About

Self-sustained customized cyberphysical system experiments for capacity building among European stakeholders, a four year 8,000,000 Euros flagship EU project under the call DT-ICT-01-2019: Smart Anything Everywhere for connecting Digital Innovation Hubs across Europe. The project received the highest score in the evaluation and will start within 2019.

The SMART4ALL consortium consists of 25 European partners with interdisciplinary skills and know-how from universities, research institutes, investors, networking organizations, SMEs, Innovation Hubs and NGOs. The MECOnet is only partner from Montenegro. 

The project will build capacity (via Open Calls) amongst European stakeholders through the development of self-sustained, cross-border experiments that transfer knowledge and technology between academia and industry. It targets CLEC (Customized low energy computing) CPS/IoT and combines a set of unique characteristics that join together different cultures, policies, geographical areas and application domains under a common vision.

The application domains targeted are digitized transportationdigitized agriculturedigitized environment and digitized anything

Open Calls

Are you a System Integrator and/or Technology Provider with experience in the development of CLEC CPS/IoT solutions? Find out the different ways you can join the SMART4ALL Ecosystem in South, Eastern and Central Europe, search for partners and apply to our open calls. Open calls provide unique opportunity to get small or medium grant for your idea. 

Temporary SMART4ALL offers three types of grants:
 

 

Knowledge Transfer Experiments (KTE), 1st call closed, pending 2nd 

KTEs are a short-term (3 months) internship projects between two different  entities from two different Countries (see eligible countries below):  one Academic/Industrial partner who act as Sending Organization and one  Academic/Industrial partner who act as Host Organization.

Knowledge Transfer Experiments (KTE) comprise  a novel type of experiments allowing smaller projects, or less mature  ideas to be presented, tested and thus potentially find the fertile  ground to grow and reveal its product potentials. 

The  activities that qualify for financial support are related to the  exchange of knowledge of CLEC for CPS and IoT, to be applied in four  SMART4ALL verticals with European leadership and strategic importance  (see the section Guides&Documents):

  • Digitized Transport
  • Digitized Environment
  • Digitized Agriculture
  • Digitized Anything

Who can apply?

The following types of organisations are eligible to participate in the call:

  • Universities and other Academic Institutions
  • SME and Slightly Bigger Companies, as defined in the EU recommendation 2003/361.  Slightly Bigger Companies are defined respectively as organisations  with a staff headcount below 500 employees and a turnover below €100M. 
  • System Integrators and/or Technology Providers,  i.e. any type of organisation specialised in technology transfer or  system integration, serving the needs of end-users, provided they can be  categorised in one of the two previous types of beneficiaries.
For  this KTE Open Call, a Sending and Host organisation shall apply  together as a consortium. The members of the consortia can agree on a  bi-directional transfer of knowledge but there has to be always an  organisation sending a member of its staff to an organisation from  another country hosting him or her. Additionally, the Leading Partner must always have an Industrial partner status (SME or Slightly Bigger company).

 

Eligible Countries 

For this KTE Open Call, the following countries will be eligible: 

Prioritised Countries 

Additionally, since one of the goals of SMART4ALL is to support the digital transformation in mainly European countries  underrepresented in European funding schemes, by means of cross-border  experiments, consortia including at least one member from one of the SEE  countries will be prioritised:

Albania, Moldova, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Greece, Hungary, Kosovo

Financial support

The KTE experiments will be supported with a lump sum of up to EUR 8,000 each to cover mobility allowance for implementing the internship.

The consortia will be free to distribute this amount among the two partners. However:

  • Each  consortium will need to explain in the online application form how the  amount will be distributed between the partners and what category of  costs each partner will be responsible for.
  • The  grant will be paid to the Leading Partner who will be responsible for  its distribution within the consortium. Each consortium will decide  which organisation will be the Leading Partner, but it must always have  an Industrial Partner status (SME or Slightly Bigger company. Details of  the grant distribution among partners will be described in the  Sub-Grant Agreement.
  • Before  deciding on the distribution of expenditure in the project, attention  should be paid to EU and national social security regulations. Social  security costs should be borne by the partner who is obliged to do so  under the above-mentioned regulations.

For time line of the calls pls. refer to...

Focused Technology Transfer Experiments (FTTE), 1st call closed, pending 2nd

FTTEs (Focused Technology Transfer Experiments) are short-term (6-9 months) cross-border experiments between two different entities (industrial or academic)  from two different eligible countries.  The projects will focus on one  of the four following defined verticals and will give the opportunity to  form synergies, accelerate product  orient projects and offer guidance  towards successful commercialisation.

  •  Digitized Transport
  •  Digitized Environment
  •  Digitized Agriculture
  •  Digitized Anything

One  partner (industrial or academic) from one eligible country transfers a  particular novel hardware or software technology in the domain of  Customized Low-Energy Computing (CLEC) for Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS)  and the Internet of Things (IoT) to a receiving industry partner (SME or  Slightly Bigger Company) from a different eligible country.

Who can Apply?

The SMART4ALL cross border Experiments have to be proposed by a Consortium including the following type of applicants:

Universities and other Academic Institutions.

SME and Slightly Bigger Companies, as defined in the EU recommendation 2003/361.  Slightly Bigger Companies are defined respectively as organisations  with a staff headcount below 500 employees and a turnover below €100M.

System Integrators and/or Technology Providers,  i.e. any type of organisation specialised in technology transfer or  system integration, serving the needs of end-users, provided they can be  categorised in one of the two previous types of beneficiaries.

Proposals  can be submitted by any of the aforementioned type of entities, but the  participation of, at least, one SME/Slightly Bigger Company is  compulsory and should be the lead of the cross-border experiment.
 

Eligible Countries 

For this FTTE Open Call, the following countries will be eligible: 

The Member States of the European Union including United Kingdom;

The Countries Associated to Horizon 2020;

Any other South-East Europe (SEE) country not listed above but included in Annex A of the H2020 Work Programme.

Albania, Moldova, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Greece, Hungary, Kosovo

Financial support

The  FTTE partners will apply for financial support by submitting one joint  proposal describing the FTTE and its technical plan and a detailed  estimation of the FTTE-related costs.
