The activities that qualify for financial support are related to the exchange of knowledge of CLEC for CPS and IoT, to be applied in four SMART4ALL verticals with European leadership and strategic importance (see the section Guides&Documents):
KTEs are a short-term (3 months) internship projects between two different entities from two different Countries (see eligible countries below): one Academic/Industrial partner who act as Sending Organization and one Academic/Industrial partner who act as Host Organization.
Knowledge Transfer Experiments (KTE) comprise a novel type of 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.
The KTE experiments will be supported with a lump sum of up to EUR 8,000 each to cover mobility allowance for implementing the internship.
The consortia will be free to distribute this amount among the two partners. However:
The following types of organisations are eligible to participate in the call:
System Integrators and/or Technology Providers, i.e. any type of organisation specialised in technology transfer or system integration, serving the needs of end-users, provided they can be categorised in one of the two previous types of beneficiaries.
For this KTE Open Call, a Sending and Host organisation shall apply together as a consortium. The application has to be submitted by the lead Industrial partner.
The members of the consortia can agree on a bi-directional transfer of knowledge but there has to be always an organisation sending a member of its staff to an organisation from another country hosting him or her. Additionally, the Leading Partner must always have an Industrial partner status (SME or Slightly Bigger company).
