Most recently two open call were launched in relation to opportunities that can be addressed to mitigate the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. The calls are open until June 3rd.
If parties want to participate in this open call, there are two possibilities, either for Digital Innovation Hubs (DIHs) or SMEs:
