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 2021, two separate topics are addressed, namely:

Nano-Opto-Electro-Mechanical Systems (NOEMS) for ICT

Foundations for Misbehaviour Detection and Mitigation Strategies in Online Social Networks and Media (OSNEM)

The official Call Announcement is available below as attachment.

Call deadline: 17th of January 2022, 17:00 CET
