Continuous Call – Stage 2 will be launched soon.

Fed4FIRE+ offer the Continuous Call “SME CASCADED EXPERIMENTS” to make the federated testbed infrastructure directly available to SMEs for executing innovative projects. SMEs can submit a proposal at specific cut-off dates.
Successful applicants who handed in an initial proposal at submission stage 1, can submit proposals for submission stage 2.

Stay tuned to the Fed4FIRE+ official digital channels for further news on Continuous Open Call – stage 2 in the coming weeks!

Until now, the Fed4FIRE+ Federation has financially supported nearly 100 experiments from SMEs, industry, academia and research organizations.
The Fed4FIRE+ project continuously builds on this experience and organizes series of Open Calls for experiments and testbeds and by using the Cascade Granting mechanism. During its lifetime of five years, the Fed4FIRE+ project organizes bi-annual open calls for various types of experimentation (large, medium, small) and experimental infrastructures.
In addition to these bi-annual calls, there is also a continuous call with 2-weekly cut-off submission dates for Stage 1. Notification on acceptance of these submission is done within 2 weeks after the cut-off dates.

Successful applicants who handed in an initial proposal at submission stage 1, can submit proposals for submission stage 2.

The coming cut-off dates / submission deadlines are, always at 17:00 CET (Brussels local time).

Call information

  • Project full name: Fed4FIRE+: Federation for FIRE plus
  • Project grant agreement number: 732638
  • Call identifier: F4Fp-09-Stage2 SME
  • Call title: 9th Fed4FIRE+ Competitive Call – Innovative Experiments (Stage 2 SME) | Category “Medium Experiments”

Submission deadlines:

  • STAGE 2 final deadline: 13 April 2020, at 17:00 CET
  • Feasibility-check submission deadline: 06 April 2021, at 17:00 CET

The major objective of this Call is to make Fed4FIRE+’s federated infrastructure directly available for execution of innovative experiments by experimenters in SMEs. The call is only open to experimenters who successfully completed a Stage 1 experiment through the Fed4FIRE+ Continuous Open Call for SMEs. Examples of such experiments may include but are not limited to testing of new protocols or algorithms, performance measurements or scalability testing. These Calls envisage experiments by which existing products or services are tested, implemented or optimized on the Fed4FIRE+ testbeds rather than proposing or developing new ideas from scratch.

This call has no specific focus or theme, but we would like to call for experiments which exploit the specific features of Fed4FIRE+ as a federation and technologies covered. Proposals need to make a clear link to the completed Stage 1 experiment.

Financial information:

Funding is available to support experimenters, as described in the following table.

EXPERIMENT TYPEMAX EXPERIMENTER FUNDING PER EXPERIMENTTESTBED PATRON FUNDING PER EXPERIMENTMAX NUMBER OF EXPERIMENTS FUNDED IN THIS CALLMAX DURATION OF EXPERIMENT

The above mentioned amounts include the budget for the Fed4FIRE+ partner(s) acting as Patron for the experiment. The split of budget between experimenter and patron is flexible with a maximum set for the budget allocated to the patron as indicated per stage.

The proposer:

  • Proposals will only be accepted from a single party eligible for participation in the EC H2020-projects.
  • Proposers must come from parties or organisations that are not already part of the Fed4FIRE+ project consortium.
  • Proposers can submit multiple experiment proposals, but only one experiment per proposer will be selected for funding in this Call.
  • Proposers who have submitted proposals in previous calls of the Fed4FIRE+ – project are allowed to re-submit.
  • Proposers must have completed successfully a Stage 1 experiment through the Fed4FIRE+ Continuous Open Call for SMEs.
  • Only proposals submitted by completed Stage 1 experiments are accepted.
