The CHIST-ERA initiative is looking for highly innovative and multidisciplinary collaborative projects in information and communication sciences and technologies. Thus CHIST-ERA is open to new ideas and original solutions, involving interdisciplinary skills. In addition, the transformative research done in CHIST-ERA shall explore new topics with potential for significant scientific and technical impacts. In the Call 2011, two separate topics are addressed, namely:
From data to new knowledge (D2K)
Green ICT, towards Zero Power ICT (G-ICT)
The official Call Announcement is available below as attachment.
For this call a one-step submission procedure is employed.
