From the Information and Communication Technologies Work Programme (Forthcoming Call Topics to be updated on the Participant Portal in June 2019)



Interactive Technologies such as Augmented Reality (AR) are set to transform the ways in which people communicate, interact and share information on the internet and beyond. This will directly impact a larger number of European industries ranging from the cultural and creative industries, manufacturing, robotic and healthcare to education, entertainment and media, enabling new business opportunities. The challenge is to forge a competitive and sustainable ecosystem of European technology providers in interactive technologies.

Competition opens 9th July 2019. Closes: 13th November 2019



The challenge for the media sectors is to compete in this ecosystem and to meet user expectations by rapidly embracing new technologies for creation, management, and distribution of content. The rise of digital also means that actors in culture and specifically artists may have an influential role in shaping the development or the use of technologies for media, as they are often being the first to embrace technological innovation in their work. The challenge for the media industry is to embrace these new viewpoints and actors.

Closes: 16th January 2020



The challenge is to break “data silos” and stimulate sharing, re-using and trading of data assets by launching a second-generation data-driven innovation hub, federating data sources and fostering collaborative initiatives with relevant digital innovation hubs. This shall promote new business opportunities notably for SMEs as part of the Common European Data Space.

Competition opens 9th July 2019. Closes: 13th November 2019
