SIM Open Call 2023

SIM Open Call picture

Submissions before May 15th, 2023, have the guarantee to be evaluated and supported on the 2023 budget

The SIM Open Call 2023 is open for project proposals fitting within the framework of any approved and/or running vertical SIM Program and for projects that contribute to material-related solutions for societal challenges.

  • For projects fitting within the framework of a running SIM program, the outcome of the program-related project should directly contribute to the objectives and roadmap of the Program. The fit of the project proposal within the Program roadmap has to be assessed and the Program Management has to agree with the project idea. Project ideas building on the outcome of program-related projects can also be funded without actually being part of the program itself. Contact us for more info.
  • Project ideas related to societal challenges can be supported by SIM directly or from the Intercluster budget portfolio. Contact us for more info.

Please inform SIM of the project idea before starting to work out any detailed proposal. This will enable the SIM team to guide you through the total procedure which will be followed up by SIM in more detail than previously.

Please be aware that the throughput time of proposals is dependent on the project type (and budget). Those consortia that want to make sure their project is funded on the 2023 budget are recommended to submit the project proposal before May 15th, 2023, so that the project can be filed in time. Project proposals submitted before May 15th, 2023, have the guarantee to be evaluated and supported on the 2023 budget.

Projects submitted between May 16th and September 4th might be evaluated and supported on the 2023 budget, depending also on the remaining available budget.
