This is your opportunity to deliver innovation in the digital manufacturing domain and win up to €150.000 per project.

KYKLOS4.0 is looking for innovative solutions to improve digital manufacturing processes and address one or more of the following sub-domains: Cyber-physical systems, Product lifecycle management, Life cycle analysis, Augmented reality, Artificial intelligence, Circular manufacturing, Big data and data management, Deep learning, Decision support systems.

The KYKLOS4.0 Open Call #1 is looking for SME-led consortia of up to three entities to submit project proposals for the development of innovative solutions to improve digital manufacturing processes. Proposed solutions – to be delivered through experiments – should demonstrate a high innovation potential and be ready to explore commercialization opportunities by the end of the experiment period. As part of the experiment, the solution must be validated and demonstrated in a pilot location, which should be provided by one of the applicant’s consortium partners.

Each selected project will be funded with up to €150.000 (for consortia of three entities).

The KYKLOS4.0 Open Call #1 will prioritize the experiments that are able to demonstrate the impact of the KYKLOS 4.0 approach* for a broad set of industrial users. Furthermore, experiments should clearly demonstrate the role of the circular economy within the manufacturing domain in their activities, in combination to the innovation management process.
The experiments should be implemented over a period of six months, divided into three stages: Planning (1 month), Implementation (3- 4 months), and Commercialisation & Business Sustainability (1-2 months).
