SMART4ALL is a H2020 funded project (Grant Agreement No. 872614) that builds capacity amongst European stakeholders via the development of self-sustained, cross-borderexperiments that transfer knowledge and technology between academia and industry. It targets Customised Low-Energy Computing (CLEC) for CyberPhysical Systems (CPS) and the Internet of Things (IoT) and combines a set of unique characteristics that join together under a common vision different cultures, different policies, different geographical areas and different application domains.
The SMART4ALL consortium is led by the University of Peloponnese (Greece) and is composed of 25 partners from Central, South and Eastern Europe.
Cross-Domain Technology Transfer Experiments (CTTE)
The Cross-Domain Technology Transfer Experiments (CTTE) funding instrument, focusing on one of the four defined verticals (Digitized Transport, Digitized Agriculture, Digitized Environment and Digitized Anything), will give the opportunity to form synergies, accelerate product orient projects and offer guidance towards successful commercialisation. It will be of short-term duration (6-9 months) and will consist of cross-border Pathfinder Application Experiments (PAEs) between 3 different entities from at least two different eligible countries
For this CTTE Open Call, one Academic/Industrial Technology Provider transfers a novel technology to one Industrial Technology Receiving partner as an early-adopter and then one Industrial productization partner extends the value chain. The partners shall apply together as a consortium through a simple application form.
The SMART4ALL cross border Experiments have to be proposed by a Consortium including the following type of applicants:
- Universities and other Academic Institutions.
- SME and Slightly Bigger Companies, as defined in the EU recommendation 2003/361. Slightly Bigger Companies are defined respectively as organisations with a staff headcount below 500 employees and a turnover below €100M.
- System Integrators and/or Technology Providers, i.e. any type of organisation specialised in technology transfer or system integration, serving the needs of end-users, provided they can be categorised in one of the two previous types of beneficiaries.
Proposals can be submitted by any of the aforementioned type of entities, but the participation of, at least, one SME/Slightly Bigger Company is compulsory and should be the lead of the cross-border experiment.
Additionally, since one of the goals of SMART4ALL is to support the digital transformation in mainly European countries underrepresented in European funding schemes, by means of cross-border experiments, consortia including at least one member from one of the SEE countries will be prioritised:
- North Macedonia
- Bosnia and Herzegovina
The CTTE partners will apply for financial support by submitting one joint proposal describing the CTTE and its technical plan and a detailed estimation of the CTTE-related costs.
Financial support per CTTE
The CTTE experiments will be supported with a lump sum of up to EUR 80,000 each to cover staff, travel and equipment needed for implementing the experiment.
Financial support per CTTE partner
Every CTTE partner can receive a maximum financial support of EUR 60,000.
