We invite technology and engineering firms to submit proposals for industrial experiments to develop innovative cyber-physical products and services. Successful proposals will be awarded up to €150,000 and will receive technical support.
Cyber-physical systems are networked collections of interacting devices, sensors, hardware and software services for collaboratively realising new functions. The field of CPS includes developers and manufacturers of devices and software, technology suppliers, and systems integrators. Many technology and engineering firms are already working in cyber-physical systems without identifying it as such.
Successful proposals submitted to CPSE Labs under our 3rd Open Call will receive funding as well as support, training and expertise from our Europe-wide network of state-of-the-art Design Centres. All funded experiments will be carried out by the successful applicant(s) in collaboration with at least one CPSE Labs Design Centre: ONERA, LAAS-CNRS, Offis, fortiss, Univ. Politécnica de Madrid, Indra Sistemas, KTH or Newcastle University. Our Design Centres can provide support and training to equip successful applicants with infrastructure, knowledge, and tools needed to support rapid development of innovative CPS products and services.
This call for experiment proposals is issued by the EU-funded Horizon 2020 project CPSE Labs (CPS Engineering Labs - expediting and accelerating the realization of cyber-physical systems, Grant Agreement Number 644400).
Call documents are listed below. Our design centres issue their own call topics.
You can access our FAQs online or as a downloadable guide for experimenters.
There are a few eligibility criteria which must be met when submitting a proposal to CPSE Labs.
Any legal entity (or teams composed by legal entities), whether established in a EU member state or associated country may submit an experiment proposal to CPSE Labs.
Organisations and individuals composing the CPSE Labs core consortium and their affiliates are not allowed to submit proposals.
Experiment proposals must meet one of our supported experiment types.
