerning product cost, performance, or power consumption). Thereby, the technology receiver will achieve innovation and measurable impact, e.g. in terms of increased revenue or newly created jobs.

Additional information

Building resilience while achieving and sustaining world-class levels of performance and innovation requires an integrated approach to investment in new technologies, skills and empowering workplace practices. Workplace innovation is about the systematic adoption of workplace practices, grounded in evidence, that unleash employee-led knowledge, skill and innovation at every level of the organisation, and is recognised as one further method to help retain and ultimately increase employment.

Evidence shows that workplace innovation leads to significant and sustainable improvements both in organisational performance (e.g. increased productivity, financial performance and profitability, and improved customer service), and in employee engagement and well-being (playing a particularly important role in reducing stress, enhancing job satisfaction and mental health, and improving retention).

These benefits are only fully realised when workplace innovation practices run throughout the entire company including individual learning and discretion, self-managed teams, open and fluid organisational structures, delegated decision-making, simplified administrative procedures, a coaching style of line management, regular opportunities for reflection, learning and improvement, high involvement innovation, entrepreneurial behaviour at all levels, and employee representation in strategic decisions. Transformative changes in performance and working life can be achieved when senior teams, line managers and employee representatives share a common understanding of workplace innovation and a commitment to making it happen. One of the most significant causes of failure in trying to create high performance and fantastic places to work is partial change – not recognising that organisations consist of interdependent parts which either nurture or obliterate innovative ways of working.

Our approach offers a practical, evidence-based approach to understanding workplace innovation and its impact on performance and working life. Such outcomes are not the product of a simple initiative or a leadership development programme. They are only found when four basic building blocks are in place and combine to create surprising synergies:

  1. Jobs, Teams and Technology;
  2. Organisational Structures, Management and Processes;
  3. Employee Driven Improvement and Innovation;
  4. Co-Created Leadership and Employee Voice.

Additional information:

NGI0 PET, co-funded from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 825310, foresees as an eligible activity the provision of financial support to third parties, as a means to achieve the objectives of the Next Generation Internet initiative and to contribute to a resilient, trustworthy and sustainably open internet.

Reliability, confidentiality, integrity and security should be the 'new normal' of the internet, something ordinary users should not have to worry about. Trust (or rather trustworthiness) is one of the key drivers for the Next Generation Internet initiative, and an adequate level of privacy is a non-negotiable requirement for that. NGI0 PET aims to assist independent researchers and developers to create powerful new technology that benefit end users, and to help them put it in the hands of future generations as building blocks for a fair and democratic society and an open economy that benefits all. This concerns any technological component internet users collectively depend on, and which can be improved with regards to trustworthiness and privacy preserving characteristics. Examples include open hardware, internet and web protocols, operating system security, encryption tools and services. We are looking for new ideas and core technologies that help society tackle hard but very very important questions, each of which has significant social and economic consequences. The project results become available under an open source license, so anyone can read and validate the source code, and anyone can use the code to create technology that fits their own purposes.

The following types of activities qualify for financial support, provided they are cost effective and have a clear link to the topics directly relevant to NGI0 PET mentioned above - privacy and trust enhancing technologies - and the objectives set out in the call:

  • scientific research
  • design and development of open source software and open hardware
  • validation or constructive inquiry into existing or novel technical solutions
  • software engineering aimed at adapting to new usage areas or improving software quality
  • formal security proofs, security audits, setup and design of software testing and continuous integration
  • documentation for researchers, developers and end users
  • standardisation activities, including membership fees of standards bodies
  • understanding user requirements and improving usability/inclusive design
  • necessary measures in support of (broad)er deployability, e.g. packaging
  • participation in technical, developer and community events like hackathons, IETF, W3C, RIPE meetings, FOSDEM, etc. (admission fee, travel and subsistence costs)
  • other activities that are relevant to adhering to robust software development and deployment practices
  • project management
  • out-of-pocket costs for infrastructure essential to achieving the above

Project proposals should be in line with the NGI vision and the topic of privacy and trust enhancing technologies. They should have research and development as their primary objective, and should be complete and concise (no longer than two pages for the main application). Proposals should have a clear European dimension.

We are looking for new ideas and core technologies that help society tackle hard but very very important questions, each of which has significant social and economic consequences. The project results become available under an open source license, so anyone can read and validate the source code, and anyone can use the code to create technology that fits their own purposes.

The following types of activities qualify for financial support, provided they are cost effective and have a clear link to the topics directly relevant to NGI0 PET mentioned above - privacy and trust enhancing technologies - and the objectives set out in the call:

  • scientific research
  • design and development of open source software and open hardware
  • validation or constructive inquiry into existing or novel technical solutions
  • software engineering aimed at adapting to new usage areas or improving software quality
  • formal security proofs, security audits, setup and design of software testing and continuous integration
  • documentation for researchers, developers and end users
  • standardisation activities, including membership fees of standards bodies
  • understanding user requirements and improving usability/inclusive design
  • necessary measures in support of (broad)er deployability, e.g. packaging
  • participation in technical, developer and community events like hackathons, IETF, W3C, RIPE meetings, FOSDEM, etc. (admission fee, travel and subsistence costs)
  • other activities that are relevant to adhering to robust software development and deployment practices
  • project management
  • out-of-pocket costs for infrastructure essential to achieving the above

Project proposals should be in line with the NGI vision and the topic of privacy and trust enhancing technologies. They should have research and development as their primary objective, and should be complete and concise (no longer than two pages for the main application).

Task description

KET4CleanProduction is a coordination and support action (CSA) funded by the European Union's Horizon 2020 programme. The project fosters the use of advanced manufacturing technologies and related key enabling technologies (KETs) by small and medium-sized enterprises (SME) to upgrade their production processes towards resource- and energy efficiency. To support this goal, the project aims to create an open innovation ecosystem with a one-stop-shop web platform and has an open call for proposals for financial support (€50 000 per SME) to

  • facilitate the access of manufacturing SMEs to technology services and facilities for clean production innovation and
  • enable cross-border cooperation with two international KET Technology Centres in clean production.

The call is open to all SMEs located in one of the EU member states or H2020 associated countries[1]. SME applicants from the United Kingdom (UK) should be aware about the possible effect on their KET4CleanProduction micro grants depending on the UK exit scenario from the European Union: In the case of a no deal exit, for example, no proposals can be accepted and micro grants paid to UK applicants anymore, as the KET4CleanProduction call is limited to EU member states and H2020 associated countries.

The applicant SME must be a single company (not in a consortium) and active in the manufacturing sector. Manufacturing comprises the physical or chemical transformation of materials, substances, or components into new products. This includes many different sectors ranging from machinery and equipment to automotive, chemical industry, medical, healthcare, transportation, food etc. (all activities included in NACE Rev. 2 Section C[2]).
A cross-border project requires one SME and two KET Technology Centres from at least two different EU member states. Eligible KET Technology Centres are defined as being registered (1) on the KET TC mapping by the European Commission's DG Growth and (2) on the KET4CP mapping.

The types of activities that qualify for receiving financial support have to focus on the integration of advanced manufacturing technologies and combination with multi-KETs seeking one or several of the following clean production objectives (or a related objective specified by the applicant):

  • the development of new production processes;
  • the improvement of the manufacturing of existing products by reducing production costs;
  • the improvement of the manufacturing of existing products by reducing the reliance on raw materials
  • the improvement of the manufacturing of existing products and by reducing the consumption of energy during the whole life cycle of products;
  • the diminution of the adverse impacts on the environment by reducing the generation of waste and pollution emission.

A micro grant proposal form can be submitted at any time while the call for proposals is open until 29 April 2020 or until the maximum funding capacity of the project is reached. Proposals are evaluated by an external evaluation board every three months, at distinct cut-off dates, with the first one being on 31 July 2018. Proposals will be evaluated as submitted after each cut-off date: No additions or changes in the micro grant proposal will be considered after the submission. By accepting the micro grant, the applicant SME commits to providing an implementation report and feedback on the supported activities.

Applications should be made via https:/www.ket4sme.eu/micro-grants following the steps described in the "Guide for Applicants". The KET4CleanProduction consortium can be contacted via e-mail (info@ket4sme.eu) or the contact form.

Project description:

The European Social Catalyst Fund (ESCF) is a new initiative designed to have significant impact on some of Europe’s most pressing social challenges. The objective of the ESCF is to bring together public and private resources to improve social services to enable people who need support to live as valued and participating members of their communities.

The ESCF will provide financial and capacity building support to develop plans to scale proven social service innovations. It is anticipated that these plans will provide details of how public and private resources (philanthropy and/or social investment) can be brought together in a range of collaborations to help re-focus public spending in a more effective direction in the interest of European citizens. It is intended that during the project a further phase will be designed, based on learning obtained, which will include a focus on supporting implementation of plans to scale proven social service innovations.

The ESCF has been established and co-funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme, Genio, the Robert Bosch Stiftung and the King Baudouin Foundation. It will award planning grants across a range of priority social challenge areas within, or across, European Union Member States. The purpose of the grants is to support the development of detailed implementation plans aimed at reducing, or overcoming, social challenges. Innovations will be identified through a pan-European call and all eligible applications will be evaluated against published criteria. Preference will be given to innovations that have the most robust evidence of success and that aim to reach the most significant scale.

Submission & Evaluation: Applications must be made online at www.euscf.eu. For full details on application process, eligibility and evaluation criteria visit www.euscf.eu/apply.

Further informationevaluators@european-language-grid.eu / https://www.european-language-grid.eu/news/

Task description

External evaluators will operate remotely via a dedicated web interface (ELG Open Calls Platform) and will be responsible for evaluating the project proposals submitted in open calls for ELG pilot projects. Evaluators will be routinely selected from the pool to ensure that no conflict of interest exists in their duties as evaluators. Consequently, evaluators will be asked to sign a non-conflict of interest and confidentiality agreement, before being accepted to perform their duties.

Proposal template is rather simple and evaluation procedure is set to be lightweight. Project proposals will be max. 10 pages long, including title page and formalities. We estimate the evaluation of single project to last approx. 1 hour. Evaluators will receive a fee of €40 per one evaluated project. We expect each evaluator to be assigned 4 – 8 projects for evaluation.

Who Can Apply?

Professionals with experience in language technologies are welcomed to apply.

The following eligibility criteria apply:

  • Evaluators should not be part of the ELG project consortium.
  • Individuals from ELG project consortium institutions who are not officially assigned to and financially supported by the ELG project are eligible to apply.
  • Evaluators will be asked to sign a non-conflict of interest agreement, before being accepted to perform their duties for a project proposal. A conflict of interest exists if an evaluator:
    • was involved in any way in the preparation of the proposal or submitted the proposal itself
    • stands to benefit directly or indirectly if the proposal is accepted
    • has a close family or personal relationship with the applicant or the applicant's organisation
    • is a director, trustee or partner or is in any way involved in the management of the applicant's organisation
    • is employed or contracted by the applicant's organisation or any named subcontractors
    • has submitted a proposal in response to the same call
