Funding Open Calls

CONNECT’s Professor Luiz DaSilva is coordinating a number of EU Horizon2020 research projects which currently have open calls.

These calls offer research funding opportunities to companies and academics.

Active open calls are listed below. If you have any queries, please contact wireless.testbed@connectcentre.ie

Fed4Fire+
The Fed4FIRE+ project runs Fed4FIRE’s “best-in- town” Federation of experimentation facilities for the Future Internet Research and Experimentation initiative. The main objective of this Open Call is to make the federated infrastructure directly available for the execution of innovative experiments by experimenters from SMEs. A limited amount of support is available for the preparation of proposals and increasing the quality of the experiments. Funding is available in a two stage process as follows:

Stage 1: The experiments submitted in Stage 1 are innovative experiments with a limited time in order to collect information on feasibility, requirements, challenges for the 2nd stage. Funding available: €12,500

Stage 2: The experiments submitted in the 2nd stage are proposals for more extensive innovative experiments which are built upon the proposals and experiments run after selection in the 1st stage.  Funding available: €55,000

Further details on the eligibility criteria, selection process, is available from the following URL: https://www.fed4fire.eu/event/2nd-fed4fire-competitive-call-for-experimenters/?instance_id=13

Closes: 18 September 2017

WiSHFUL
The WiSHFUL project has announced its fifth and final Open Call for Experiments, targeting advanced solutions for the intelligent control of wireless networks using the WiSHFUL software platforms and its unified programming interfaces (UPIs), and using the wireless test facilities and hardware supported by the WiSHFUL Consortium. Funding is available as follows:

Scientific Excellence WiSHFUL-OC5-EXP-EXC: Max experiment budget €50,000 x 3

Innovation by SMEs WiSHFUL-OC5-EXP-IND: Max experiment budget €40,000 x 4

Further details on the eligibility criteria, selection process, is available from the following URL: http://www.wishful-project.eu/OC5

Closes: 2 October 2017

FUTEBOL
Eligible proposals must use the FUTEBOL tools and/or infrastructure for the implementation of the proposal. Selected experiments will receive a higher level of support from the FUTEBOL team than the usual support provided in Fed4Fire testbeds. Consequently, there is no funding available. Further details on the eligibility criteria, selection process, is available from the following URL: http://www.ict-futebol.org.br/index.php/opencall/

Closes: 1 November 2017
