The CHIST-ERA network selects 9 new research projects for funding for a total budget of 8,5 M€. This decision follows a call for collaborative research proposals launched in 2021 around two topics:
- 5 projects belong to the NOEMS for ICT topic and;
- 4 projects belong to the topic on misbehaviour detection in online social networks.
The success rate of the call reaches 47%.
The objective of the CHIST-ERA funding is to support use-inspired basic research in the long-term technology domains of the call topics as well as the structuring of the corresponding interdisciplinary research communities in Europe. All 9 projects are multilateral projects involving at least three partners from three different countries: 15 different countries are represented in the funded projects. Almost 80% of the projects involve partners in the Widening Countrie and 1 project has a partner overseas in Taiwan.
The projects will be funded by the national/regional funding organisations of CHIST-ERA. The monitoring of the projects will be ensured by CHIST-ERA via a yearly Projects Seminar.
