KYKLOS 4.0 Open Call #1
Open Call #1 for projects in the digital manufacturing domain
CALLING ALL SME INNOVATORS IN DIGITAL MANUFACTURING.
This is your opportunity to deliver innovation in the digital manufacturing domain and win up to €150.000 per project
// WHAT IS KYKLOS4.0? //
KYKLOS 4.0 is a European funded project that aims to develop an innovative circular manufacturing ecosystem based on novel Circular Production System (CPS) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) based technologies, enhanced with novel production mechanisms and algorithms, targeting on personalised products with extended life cycle and promoting energy efficient and low material consumption intra-factory production processes, resulting reduced greenhouse gas emissions and air pollutants.
// ABOUT THE OPEN CALL //
The KYKLOS4.0 Open Call #1 is looking for SME-led consortia of up to three entities to submit project proposals for the development of innovative solutions to improve digital manufacturing processes. Such solutions – to be delivered though experiments – should demonstrate a high innovation potential and be ready to explore commercialisation opportunities by the end of experiment period. As part of the experiment, the solution must be validated and demonstrated in the pilot location, which should be provided by one of the applicant’s consortium partners.
The KYKLOS4.0 Open Call #1 will prioritise the experiments that are able to demonstrate the impact of the KYKLOS 4.0 approach for a broad set of industrial users. Furthermore, experiments should clearly demonstrate the role of the circular economy within the manufacturing domain in their activities, in combination to the innovation management process.
// FUNDING AVAILABLE //
Awarded projects will be eligible to receive financial support up to €150.000 (for a consortium of three entities), with a limit of €60.000 per applicant.
// IMPORTANT DATES //
The KYKLOS4.0 - Open Call #1 opens 1 April 2021 and closes 30 June 2021 (17h00 CET).
