The first KDT JU calls in 2021 will be launched on 16 December 2021. The newly formed Joint Undertaking today held its first official meetings, where all decisions necessary to launch the 2021 Calls for proposals were adopted. See the full press release for details.
The action, comprising three concurrent Calls for Proposals addressing 5 topics (two general, two addressing topics of special strategic importance, and a support action), accesses a funding budget in excess of € 360 million from the EU (via the Horizon Europe programme) and from the national funding authorities of the Participating States.
Today, ECSEL JU opens 3 concurrent Calls for proposals – (ECSEL-IA, ECSEL-RIA and an ECSEL-JU Coordination and Support Action CSA). The technical topics for the Calls follow the Multi-Annual Strategic Plan for 2020, following the recently updated ECS-SRA published by the AENEAS, ARTEMIS-IA and EPoSS Industry Associations. The EU funding budget for these calls – 163 M€ - is matched by a roughly equal amount by the ECSEL Participating States, as well as own contributions by the participants in the selected projects.
