FET (Future and Emerging Technologies) is organising an Information Day for the FET Open call for Research and Innovation Actions. Next call cut-off date is 29 September 2015.

FET Open calls for early-stage joint science and technology research towards radically new future technologies. Being entirely non-prescriptive with regards to the nature or purpose of the technologies that are envisaged, this call targets the unexpected. It is open to collaborative research that satisfies the FET-Open 'gatekeepers': long-term vision, ambition of the scientific and technological breakthrough, foundational character, novelty, high-risk and deep synergistic interdisciplinary approach. FET-Open aspires to be an early detector of new and promising ideas, but also of the new high-potential actors in research and innovation (such as young researchers and high-tech SMEs) that may become the scientific and industrial leaders of the future.

This Information Day is the opportunity for attendees to learn about the H2020 proposal guidelines and submission procedures and about the FET-specific procedure and criteria for evaluation. There will be ample time for questions and for networking among the participants.

The registration to the InfoDay is now closed (maximum attendance has been reached).

Follow the morning presentations via live webstreaming (9:00-12:30). You can also ask your questions (in the morning) via a dedicated chat box.

All presentations from the Information Session (from the morning) and its video recording will be available the following week.

Next Call deadline: 29/09/2015 - Budget: €38.5 million for Research and Innovations Actions.

FET Open also calls for Coordination and Support Actions (CSA): FET exchange and FET Take-Up topics are addressed in the next call deadline (budget €1.5 million).
