First Knowledge Transfer Experiments Open Call


Knowledge Transfer Experiments (KTE) are a short-term (3 months) internship projects between two different  entities from two different Countries (see eligible countries below):  one Academic/Industrial partner who act as Sending Organization and one  Academic/Industrial partner who act as Host Organization.

Knowledge Transfer Experiments (KTE) comprise  a novel type of experiments allowing smaller projects, or less mature  ideas to be presented, tested and thus potentially find the fertile  ground to grow and reveal its product potentials. 

The  activities that qualify for financial support are related to the  exchange of knowledge of CLEC for CPS and IoT, to be applied in four  SMART4ALL verticals with European leadership and strategic importance:

  • Digitized Transport
  • Digitized Environment
  • Digitized Agriculture
  • Digitized Anything

Financial support

The KTE experiments will be supported with a lump sum of up to EUR 8,000 each to cover mobility allowance for implementing the internship.

The consortia will be free to distribute this amount among the two partners. However:

  • Each  consortium will need to explain in the online application form how the  amount will be distributed between the partners and what category of  costs each partner will be responsible for.
  • The  grant will be paid to the Leading Partner who will be responsible for  its distribution within the consortium. Each consortium will decide  which organisation will be the Leading Partner, but it must always have  an Industrial Partner status (SME or Slightly Bigger company. Details of  the grant distribution among partners will be described in the  Sub-Grant Agreement.
  • Before  deciding on the distribution of expenditure in the project, attention  should be paid to EU and national social security regulations. Social  security costs should be borne by the partner who is obliged to do so  under the above-mentioned regulations.

Deadline: September 15th, 2020 at 13:00 CEST
