FUTURE AND Emerging technologiES

emerging paradigms and communities

(FETPROACT-EIC-07-2020)

Specific Challenge

To explore and consolidate a new technological direction in order to put it firmly on the map as a viable paradigm for future technology. To foster the interdisciplinary communities that are able to drive this forward, extending from the participating consortia to a wider European pool of expertise. To stimulate the emergence of a European innovation eco-system around a new technological paradigm, well beyond the world of research alone.

SCOPE

Proposals are sought for cutting-edge high-risk / high-reward research and innovation projects that aim to demonstrate a new technological paradigm within the scope of one of the following sub-topics:

a. Artificial Intelligence for extended social interaction.

b. Breakthrough zero-emissions energy storage and conversion technologies for carbon-neutrality

c. Digital twins for the life-sciences

d. Measuring the unmeasurable –– Sub-nanoscale science for Nanometrology

Key review aspects

  • Is there a new technological paradigm with game changing potential, currently unreachable through current path? 

  • Is the consortium well-balanced, with complementary but no redundancy expertise?

  • To what extent is the project main idea and the partners´ knowledge base interdisciplinary?

  • Is collaboration perceived as real and not just cosmetic, driven by joint goals and mutual learning?

  • Is there enough flexibility in the work-plan to mitigate the inherent risk and make the scientific ambitions plausibly attainable within the lifetime of the project?

  • To what extent is the research novel and not simply an incremental refinement of past scientific efforts?  

  • Is the work-plan properly defined and consistent throughout the proposal, with clear descriptions of work packages, tasks, deliverables and milestones?

  • Is the allocation of resources to tasks and between partners appropriate?

  • Are the proposed timescales to complete each stage of the work realistic?

  • Are links to the ecosystem around the project/consortium established and actions to involve downstream stakeholder included?
