The Technology Agency of the Czech Republic has opened a call in the field of ICT, the CHIST-ERA Call 2021. It will support projects focused on one of this year's topics: “Nano-Opto-Electro-Mechanical Systems (NOEMS) for ICT” and “Foundations for Misbehaviour Detection and Mitigation Strategies in Online Social Networks and Media (OSNEM)”.
This is a two-stage call in which project proposals are filed first. These may be filed by international consortia composed of at least three independent partners, each from a different participating country (the list is attached to the call documents). Since this is an international call, it is necessary to meet both the international rules applicable to applicants from all participating countries and national conditions, which are based on the EPSILON programme (TACR), through which successful applicants from the Czech Republic will receive support.
The support will involve projects whose projection will include the achievement of at least one of the results supported by the EPSILON programme, such as an industrial or utility model, patent, prototype, functional sample, software or proven technology.
