Call for Proposals - ICT – EU Brazil Coordinated Call 2013 FP7-ICT-2013-EU-Brazil Closed!

Objectives

International cooperation in the programme aims to support European competitiveness and to jointly address, with other regions of the world, issues of common interest and mutual benefit, thereby supporting also other EU policies (sustainable development, environmental protection, disaster response, security etc).

International cooperation activities in this Work Programme have three main objectives:

  1. To jointly respond to major global technological challenges by developing interoperable solutions and standards
  2. To jointly develop ICT solutions to major global societal challenges
  3. To improve scientific and technological cooperation for mutual benefit

Actions

Proposals will be funded under the Small or medium scale focused research projects (STREPs) funding schemes and will only be selected on the condition that their corresponding coordinated project will be funded by the Brazilian Authorities.

Projects will be funded within the following areas:

  • Cloud Computing for Science: development of state-of-the-art Cloud Computing environment that efficiently exploits the computational, communication and data resources in both the EU and Brazil and offers interoperable and user-centred interfaces.
  • Sustainable technologies for a Smarter Society: exploit the underlying technologies, components and systems that are needed for the deployment of sustainable ICT solutions (e.g. green ICT, smart things, complex and control systems, nano-electronics, micro-systems).
  • Smart services and applications for a Smarter Society: designing, building and deploying interoperable infrastructures, open platforms and scalable solutions exploiting new trends in Future Internet experimentation and open data. One of the key challenges will be to explore data "mash up" processes which synthesizes new information by collecting, connecting, reusing, combining and semantically aggregating disjoint information extracted from a plethora of sources, such as information generated by users (e.g. through social networks), captured from sensors or made available by public authorities (e.g. GIS, traffic).
  • Hybrid broadcast-broadband TV applications and services: address a new generation of TV applications taking advantage of the widespread Internet connectivity will be developed, both for commercial use and for educational or other public goals.
