With the aim of expanding the DigiPrime ecosystem, including “supply-side participants” that will contribute enhancements to digital platforms and pilot systems, and “demand-side participants”, that will use the services in the federation of platforms, DigiPrime foresees two kinds of open calls having different targets and financing amount.
DigiPrime Open Calls
Open Call type A: Development of new Horizontal value chain oriented (VCO) or vertical operational (OP) services offered by the DigiPrime platform.
The objective of this call is to develop “New functionalities to be included into the platform” or “Services addressing new target groups”. In more details:

Announcement of Open call “Type A”
Open Call type B: Pilots in new sectors using the DigiPrime digital platform, models, and open APIs
The objective of this call is to develop:
B1) Pilots in new sectors not already covered by the DigiPrime Pilots.
B2) New value chains inside the sectors already existing in the DigiPrime platform.
Both types of activities will contribute to expand the DigiPrime ecosystem, including “supply-side participants” (that will contribute enhancements to digital platforms and pilot systems), and “demand-side participants” (that will use the services in the federation of platforms).
Announcement of Open call “Type B”
The open call is addressed and limited to SMEs, as defined in the EU law: (EC recommendation 2003/361/EC as published in the Official Journal of the European Union L 124, p. 36 of 20 May 2003), also in form of small consortia of SMEs. All organizations (SMEs) eligible for Horizon 2020 will be eligible to submit proposals for the open calls, except for the consortium’s partners and other parties that may have conflicts of interest. Other entities not eligible for funding under Horizon 2020 can also apply as consortium partners but they must bear their project costs.
