SMART – the new EUREKA Cluster in Advanced Manufacturing – is launching its First SMART Call for Projects in Advanced Manufacturing on December 11.
Czech Republic, Norway, Portugal, Slovakia, South Korea, Spain, Sweden and Turkey are participating in this first call. Austria, Canada, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Slovenia and Switzerland are not taking part in this call, but partners from these countries can contact their project officers to discuss potential funding alternatives.
The Cluster is organizing its first SMART Proposers' Day in Brussels on December 12. SMART Proposers' Day is a networking forum for organizations interested in participating in SMART projects that want to benefit from performing collaborative research.
The agenda includes a presentation about the first SMART Project Call, a project proposal pitch session and BtoB meetings to help you find project partners.
Projects ideas from all Advanced Manufacturing Technologies are welcomed. SMART projects are bottom-up and are open to all research topics as laid down on the SMART Technology Roadmap.
The SMART EUREKA Cluster invites interested organizations to pitch their project ideas by registering on the SMART Proposers' Day website or by filling in a Project Idea Form, to be published on the “Projects looking for partners” section of the SMART website.
