  • Pre-publication of the Call Open Research Data

    CHIST-ERA is pleased to pre-announce the Call ORD, to be published this summer. The call targets the topic Open & Re-usable Research Data & Software (ORD). The objective is to create the conditions for research in any domain based on open or shared data and software.

    While CHIST-ERA is primarily focused on ICT, this call addresses any research domain: Within, at the interface or outside ICT.

  • Taiwan joins CHIST-ERA

    CHIST-ERA is happy to welcome the Taiwanese Ministry of Science and Technology on board (MOST)! MOST has formally joined CHIST-ERA as funding partner in July 2021. MOST will participate to the yearly call of CHIST-ERA.

    With Québec, Taiwan is the 2nd international partner of CHIST-ERA, and the first one in Asia.

    CHIST-ERA is a programme for European coordinated research on long-term Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) and ICT-based scientific challenges.

    CHIST-ERA is a coordination and co-operation activity of national and regional research funding organisations mainly in Europe and is supported by the Horizon 2020 Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) programme of the European Union through the ERA-NET Cofund funding scheme. The aim is to reinforce the transnational collaboration between the participating states in challenging multidisciplinary research in the ICT and ICT-based areas with the potential to lead to significant breakthroughs. On a yearly basis, the partner organisations identify emergent scientific fields allowing researchers to engage in high risk, high impact projects by launching a transnational call for research proposals. The text of the CHIST-ERA calls are defined and then published within 12 months after the topics selection based on the research community expertise and long-term vision to maintain a high level of relevance of the calls in very competitive evolving areas which need reactivity. The focus is long-term transformational research. The research agendas developed by the FET Flagship initiatives feed into this topic selection process.

    In addition, CHIST-ERA follows the funded projects in organising a yearly CHIST-ERA Conference where projects present their goals and achievements to the research community, CHIST-ERA partners, Flagships communities and other stakeholders.
