Call 2018 Announcement

CHIST-ERA is looking for transformative and highly multidisciplinary research projects. They should explore new ideas with potential for significant scientific and technical impacts in the long term. Each year, CHIST-ERA launches a call for research proposals in two new topics of emergent scientific importance (the list of past call topics is available here). In the Call 2018, two separate topics are addressed, namely:

Analog Computing for Artificial Intelligence (ACAI)
Smart Distribution of Computing in Dynamic Networks (SDCDN)

The official Call Announcement is available below as attachment.

Deadline for pre-proposal submission: 15 January 2019, 17:00 CET

A two-step submission process applies. Applicants are invited to submit a pre-proposal and, if selected in the first step, to submit a full proposal. The submission deadline for the full proposal will be communicated together with the outcome of the first step. At both stages of the application, the coordinator prepares a joint proposal (pre-proposal or full proposal) for the whole consortium, using the template available below as attachment. The form is submitted using the Electronic Submission System (ESS), along with a financial table following the template also available below and administrative project data entered directly in the ESS.   

Electronic Submission System: to be opened mid-November

A Partner Search Tool is provided for submitting Expressions of Interest (EoI) by filling in a webform. All the EoI can be viewed here.

For projects selected for funding, each partner of the consortium will be funded separately by their respective national or regional Research Funding Organisation (RFO). Therefore all national or regional regulations apply. Eligibility regulations for each RFO (or links to them) are given in the annex of the Call Announcement. Additionally, each principaI investigator, not just the coordinator, can contact the respective RFO contact point sufficiently prior to submission regarding eligibility issues.

A summary table of the countries and funding organisations participating in each topic is provided below.
