agROBOfood project Open Call11/03/2020
The agROBOfood project builds upon its' existing network and ecosystem and uses the mechanism of Open Calls to provide financial support to third parties, in order to strengthen communication and partnerships between DIHs and SMEs in the robotic sector. That`s why they have officially launched the Industrial Challenges Open Call on the 20th of October. The project has been funded by the EUROPEAN UNION`S HORIZON 2020 RESEARCH AND INNOVATION PROGRAMME UNDER THE GRANT AGREEMENT №825395. It will be open until January 20th 2021! Industrial Challenges Open Call aims at selecting approximately 8 Industrial Challenges that tackle a commercial need within agri-food and offer a solution based on robotic technologies.
This call is open for individual SMEs in agri-food and robotics. Selected SMEs will receive up to 300 thousand euros. Chosen sub-projects will go through a 17-month process that consists of three phases and after positive evaluation, each phase is followed by financial support.
A webinar about the Industrial Challenges Open Call, for DIH and Regional Cluster representatives will take place in the beginning of November.
