Concerning the EIC Pathfinder Pilot, the following revisions have been published:
- FETPROACT-EIC-07-2020 and FETPROACT-EIC-08-2020 opening and closing dates have been revised. The Calls for Proposals are going to be open on March 26th and closed on July 2nd, 2020.
- Concerning the Topic Call FETPROACT-EIC-07-2020, the Call text has been revised introducing updates under the scope a. Artificial Intelligence for extended social interaction and the scope c. Digital twins for the life-sciences; introducing the new scope b. Breakthrough zero-emissions energy storage and conversion technologies for carbon neutrality. The text has not been modified within the scope d. Measuring the unmeasurable – Sub-nanoscale science for Nanometrology.
The budget dedicated to FETPROACT-EIC-07-2020 has been increased with a total dedicated budget of 56 M euro, of which at least 12 M euro are going to be dedicated for the scopes a.; b.; and c.
- Concerning the Topic Call FETPROACT-EIC-08-2020, the Call text has been revised introducing updates under both the scope a. new techniques for modelling and predicting social/environmental evolution across different temporal and spatial scales and the scope b. radically novel approaches to resilient, reliable and environmentally responsible in-situ monitoring.
The budget dedicated to FETPROACT-EIC-08-2020 has been increased with a total dedicated budget of 18 M euro.
The Topic Call related to FETOPEN-01-2018-2019-2020: FET-Open Challenging Current Thinking has not been modified in the call text, but due to COVID-19, the Call deadline has been extended to the 3rd June, 2020. Check more information here.
