Horizon 2020: FET FLAGSHIPS - Tackling Grand Interdisciplinary Science and Technology Challenges
Call identifier: FETFLAG-02-2017
In April 2016, the Commission adopted, with its European Cloud Initiative, an ambitious strategy in the field of Digital Technologies. It was accompanied by a staff working document on Quantum Technologies, announcing the intention to set-up a Flagship initiative over the next 10 years. The present call topic is for a Coordination and Support Action to support the community in establishing the flagship initiative and its coordination with national activities in the field.
Proposals should aim at coordinating the relevant stakeholders, notably academia and industry, as well as policy makers, addressing all of the following:
Establish a communication platform for all stakeholders;
Promote the objectives of the Flagship;
Facilitate connections between industry and academia;
Help shaping the Flagship Initiative during and beyond H2020;
Organize outreach events;
Facilitate dialogue between all stakeholders (policy, industry, academia);
Help the networking of respective national and international activities in the field.
It is expected that such an activity is driven by the relevant actors of the field including both academia and industry.
