DigiFed launches open calls for Generic Experiment communities

DigiFed will launch open calls for 4 different Generic Experiment communities between 2020 – 2021. The first, lead by CEA on Cybersecurity IoT platforms, opens today.

DigiFed Generic Experiments Communities (GEC) are designed to test new collaborations between research centres and SMEs and Mid-Caps as well as develop new co-financing mechanisms between European and regional funding to foster European industry digitalization.

The objective of the Generic Experiment is to build communities of SMEs and Mid-Caps around a specific technical topic (GEC Topic) proposed by a DigiFed research centre (the GEC Owner).

GE Communities are expected to involve a group of about 10 European companies together with the experts from the relevant research centre.

The involved research centres include: CEA who will lead the “Cybersecurity trusted IoT Platform” topic, IKERLAN who will lead “Industrial Cybersecurity”, BME for “Energy-efficient lighting” and ULJ who will develop the “IOT prototyping in agriculture” topic.

The calls for the 4 different topics will be announced progressively, with the first one, lead by CEA and in cooperation with ST and France-Auvergne Rhône Alpes Region, launching today on Cybersecurity: Secured Platform for IoT.
