The EUREKA Clusters CELTIC-NEXT, EUROGIA, ITEA 3, and PENTA-EURIPIDES², together with a number of EUREKA Public Authorities, have launched a Call for innovative projects in the AI domain. The aim of this Call is to boost the productivity & competitiveness of European industries through the adoption and use of AI systems and services.
Consortiums including minimum two companies from different EUREKA participating countries can be funded. However, usually project groups are much wider, consisting of SME's, large companies, and universities or research organisations. Projects with eligible costs in the range of 2-10 M€ are expected, though projects outside this range may also be submitted for evaluation.
Business Finland can grant funding for Finnish partners in project consortiums. National funding criteria apply, including the criteria for Co-Innovation Projects. No fixed budget is reserved for this call, and applications are competing for funding with other applications submitted to Business Finland. The Finnish partners in project consortiums must contact Business Finland 15 may 2010 at the latest.
The call closes 15 June 2020 and projects are expected to start early in 2021 (after December 2020). A closer description of the call and guidelines for the applicants can be found at the call website.
