SMART 5TH CALL FOR PROJECTS IS OPEN!
20 September 2021
We are pleased to announce that the SMART 5th Call for Projects is open. From now until 24th of January you can send us your Project Outlines.
The Project Outline (PO) provides a short overview of the concept, the objectives of the project and the partnership even if they are not entirely settled. This document allows early advice and feedback from the evaluation. This step is highly recommended, but participants may submit a Full Project Proposal straightforward.
The PO is used for the pre-selection of proposals, preliminary information and budget discussions between the SMART organisation and the respective Public Authorities and for general information exchange within the SMART organisation. It enables an initial selection among the different submitted ideas, while keeping the workload of consortia to a minimum.
PO Proposers' Day will be held online on the 4th of November 2021
If you have an Innovative Project Idea on Advanced Manufacturing and you want to form an International Consortium to develop it, join us at the online event we are organising on the 4th of November 2021. You can find detailed information and register for the event in the 5th SMART PO Proposers' Day website.
