FF4EuroHPC Call 2

Source of Funding:

This call for proposals targets highest quality experiments involving innovative, agile SMEs and putting forward work plans built around innovation targets arising from the use of advanced HPC services. Proposals are sought that address business challenges from European SMEs from varied application domains, with strong preference being given to engineering and manufacturing, or sectors able to demonstrate fast economic growth or particular economic impact for Europe. The highest priority is given to proposals directly addressing the business challenges of manufacturing SMEs.

Priority will be given to consortia centred on SMEs that are new to the use of advanced HPC services; in particular, prior involvement in the Fortissimo or Fortissimo 2 projects would require the innovation aspects for the proposed experiment to be clearly justified, the same applies for activities already funded through other programs.

Submission Deadline: 29th September 2021, at 17:00 Brussels local time

Expected duration of experiments: maximum 15 months with expected commencement 1st March 2022

Funding for Call-2: The indicative total funding budget is € 5 M.

Maximum funding request per proposal: € 200,000 (covering all participants)

Funding constraints for experiment participants (which will be Third Parties as foreseen by Horizon 2020 funding rules): The maximum funding that can be allocated to any Third Party, across all experiments in which that Third Party is involved (including any experiments selected under Call-1), is € 150,000. Proposals to FF4EuroHPC Call-2 that do not adhere to the abovementioned funding restrictions will be rejected without further evaluation.

While the participation of certain FF4EuroHPC beneficiaries in experiments is eligible, the cost of their activities in experiments must not be included in the requested funding for experiments.

FormPlanet launches in 2021 its Open Call to give the chance to up to 8 European companies to be the first recipients of the Test Bed innovative services.

The FormPlanet Open Call is addressed to help SMEs and large companies of the metal sheet manufacturing sector to characterise sheet metal properties, predict part performance and prevent production loses, tackling the upcoming challenges in formability and part quality assessment.

FormPlanet will provide to the industrial applicants advanced testing methodologies for more accurate metals characterisation, non-destructive in-process measurements and modelling.

The Open Call will allow to validate the effectiveness of novel characterisation and modelling approaches.
