Bridging EU-US research on Next Generation Internet (NGI) – Open Calls
The main goal of the NGIatlantic.eu Open Calls is to incentivize EU – US NGI teams to carry out experiments using EU and/or US based experimental platforms. This will take the form of funding to be provided through a cascade grant process for the EU counterparts of the teams formed.
- Submission of Declaration of Honor (DoH) by 30th September 2020, 17:00 CET with the application;
- Deadline: 30 September 2020, 17:00 CET.
- Evaluation: Each proposal will be evaluated by three members of an External Pool of Evaluators;
- Notification of Outcome: Applicants will be notified on the outcome of their proposal within 2 months from the call closure.
- Standstill period: an evaluation review (appeal) period of 5 working days from receipt of the Evaluation Summary Report on the procedural aspects of the evaluation (not the merits of your proposal) is established.
Who can receive financial support?
Private and public organisations of any size (not individual researchers) located within the EU Member States or Associated Countries and twinned with a US counterpart, as described above to carry out the activities proposed. Please note that the funding is limited to coverage of the work to be carried out by the EU team. For the US teams, please refer to the funding mechanisms of your US partners (e.g. National Science Foundation).
Will there be more open calls?
Yes. In addition to this call, NGIatlantic.eu will launch another 3 Open Calls in the period January 2021 – November 2021 – this is just the 2nd chance to get your EU – US NGI experiment funded!
External Evaluators for NGIatlantic.eu
NGIatlantic is seeking candidates to create a pool of up to 50 external and independent evaluators, the NGIatlantic.eu External Pool of Evaluators (EPE). Applicants should demonstrate experience and possess a proven track record in the technical areas which will be part of the priority topics of the NGIatlantic.eu Open Calls. Given the nature of the EU-US collaboration covered by the Open Calls, in addition to applications received from candidates from the EU 28 and 16 Associated members, those from the US and other countries will also be eligible and taken into consideration on a case by case basis for the added value they could bring to project.
NGIatlantic.eu Proposers Webinar
This webinar will focus on interested applicants, providing them an excellent opportunity to present and discuss their ideas for the three NGI topics introduced in the second NGIatlantic.eu Open Call. During the 45 minutes of the webinar, we will also give some space to the EU and US experimental platforms, showcasing how these can represent the ideal playground to push transatlantic research and innovation in the NGI to the next level.
