[ Participate in the definition of the CHIST-ERA 2019 Call topics - Tallinn, June 11-13 ]
The CHIST-ERA ERA-NET is a consortium of research funding organisations supporting joint transnational research on multidisciplinary long-term Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) and ICT-based challenges with the potential to lead to significant breakthroughs. The consortium is supported by the EU’s FET programme.
On a yearly basis, the participating funding organisations (incl. SNSF) support high risk, high impact projects by launching a transnational call for research proposals.
The 2019 Call, which will open in October, will address research challenges within two new and hot topics:
- Explainable Machine Learning-based Artificial Intelligence
- Novel Computational Approaches for Environmental Sustainability
Preliminary topic descriptions are available at this link.
The specific research challenges within these topics will be identified by the attendees of the CHIST-ERA Conference 2019, Tallinn, June 11-13, which is open to the research community.
The conference represents a unique opportunity to participate in scoping the call topics, to network with potential project partners and get insight into the future call. Attendance at the conference is not a prerequisite for submitting an application to this call. It can nevertheless provide background information for preparing a proposal.
For information about the conference, follow this link.
Registrations are open until June 8 at this link.
