COLLABORATIVE 5GINFIRE OPEN CALL
The 5GINFIRE project has organized four competitive open calls for experiments as well as new infrastructures and functionalities granting almost 2,500,000€ to all together 30 sub-projects. Now, the 5GINFIRE is introducing a new mechanism of collaborative open calls targeting all types of organizations interested in performing experiments on the top of the available 5GINFIRE experimental infrastructure.
In alignment with the overall project objectives, the 5GINFIRE project is organizing the collaborative open call targeting external organizations, including industry, SMEs, research institutions, and academia, interested in performing experiments on the top of the infrastructure provided by 5GINFIRE. This 5GINFIRE open call invites experimenters to use the 5GINFIRE experimental facilities, taking advantage of the provided testbed features such as SDN, NFV, and VxFs to test vertical applications and other services in context of the 5G networks.
The 5GINFIRE experimental facilities for the call (available testbeds / infrastructures and experimenters tools) are described on the 5GINFIRE website (https://5ginfire.eu/) along further related details and instructions as well as link to the proposal submission portal.
- There is no funding provided for experimenters participating in this open call. Therefore, the experimenters have to ensure the necessary resources to perform proposed experiments, if accepted, in collaboration with the 5GINFIRE team and the required support.
- There is no minimum or maximum number of experiments defined for acceptance in this open call.
- The best experiments from the open call will be awarded by web presence and invitation to participate and talk at the Final 5GINFIRE Workshop
Submission deadline: 3 July 2019 at 17:00 CET (Brussels local time)
Deadline for feasibility check: 30 June 2019
About the 5GINFIRE project
Evolving FIRE into a 5G-Oriented Experimental Playground for Vertical Industries
5G network infrastructures and embodied technologies are considered as a key asset of this emerging common environment and instrumental for the digitalization of the traditional industries, so-called vertical industry application sectors. Addressing these key questions, the main 5GINFIRE goal is to build and operate an Open, and Extensible 5G NFV-based Reference (Open5G-NFV) ecosystem of Experimental Facilities that not only integrates existing FIRE facilities with new vertical-specific ones but also lays down the foundations for instantiating fully softwarised architectures of vertical industries and experimenting with them.
5GINFIRE is a three-year Research and Innovation action / project under the EU programme Horizon 2020 (Grant Agreement no. 732497) started on 1 January 2017. The EC funding is 4,999,970€, and 50% of this amount is dedicated to third parties, which are selected through the 5GINFIRE Open Calls
