FET Open supports early stage collaborative science and technology research, aimed at the development of radically new technologies of the future. The funded multi-beneficiary projects involve a wide range of actors, mostly from universities and research organisations, but also SMEs and industry partners, with a common goal of exploration of new technological possibilities, inspired by cutting-edge science, unconventional interdisciplinary collaborations or new research and innovation practices.
