1ST EXCHANGE SCHEME OPEN CALL

ENFIELD logo(only lighthouse)EC funded ENFIELD project has allocated 1.1M Euros to provide support to a total of 76 researchers to answer specific ENFIELD challenges through four rounds of exchange open calls. We invite researchers (PhD students, Post-docs and senior researchers) and groups of researchers to propose projects that address specific ENFIELD challenges and contribute to new AI research and applications. These projects will develop fundamental research in the areas of Adaptive, Green, Human-Centric, and Trustworthy AI. These pillars are strategic and of paramount importance to successful AI development, deployment and acceptance in Europe and will further advance the research within verticals of Healthcare, Energy, Manufacturing, and Space.

How can I apply to the ENFIELD Exchange Open Call?

First, you need to access the public open call here. After reading it carefully, you should complete the technical proposal annex and upload it in PDF format along with a link to a 2-minute presentation video in the application form, here.  

How can I add the 2-minute Presentation Video to my applications?

The video will not be uploaded during the application. In the application form you will need to provide a URL link to the repository where you stored your video. Applicants should record and watch the final version of the video to ensure it's ready for submission. Store a copy of the 2-minute Presentation Video on an online repository (e.g., YouTube, Vimeo, etc) and in the application form provide the URL link. It is important to adjust the video's privacy settings so that the evaluators have access to the URL link to watch the video. If the video is not accessible for watching, it will be considered that no video was associated, making the application not eligible.

In which languages can the application be submitted?

Applications can be submitted in English only. The 2-minute presentation video must also be in English.

What is the duration of the exchange project?

Each project will have a duration between 3 to 6 months.

Can I apply to more than one challenge?

Proposals should be submitted until Sunday, 31 March 2024 at 17:00 (CET).

When will I be informed about the application’s results?

All applicants will be informed of the results of the evaluation process by email by 23 April 2024 (indicative date). The list of the selected projects will then be published on the information channels of the ENFIELD project.
