FET-Open Research and Innovation Actions (RIA): next deadline on 16 May 2018

Get ready for the next deadline for submission of RIA proposals under the Horizon 2020 Future and Emerging Technologies (FET-Open) programme: an information package with guidelines on proposal preparation, submission procedures and specific criteria for evaluation.

FET Open supports early stage collaborative science and technology research, aimed at the development of radically new technologies of the future. The funded multi-beneficiary projects involve a wide range of actors, mostly from universities and research organisations, but also SMEs and industry partners, with a common goal of exploration of new technological possibilities, inspired by cutting-edge science, unconventional interdisciplinary collaborations or new research and innovation practices.

The next cut-off date for the submission of proposals under the Future and Emerging Technologies Open (FET-Open) scheme for Research and Innovation Actions (RIA) is 16 May 2018.
