Assist IoT Open Call #1

Every Open Call applicant must select one challenge of one of the project pilots – (i) port automation, (ii) smart safety of workers and (iii) cohesive vehicle monitoring and diagnostics.

Proposals must contribute to the ASSIST-IoT paradigm by validating some of its technologies in one challenge of one pilot. All the previous can be summarised, in general, in:

  • Design, implementation and integration of interoperable device layer components, based on different low-level communication standards or on ad-hoc proprietary device solutions.
  • Design, implementation and integration of interoperable networking layer components, based on different standards higher-level communication standards or on ad-hoc proprietary networking solutions to be tested in ASSIST-IoT pilots.
  • Design, implementation and integration of interoperable middleware layer components. These need to deal with the different middleware services such as discovery, management, querying, coordination and interaction.
  • Design, implementation and integration of interoperable application service components. These should exploit major standards and be integrated with ASSIST-IoT API.
  • Design, implementation and integration of interoperable data and semantics components. Specifically, semantics layer components have to deal with heterogeneous IoT ontology matching.
  • Design, implementation and integration of virtualization mechanism for smart objects, including context aware mechanisms and transfer of virtual objects between servers and cloud platforms.
  • Design, implementation and integration of fog/edge/cloud support mechanisms, including support for different services, inter cloud mechanisms applied to IoT and support for virtualization.
  • Design, implementation and integration of AI/ML libraries and tools addressing ASSIST-IoT pilots.

Project full name: Architecture for Scalable, Self-*, human-centric, Intelligent, Secure, and Tactile next generation IoT
Project acronym: ASSIST-IoT
Deadline: 28 February 2022, at 17.00 (CET – Brussels time)
Expected duration of participation: 9 months
Total EU funding available: €420 000 (€60 000 per proposal – max)
Submission & evaluation process:

Submission: The application must be done via visiting the form, fulfilling mandatory fields and properly submitting the Proposal using the Proposal Template. The submission will be open and available to receive proposals from 1 November 2021 to 28 February 2022, 17:00 CET. Incomplete proposals will not be evaluated. Notifications on funding or rejections will be sent out to applicants, together with any feedback, by 19 May 2022.
Evaluation process: Every proposal will go through a transparent evaluation process carried out by two external experts and an observer to guarantee impartiality. Proposals will be scored up to 25 points based on the criteria: (i) Relevance to ASSIST-IoT, (ii) Impact and sustainability, (iii) Technical Excellence, (iv) Quality of Implementation and (v) Quality of Team. All proposals will receive an evaluation report (ESR) attached to the letter of acceptance/rejection.
