This project will support more than 20 highly innovative cross-border experiments (7 starting with the project and at least 14 acquired through two Open Calls), bringing together technology providers and manufacturing end-users to perform experimentation, in order to validate the DIGITbrain solution. A total budget of 1.4M€ has been kept for these two Open Calls.
- The 1st Open Call for application experiments will be open from 31st March 2021 for three months until the End of June 2021.
- The 2nd Open Call for application experiments will be open from 31st March 2022 for three months until the End of June 2022.
Our 1st Open Call will be open soon! Register for our newsletter, to stay up-to-date!
DIGITbrain - FIRST OPEN CALL FOR APPLICATION EXPERIMENTS
H2020 DIGITbrain project, funded by EC under the Grant Agreement number 952071, includes Financial Support to Third Parties (FSTP) under two open calls. DIGITbrain has the ambition to transform the CloudiFacturing Solution and ecosystem (developed in the H2020 CloudiFacturing Project) towards the requirements of Manufacturing as a Service (MaaS), utilising the Digital Brain and its underlying technology components as the main innovation of the project.
This first Open Call is focused on attracting Third Parties (especially manufacturing and ISV SMEs and mid-caps) to perform experiments to validate the DIGITbrain solution and to make SMEs more competitive by transferring innovative solutions into the wider manufacturing community. Experiments will be implemented in close collaboration with Digital Innovation hubs and technical partners of competence centers. This interaction should start during proposal preparation, DIHs and technical partners of competence centers acting as business and technical supporters for applicants. This collaboration should continue during the experiments’ deployment and execution.
KEY CALL DETAILS
EXPECTATIONS FOR EXPERIMENTS
Grounding on the Digital Twin concept, experiments will be focused on creating customised industrial products and facilitating cost-effective distributed and localised production for manufacturing SMEs or mid-caps, by leveraging edge, cloud and HPC-based modelling, simulation, optimisation, analysis and machine learning tools. Experiments will cover any segments in the manufacturing sector at large, including (but not limited to) discrete manufacturing, continuous production, or construction.
