The CHIST-ERA network selects 10 new research projects for funding for a total budget of approx. 10 M€. This decision follows a call for collaborative research proposals launched in 2020 around two topics: 4 projects belongs to the Advanced Brain-Computer Interfaces topic of the call and 6 others to the sustainable ICT one. 90% of the funders are involved; 9 projects involve research teams in the Widening Countries and 2 projects collaborate with Québec.
The success rate of the call reaches 19%.
The objective of this funding is to support use-inspired basic research in the long term technology domains of the call topics: Brain-computer interfaces & sustainable ICT; as well as the structuring of the corresponding interdisciplinary research communities. All projects involve at least three partners from three different countries.
The monitoring of the projects will be ensured by CHIST-ERA via a yearly Projects Seminar.
