New: FET Proactive: emerging paradigms and communities
Scope: Proposals are sought for cutting-edge high-risk / high-reward research and innovation projects that aim to demonstrate a new technological paradigm within the scope of one of the following sub-topics:
a. Future technologies for social experience. This sub-topic explores new technologies for interaction that are based on new kinds of immersion for virtualised or augmented social interaction and that will lay the basis for the social media in 10-20 years from now. The sub-topic addresses the redefinition of the personal and social interaction space in light of increasing virtualisation, space-time displacement, information pressure, ubiquitous intelligence, uncertainty and trust issues (dis- and mis-information, anomaly detection in information sources and content, unwanted information, and similar concepts in the social realm, like opinion dynamics and social believe formation). Technologically this will be driven by a more active role of the interaction environment and an ever tighter coupling of the technologies with sensori/motor- and cognitive processes through advanced and multimodal XR setups, including for instance spatial audio, smart skins, haptics, wearable or other minimally invasive interfaces. Impacts on a ’person’s self-perception and behaviour, gender differences, the formation of knowledge and believes, the theory of mind and brain and the ability to act and interact should also be studied, especially in scenarios of extensive and always-on use.
b. Measuring the unmeasurable – Sub-nanoscale science for Nanometrology. This sub-topic seeks to find and test new approaches for nano- and sub-nano metrology. Proposals should target new techniques, for example, physics-, biochemistry- and chemistry-based methods incorporating nano- and picometre-length scales in the spatial domain with femto- and atto-seconds in the temporal domain. The proposal must address research from a novel measurement concept up to a technique and/or method including prototype measuring devices/setups and procedures, and sound metrological aspects like quantification of uncertainty or traceability. Proposals should seek to approach theoretical limits in challenging domains (physical, chemical, biological) while minimising any potential damage or change to the object being measured.
c. Digital twins for the life-sciences. The sub-topic aims at the close integration and real-time interaction of dynamical models of biological structures (from biochemical pathways to cells, tissues, organs and individuals), with imaging and sensing technologies for biological mechanisms and processes. It extends concepts and technologies of digital twins beyond their industrial versions, which are typically supporting the life-cycle of engineered products, into the domain of the life sciences. The core challenge is to derive and update the digital twin using information from the imaging, sensing and monitoring of its biological counterpart, taking the achievements of systems biology, metabolomics and systems medicine into account.
Specific Challenge: New synergies between the distant communities of environmental modelling, advanced sensor research, social sciences, and artificial intelligence can lead to radically new approaches to creating and using dynamic models of the environment, including predictive modelling and scenario testing and tracking. The ultimate vision is to use the fusion and analysis of this rich, dynamic data coming from a variety of sensing modalities and their characteristic locations to build a deeper understanding of the socio-environmental inter-relationships, for example, by testing and validating complex theoretical models.
Scope: Proposals are expected to have their main focus in only one of the following sub-topics: a. new techniques for creating and using dynamic models of environmental evolution that combine, analyse and interpret data provided by in-situ sensing technologies with satellite remote sensing/earth observation and other environmental data sources, including human behaviour and gender differences, and economics and social sciences. The focus is on a better understanding of the interplay dynamics of natural and societal systems, for example on how policies and economics modelling predict human behaviours’ impact on the environment, how social norms interact with the environment evolution and exploitation, or how the decisions based on changes in the environment in turn affect the state of the natural environment and vice-versa. b. radically novel approaches to resilient, reliable and environmentally responsible in-situ monitoring. In-situ sensing technologies (physical, chemical, biological, behavioural) for environmental monitoring, in particular favouring sensors for parameters and environments that are currently under-sampled but at the same time critical for improving predictive models for understanding environmental processes. Proposals should look for ground-breaking concepts of affordable sensor deployment, spanning maintenance, communication and retrieval, possibly based on concepts like self-deployment, self-awareness, self-repair and controlled decomposition; or using new concepts from micro-robots to optimise sensing or increase monitoring frequency. Projects are to focus on one or a few critical resources (e.g., water, air) and to establish fundamental advances on the most critical challenges that will underpin a step improvement in monitoring, analysis and management of important social/environmental processes for improving quality of life and environmental sustainability (possibly including aspects of waste, noise, …). Citizen involvement, for example for prioritizing resource challenges, data collection, raising awareness towards environmental issues or better understanding of behavioural change in relation to environmental sustainability, is encouraged, in line with the discussion on Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) in the introduction to this FET work programme. The collected and simulated data should adhere to the FAIR data principle and be compliant with European Standards.

Scope: Small Collaborative Partnerships will allow organisations to develop and reinforce networks, increase their capacity to operate at transnational level, exchange good practices, confront ideas and methods in different areas relating to sport and physical activity. Selected projects may also produce tangible outputs and are expected to disseminate the results of their activities, although in a way that is proportional to the aim and scope of the project. Small Collaborative partnerships involve various organisations including in particular public authorities at local, regional and national levels, sport organisations, sport-related organisations and educational bodies.
Small Collaborative Partnerships are, in particular, projects aimed to:
- Encourage social inclusion and equal opportunities in sport;
- Promote European traditional sports and games;
- Support the mobility of volunteers, coaches, managers and staff of non-profit sport organisations;
- Protect athletes, especially the youngest, from health and safety hazards by improving training and competition conditions;

EIC Horizon Prize for 'Fuel from the Sun: Artificial Photosynthesis'
For the purpose of this prize, artificial photosynthesis is understood to be a process that aims at mimicking the physical chemistry of natural photosynthesis by absorbing solar energy in the form of photons. The solution is required to use this energy to generate fuel molecules through a synthetic system to be delivered as a single integrated device that utilises either biomimetic, nanotechnology, synthetic biology or a combination of these systems.
Meeting the challenge will stimulate innovation and focus research and development towards energy applications in a new energy technology through increased public and commercial interest. Moreover, it will accelerate the development of new innovative energy conversion systems using solar light and natural elements to produce renewable fuels to be used in industry, housing and transport.
