DigiPrime Open Calls

With the aim of expanding the DigiPrime ecosystem, including “supply-side participants” that will contribute to enhance the digital platforms and the pilot systems, and “demand-side participants”, that will use the services in the federation of platforms, DigiPrime foresees two different Open Calls, with diverse targets and financing mechanisms, in addition to the Call for External Expert Evaluators https://www.digiprime.eu/call-for-evaluators/.

For transparency and completeness, all the relevant information exchanges between the DigiPrime Open Calls Support Desk Team and the applicants are published here.

To advertise the DigiPrime Open Calls and to support possible applicants, dedicated “Info Day” sessions are organized.
