Through the Horizon 2020 cascade funding mechanism, Fed4FIRE+ provides support to projects from outstanding SMEs, industry, academia, and research organizations.

During its lifetime of five years, the Fed4FIRE+ project organizes:

  • bi-annual open calls for various types of experimentation (large, medium, small), experimental infrastructures.
  • bi-monthly Continuous Call “SME Cascaded Experiments” for the execution of innovative experiments from SMEs organized in 2 stages: a first stage limited-sized proposal and a short-duration experiment followed by a second stage for the submission of a more elaborated proposal for a more extensive experiment.

Continuous Call “SME & NGI Cascaded Experiments”

Until now, the Fed4FIRE+ Federation has financially supported nearly 150 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.

And now also a continuous call with cut-off submission dates targeting only experiments originating from SME’s or from other parties (also not restricted to SMEs) who have successfully completed an experiment or project in the framework of one of the Open calls of any of the other NGI-projects: NGI Pointer, NGI Assure, NGI0 Discovery, NGI ESSIF-Lab, NGI Atlantic.EU, LEDGER, NGI DAPSI, NGI TRUST, NGI ZERO, NGI EXPLORERS, NGI0-PET, Ontochain and TREBLO.
Notification of selection will be done fast i.e. targeting in one month after each cut-off dates for submitted proposals.

[COMING SOON] 9th Fed4FIRE+ Open Call
Jun 1 – Sep 29 all-day
[COMING SOON] 9th Fed4FIRE+ Open Call

The 9th Fed4FIRE+ Open Call will be launched soon.

The major objective of this Call is to make Fed4FIRE+’s federated infrastructure directly available for execution of innovative experiments by experimenters at both industrial (including SMEs) and research organisations. Examples of such experiments may include but are not limited to testing of new protocols or algorithms, performance measurements or scalability testing. This Call envisages 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.

Stay tuned to the Fed4FIRE+ official digital channels for further news on the 9th Open Call in the coming weeks!

Until now, the Fed4FIRE+ Federation has financially supported more than 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 life time of five years, the Fed4FIRE+ project organizes bi-annual open calls for various types of experimentation (large, medium, small) and experimental infrastructures.

Call Objectives:

The major objective of this Call is to make Fed4FIRE+’s federated infrastructure directly available for execution of innovative experiments by experimenters at both industrial (including SMEs) and research organisations. 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. More information on the specific objectives can be found further in the call document.

Funding for Experimenters:

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

Experiment Type Max Experimenter Funding Per Experiment Testbed Patron Funding per experiment Max number of experiments funded in this call Max duration of experiment
