Call for Application Experiments Based on Advanced Microelectronics & Smart System Integration Targeting Health, Agrifood, and Manufacturing

The EU-funded network of digital innovation hubs DIATOMIC will distribute EUR 1.5 M to European SMEs, midcaps and Competence Centers. DIATOMIC is looking to accelerate development and adoption of new products/processes based on smart electronics and smart systems in health, agrifood, and manufacturing sectors. The call for applications is open from 15 March to 15 June.

Starting from 15 March 2018, DIATOMIC, a pan-European network of Digital Innovation Hubs, is looking to support innovative and scalable application experiments within advanced microelectronics (AME) technologies and smart system integration (SSI) domains. By bringing SMEs/midcaps and Competence Centres together, these experiments will result in quick, low-risk development of AME/SSI based products and processes.

"In both fast moving and competitive markets, the long-term success of higher valued products with 'digital inside' more often than not require resources that are generally out of reach for SMEs/midcaps. Therefore, DIATOMIC will provide the right tools to make experimentation with advanced microelectronics, as well as, smart system integration technologies simple, attainable and effective," says Dr. Raimund Bröchler (INTRASOFT Intl), DIATOMIC coordinator.

Designed as a one-stop shop, DIATOMIC pulls together resources and expertise from each Digital Innovation Hub, offering a comprehensive service package: advanced testbed and experimentation facilities, needs-based business and matchmaking services, and much more.

Small consortia consisting of 2 to 3 partners, from the EU and associated countries are invited to apply for up to €200,000 per application experiment. Microelectronics components and smart system integration are considered as an essential part of proposed technological concepts, starting from a Technology Readiness Level (TRL) of 3. In addition, consortia are requested to provide an initial exploitation plan for their experiments. Following selection and evaluation process, each experiment will enter DIATOMIC Design-Develop-Market program lasting between 9 and 15 months.

"We are looking for promising AME/SSI based products and services to serve and disrupt health, agrifood, and manufacturing sectors and will support them from prototype to market - in terms of technology, funding, and business support," comments Dr. Bröchler. Tech-providers can sign up for DIATOMIC one-stop shop platform - which enables them to offer their resources/facilities through one of our innovation hubs and subsequently cater to the needs of SMEs/midcaps. Additionally, for the purposes of consortium building, SMEs/midcaps can refer to DIATOMIC brokerage helpdesk on F6S.
