The FET Open call will open in the next few months, offering a total of 37.5 million EUR for early-stage joint science and technology research towards radically new future technologies. Being entirely non-prescriptive with regards to the nature or purpose of the technologies that are envisaged, this call targets the unexpected. It is open to collaborative research that satisfies the FET-Open ‘gatekeepers’: long-term vision, ambition of the scientific and technological breakthrough, foundational character, novelty, high-risk and deep synergistic interdisciplinary approach. FET-Open aspires to be an early detector of new and promising ideas, but also of the new high-potential actors in research and innovation (such as young researchers and high-tech SMEs) that may become the scientific and industrial leaders of the future.
In preparation for this call release, an Information Day is being organised, offering the opportunity for attendees to learn about the H2020 proposal guidelines and submission procedures and about the FET-specific procedure and criteria for evaluation. There will be ample time for questions and for networking among the participants.
The registration will open during the week of 25 May. The event is free of charge but prior registration is compulsory. Attendants will have the possibility to upload up to 3 slides if they wish to present their research topic to network with other participants.
Date: 6th July 2015
Location: Brussels, Belgium
The attendance is limited to 200 participants. Live webstreaming will be available and provided on this page the day of the event. Registration will open on the 25th May 2015.
