SMART4ALL is a H2020 funded project that builds capacity amongst European stakeholders via the development of self-sustained, cross-border experiments that transfer knowledge and technology between academia and industry. It targets Customised Low-Energy Computing (CLEC) for Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) and the Internet of Things (IoT) and combines a set of unique characteristics that join together under a common vision different cultures, different policies, different geographical areas and different application domains.

The SMART4ALL consortium is led by the University of Peloponnese (Greece) and is composed of 25 partners from Central, South and Eastern Europe.

SMART4ALL brings a new paradigm for revealing “hidden innovation treasures” – mainly from geographical areas that are underrepresented in European funding – and helping them to find the path to market via new, innovative commercial products. As part of its strategy, the project will develop and maintain an active network of participants across Central, South and Eastern Europe for supporting academics, SMEs and Slightly Bigger Companies entering the digitisation era.

In order to achieve this, SMART4ALL will design and implement 3 types of cross-border experiments:

1) Knowledge Transfer Experiments (KTE), which comprise a novel type of internship experiments allowing smaller projects, or less mature ideas to be presented, tested and thus potentially find the fertile ground to grow and reveal its product potentials; 

2) Focused Technology Transfer Experiments (FTTE), focusing on one of the four defined underrepresented areas, will give the opportunity to form synergies, accelerate product orient projects and offer guidance towards successful commercialisation; 

3) Cross-domain Technology Transfer Experiments (CTTE), targeting more complex multidisciplinary transfers and productisation of novel CLEC CPS and the IoT technologies to wider markets.

The following types of organisations are eligible to participate in the project: 

1. Universities and other Academic Institutions, 

2. SMEs and Slightly Bigger Companies,

3. System Integrators and/or Technology Providers.

Consortia needs to include at least one SME or Slightly Bigger Companies, and the requirement is that project applications are cross-border in nature, i.e., that they are composed of 2 different entities from two different countries or H2020 associated countries.

As many as nine calls will be launched, and the first one of them – Self-Sustained Cross-Border Customised Cyber-Physical System Experiments for Capacity Building among European Stakeholders has already been launched and is related to knowledge transfer experiments.

Deadline for applications: 15 July 2020.
