This FET Proactive call sought for proposals for cutting-edge high-risk / high-reward research and innovation projects that aim to demonstrate a new technological paradigm within the scope of one of the following sub-topics:
a. Human-Centric AI.
b. Implantable autonomous devices and materials
c. Breakthrough zero-emissions energy generation for full decarbonization.
FET Proactive projects should establish a solid baseline of knowledge and skills and assemble the interdisciplinary communities around them. They should further foster the emergence of a broader innovation ecosystem and create a fertile ground for future take-up of its new technological paradigm (e.g. public engagement, informal education, policy debate).
91 proposals were submitted to the call last 13 November 2019. After the evaluation process, 22 projects have been finally selected and funded. The awarded projects will start during the second half of 2020 or beginning of 2021 and will last between three to four years.
