Advanced Research Management

FET Open Xtrack

Deadline: January 29, 2013
Overall Budget Call: 15'000'000 

This objective supports the exploration of new and alternative ideas that, because of their risky or non-conventional nature, would not be supported elsewhere in the ICT Workprogramme.

It seeks:

  • foundational breakthroughs as crucial steps towards radically new forms and uses of information and information technologies within a clear long-term vision that is far beyond the state of the art;
  • ambitious proof-of-concept and its supporting scientific foundation, where novelty comes from new, high-risk ideas rather than from the refinement of current ICT approaches;
  • new inter-disciplinary collaborations, possibly with prominent and internationally recognized non-EU research teams where these can provide a significant added value.

Expected Impact

  • opening new avenues of research towards future ICT that may be radically different from present day ICT
