The CHIST-ERA Call ORD, to be published by the end of July or beginning of August 2022, targets R&D projects in the following topic:

Open & Re-usable Research Data & Software

This call tackles the challenge of open research data and software from the perspective of their possible reuse. 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.

The challenges and promising research and development directions of the call topic were identified following an online workshop bringing together researchers from across a range of research communities and countries and Open Science experts and consultation of the Open Science Advisory Board of CHIST-ERA.

The present Call ORD Pre-announcement (see attached document below) gives an overview of the themes that have emerged.

Applicants are encouraged to start discussing projects with prospective partners. The call will require that projects are submitted by international consortia with minimum of three eligible and independent partners requesting funding to organisations in the call from at least three different participating countries. Additional partners from other countries may be part of a consortium if they can secure their own funding.

Note that a one-step submission and evaluation process will be used.

Anticipated call deadline

14th of December 2022

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.
