This is your opportunity to deliver innovation in the digital manufacturing domain and win up to €150.000 per project
KYKLOS4.0 Open Call #1 | Applications open 1 April 2021 | Closing 30 June 2021 (17h00 CET)
KYKLOS4.0 is looking for innovative solutions to improve digital manufacturing processes, and addressing one or more of the following sub-domains:
Product lifecycle management
Life cycle analysis
Big data and data management
Decision support systems
The KYKLOS4.0 Open Call #1 is looking for SME-led consortia of up to three entities to submit project proposals for the development of innovative solutions to improve digital manufacturing processes. Proposed solutions – to be delivered through experiments – should demonstrate a high innovation potential and be ready to explore commercialisation opportunities by the end of the experiment period. As part of the experiment, the solution must be validated and demonstrated in a pilot location, which should be provided by one of the applicant’s consortium partners.
Each selected project will be funded with up to €150.000 (for consortia of three entities).
The KYKLOS4.0 Open Call #1 will prioritise the experiments that are able to demonstrate the impact of the KYKLOS 4.0 approach* for a broad set of industrial users. Furthermore, experiments should clearly demonstrate the role of the circular economy within the manufacturing domain in their activities, in combination to the innovation management process.
The experiments should be implemented over a period of six months, divided into three stages: Planning (1 month), Implementation (3- 4 months), and Commercialisation & Business Sustainability (1-2 months).
* Additional information on the KYKLOS4.0 approach available in the Guidelines for Applicants
* Please note that the access to technologies, business support and visibilit & promotion may be subject to change according to each projects’ needs and based on consortium decisions.
Awarded projects will be provided technical and business-related mentoring over the six-month experiment period.
The KYKLOS4.0 – Open Call #1 is open to organisations active in the digital manufacturing domain.
Proposals must be delivered by consortia of 2-3 entities, including at least one SME and an industrial partner. The consortium submitting a proposal must be led by an SME. The lead SME must be a technology integrator and the industrial partner will serve as a pilot location for the developed solution to be validated and demonstrated.
The KYKLOS4.0 – Open Call #1 accepts proposals from consortia of SMEs and industrial partners that are eligible for EC funding under the rules of H2020, as defined in the Guidelines for Applicants.
When developing your project idea, keep in mind some important aspects, which will be the basis of the evaluation process.
Please consult all the open call documentation. Some documents are for reference; other documents must be signed and uploaded together with the proposal.
