IoT-NGIN 2nd Open Call
The objectives of the open call are:
a) to enhance IoT-NGIN with additional (HW/SW) solutions contributing in IoT-NGIN technology validation and User Acceptance evaluation with innovative Use Cases,
b) to increase awareness and interest on IoT-NGIN technology and solutions,
c) to motivate DIHs and clusters to promote and adopt IoT-NGIN technologies,
d) to engage IoT device manufacturers and applications developers, stakeholders, decision makers to enter and make sustainable the IoT NGIN ecosystem.
5G New Radio & Edge Cloud connectivity, Resource Self-Awareness & Dynamic Connectivity, Cross Blockchains/DLT data sovereignty and Smart Contracts, Federated ML/ Edge Cloud ML Aggregation, Trained ML model sharing (e.g. Automated Guided Vehicles), Human Centric Ambient Intelligence/Augmented Reality based sensing/control, IoT Cybersecurity/Attacks on Privacy preserving ML, Privacy preserving Cross-Trial/ borders Federation
The IoT-based application proposals will be selected to get up to 75,000 EUR funding through a competitive “DESIGN- EXPERIMENT- GROWTH” stages’ programme.
The IoT-NGIN outcomes will be validated across a multitude of real-life use cases through 7
trials, involving living labs which are distributed throughout Europe :
• Trial #1: IoT-NGIN Integration Infrastructure Technology Lab
• Trial #2: Human-Centred Twin Smart Cities Living Lab
• Trial #3: Smart Agriculture IoT Living Lab
• Trial #4 & Trial#5: Industry 4.0 Use Cases & Living Lab
• Trial #6: Smart Energy Grid Active Monitoring/Control Living Lab
• Trial #7: IoT-NGIN Technology and Living Labs Federation
Who can apply?
SME established and based in one of the EU Member States or an H2020 Associated country.
The SME is a IT technology provider, such as IoT application and services development SME.
Proposals must offer open access to their IoT applications and software components. Any developed Hardware/Software component within IoT-NGIN will be tested in IoT-NGIN pilots and provided as Open Source.
