We are pleased to announce that the SMART 7th Call for Projects is open. From now until 22nd  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 evaluators. 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.

As last year, SMART will be using the Cluster Project Tool that will enable participants to enter the key project data into the system to automate some subsequent tasks.

PO Proposers’ Day will be held in person in Donostia – San Sebastián (Spain) on November 23rd, 2023

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 on – site event we are organising on the 23rd of November 2023.

As a new feature, this year the PO day will be held in conjunction with the MANUFuture Conference 2023 bringing together professionals from the industry and offering an enticing program that we invite you to participate in.

You can find detailed information and register for the event in the 7th SMART PO Proposers’ Day website.
