H2020-ECSEL-2020-3-RIA-IMI-ECSEL joint activity call

The European Commission Horizon 2020: Industrial Leadership, the ECSEL Joint Undertaking and the Innovative Medicines Initiative invite proposals for their H2020-ECSEL-2020-3-RIA-IMI-ECSEL joint activity call. This supports next generation digital technologies for clinical trials at home. Projects should address the technical, regulatory, compatibility and acceptability issues that currently block endorsement by pharma and hospitals for clinical trials at home:

  • lack of accuracy compared to clinical instruments;
  • data integration into the workflow of hospitals and pharma;
  • user friendliness;
  • data security and privacy;
  • patch to patch communication.

Activities should establish new knowledge and explore the feasibility of a new or improved technology, product, process, service, method, tool or solution. Activities may include applied research, technology development and method or tool integration, testing and validation on a small-scale prototype in a laboratory or simulated environment.

Proposals may take the form of research and innovation actions, which require participation by at least three legal entities; each established in a each established in a different EU member state or Horizon 2020 associated country. All three legal entities must be independent of each other. Consortia may consist of SMEs, large enterprises, universities, institutes and public organisations. Projects may have up to 50 participants.

The total budget is worth €5 million. Grants are worth up to €5 million at a 50 per cent co-funding rate for up to three years.

CloudiFacturing, DE

CloudiFacturing invites applications for its open call. This supports experiments in cloudification of production engineering for predictive digital manufacturing. This aims to bring new requirements to CloudiFacturing, new solutions to end users, and digital marketplace customers. The participants will:

  • investigate and gather experience with high performance computing for their use case;
  • explore technical benefits, for example better assessment of the producibility and production process optimisation by more accurate simulation results;
  • exploit information discovered in factory data to improve processes;
  • assess cloud-based business settings and their impact;
  • leverage the CloudiFacturing digital marketplace being developed as a new distribution channel.

Experiments that simulate manufacturing processes or manufacturing tools, leverage factory data to learn from it and optimise manufacturing processes or manufacturability of goods are especially welcome.

Consortia consisting of at between two and five partners including an end user and a software vendor or value added reseller may apply. Third parties must be located in different European countries or associated countries.

The total budget is approximately €700,000 for seven experiments and funding is worth up to €100,000 per experiment over 12 months.
