Fed4FIRE+ and a number of NGI research projects shared insights on the currently available funding opportunities in the NGI domain in a live Q&A session with innovators.
On 12 July 2021, Fed4FIRE+ co-organized “NGI Open Calls: Q&A Session”, an online initiative to support innovators working on the development of a human-centric Internet of tomorrow, together with the NGI Outreach Office, NGI Zero, NGI Assure, NGI Atlantic.eu, and Ontochain.
The Open Calls on the spotlight covered a range of challenges that the NGI community is addressing to build the Internet of Humans. From open-source solutions to blockchain technologies, innovators can find within the NGI initiative financial support, expertise and top-notch testing facilities for their research.
Brecht Vermeulen, Fed4FIRE+ Technical Coordinator from Ghent University- IDLab, presented the key features of the 9th Open Call and Continuous Open Calls for SMEs, Fed4FIRE+ funding opportunities for NGI experiments testing. Multiple federated testbeds in cross-technology areas, now accessible via the new Fed4FIRE+ portal, emphasized Brecht Vermeulen, allow academia, SMEs and startups to focus on implementing and optimizing their existing products or services.
