Info webinar (2nd): ICT-54-2020, 19/11/2019, 11:30 - 12:30


Tue, 19 Nov 2019




Webinar that will be held on 19th of November 2019 (11:30 - 12:30 Brussels time) for the topic ICT-54-2020: Blockchain for the Next Generation Internet, at present being open to submit proposals in the context of Horizon 2020.

The call will close on 16th January 2020 at 17.00.

ICT54-2020 calls for Research and Innovation Actions (RIA) in the following three sub-topics. Proposals should address only one of these sub-topics.

  • Advancing research on Blockchain and Distributed Ledger Technologies
  • Fostering trust in internet information exchange and content with blockchain
  • Bringing forward the emergence of collective intelligence on the internet

Each RIA in the three sub-topics above, through an agile and flexible process, will support third party projects from outstanding academic research groups, hi-tech startups, SMEs and other multidisciplinary actors, so that multiple third parties will be funded in parallel contributing to the research and innovation area. As the primary purpose of the action is to support and mobilise internet innovators, a minimum of 70% of the total requested EU contribution should be allocated to financial support to the third parties. The Next Generation Internet initiative aims at developing a more human-centric Internet supporting values of openness, decentralisation, inclusiveness and protection of privacy and giving the control back to the end-users, in particular of their data. It should provide more transparent and accessible services, more intelligence, greater involvement and participation, leading towards an Internet that is a true engine of growth and social progress.
