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
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.
