16/02/2024 InnovationAuth: Participation not confirmed

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 2023, two separate topics are addressed, namely:

Multidimensional Geographic Information Systems (MultiGIS)

Smart Contracts for Digital Transformation Ecosystems (SmartC)

The official Call Announcement is available below as attachment.

Call deadline: 10th of April 2024, 17:00 CEST

A one-step submission process applies. The coordinator prepares a joint proposal for the whole consortium, using the template available below as attachment. The form is submitted using the electronic submission system, along with a financial table following the template also available below and administrative project data entered directly in the system.

Besides, we provide a Partner Search Tool to find partners, by consulting the list of the so-called Expressions of Interest (EoI) and/or by submitting your own EoI

For projects selected for funding, each partner of the consortium will be funded separately by their respective national/regional research funding organisation. Therefore, all national/regional regulations apply. Eligibility regulations for each funding organisation (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 funding organisation 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.
