The fourth call for SMART projects has been launched. From now until December 14, those interested can send the Project Outlines (PO).

The Project Outline (PO) provides a brief overview of the concept, the objectives of the project and the consortium that will carry it out, even if these are not fully defined. With the PO you get advice and feedback for the second phase of Full Project Proposal (FPP). Although participants can submit their proposals directly in the FPP phase, it is advisable to participate in the OP phase because of the information it provides in the first steps of the project's preparation.

The OP is used for shortlisting proposals, gathering preliminary information, and holding budget discussions between SMART and the respective funding agencies, and for general information exchange within SMART. It allows an initial selection between the different ideas presented, with a minimum of workload for the consortia.

The PO Proposers' Day will take place online on November 5, 2020.

Those who have an innovative project idea on advanced manufacturing and want to form an international consortium to develop it, can join the online event on November 5, 2020.
