Show your Talent through our Twinning Lab: Third Open Call proposers webinar

Watch the recordings


Following  the  first  two successful  Open Calls, on the 1st of December launched its third call to support EU- organisations to carry out research experiments across Next Generation Internet (NGI)  application domains using EU and/or US based experimental platforms. The application deadline for this third open call is 26th of February 2021.  For this third call, proposals will address one or both the priority areas identified: (i) the development and/or evolution of EU – US Experimental Platforms for NGI experiments, and/or (ii) experimentation of results with key NGI technologies addressing NGI priority topics where results are mature enough for transatlantic experiments. Internet Trustworthiness and Greening the internet are new topics introduced under this call.

This webinar is part of a series organised around the Open Calls. It will introduce the project and opportunities, and will follow with a deep dive-into the details of the third Open Call, including the NGI topic focus areas where experiments will be funded. This time the event will also offer to the active participants of the Twinning Lab a roadshow to promote their current work and ideas for initiating future projects. Both public and private institutions from the EU and the US will gain the opportunity to start a collaborative dialogue with potential partners which can contribute to the complete deployment and adoption of their experiments connected to Next Generation Internet fields through the open calls.

The third open call is open until the 26th February 2021. This pitching session constitutes a great opportunity not only to active participants to the Twinning Lab, but also to potential new ones willing to join the open calls. In the final part of the event, participants will join a practical visual collaboration session to enable them to easily build and map relevant ideas for future experiments

Participants will:

  • Get insights about the services and open calls.
  • Explore the benefits and added value of joining the Twinning Lab online tool.
  • Promote their services and find collaborations for generating new experiments.
  • Generate new ideas and link them with those of potential partners from the EU-US.
