We launched a call for proposals, under objective 5.5 of ICT Workprogramme 2013, as a result of which the projects listed below have been selected and are currently under negotiation. We're offering a support to research projects carried out by consortia with participants from different countries, aiming at developing new knowledge, new technology, products, demonstration activities or common resources for research.

For most of them a public presentation, and the contact of the coordinator are available. Links to projects' websites will be added as soon as available.
