Call for Proposals FET Open FP7-ICT-2013-C Closed!


FET-Open is a light, topic-agnostic and deadline free scheme specifically designed to be open and continuously responsive to novel and fragile ideas that challenge current thinking, whenever they arise and wherever they come from. It aims at foundational breakthroughs that can open radically new directions for information and communication technologies in the future.

Although FET is open to broad participation, two new objectives specifically aim to give leadership to young researchers and high-tech research-intensive SMEs.
