Our role

The main objective of Trust-IT’s work on communication and dissemination is linked to the management and promotion of the Open Calls with relevant stakeholders, in order to reach a wide number of funded researchers and innovators and boost the cooperation between EU and US through research.

The main expexted results are the calls management platform and definition of the open call processes, the set up of a Twinning Lab, acting as bridge between EU and US innovators, a minimum of 30 EU-US NGI experiments and 50+ EU/US organisations receiveing funding, the completion of 5 cycles of applications targeting 30+ proposals, 150+ specialists supported, 6 webinars, 5 workshops and a 2030 Priority Landscape report.

The EU-US cooperation activities through the 4 Open Calls were completed with a total of 96 applications received and 20 projects funded.
