AIRISE uses calls to initiate cooperation between people on AI-in-manufaturing. All of these calls ask for ideas that facilitate manufacturing either for ecology, for efficiency, for resilience of just to make people's life better. The aim is to teach and to connect so that new solutions can be developed that make companies more competitive.
Our Open Call for Experiments calls for proposals where AI shall play a key role in your manufacturing environment. We support you with expertise in the fields of:
- Design and Engineering
- Process Monitoring and Control
- Manufacturing Operations
- Supply Chain
Our services will enable you to realise AI driven manufacutring solutions on your shop-floor. For more detail about these services, visit our services pages.
You can apply for this support if your company is a SME or mid-cap and if your challenge is on using AI in manufacturing at your shop-floor. We need a description of your "AI in manufacturing application case", the technical challenge, and your implementation plan. At the base line, we also need fact on how a successful implementation will help your business and why you need our support.
Please use the proposal template for preparation and follow the guide for applicants.
Submission deadline: January 15th, 2024
Maximum budget per party: 40.000 Euros
AIRISE supports manufacturing SMEs to use AI in their environment. That is why the primary applicant needs to be a manufacturing SME. Still, you can join a proposal when the SME is prepared to subcontract you. Rules for this are in the guide for applicants.
The main purpose of AIRISE is to support manufacturing SMEs in their AI journey in their shopfloor; as such this idea cannot be funded under OC2.
Experimentation team is used as a term to account for consortia that want to apply. If you are one entity, they you are the experimentation team. Of course, you will be supported by an AIRISE tutor (your contact point for the project) and by technical experts that are going to provide the selected service to you.
You can select more than one service groups if needed; however, sticking to one would me much more realistic as it regards implementation, given the available resources per proposal.
No, tutors assigned and services provided from the AIRISE consortium are free of charge to you.
A consortium of two partners is eligible (experimentation team). However, a clearly identified lead partner (the end user SME) is needed and the main benefit needs to be towards them.
2.1 needs to be filled in only once. For 2.2-2.4, please fill in the tables twice (once per partner).
Services are provided by AIRISE partners free of charge, up to an amount equal to 2PMs.
To ensure openness, fairness and impartiality in proposal evaluation and selection, AIRISE appoints external experts to assist in the evaluation process.
To work as an expert assisting in the evaluation of proposals, you must declare your interest by applying through the AIRISE website If we would like to engage your services, we will contact you to propose the task assignment and check your availability.
