CHIST-ERA is looking for transformative and highly multidisciplinary research projects in Information and Communication Sciences and Technologies (ICST). 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. Between 2010 and 2013 the following topics were supported: Quantum Communication, Autonomic Systems, Knowledge Extraction, Low-power Computing, Intelligent User Interfaces, Adaptive Communication Networks, Adaptive Machines and Distributed Computing. In the Call 2014, two separate topics are addressed, namely:
Resilient Trustworthy Cyber-Physical Systems (RTCPS)
Human Language Understanding: Grounding Language Learning (HLU)
The official Call Announcement is available below as attachment.
Call deadline: 13th of January 2015 (17:00 CET)
For this call a one-step submission procedure is employed. The coordinator compiles a single full proposal using the templates available below as attachments and submit it via the Electronic Submission System (ESS): she or he uploads the project proposal description in the ESS and enters all the administrative and financial project data directly in the ESS (the financial template below is provided only to help preparing the proposal).
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 appendix 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.
