About Focused Technology Transfer Experiments (FTTEs)

Focused Technology Transfer Experiments (FTTEs) are novel short-term (9 months) experiments allowing for cross-border synergies that transfer knowledge and technology between academia and industry. FTTEs aim to accelerate product orient projects and offer guidance towards successful commercialization. Within this type of experiments, one party transfers to the receiving partner a specific HW or SW technology in order to enable improved product or processes. In FTTEs, two different entities from two different countries are involved: one Academic and one Industrial partner or two Industrial partners. The Industrial partner acts as the leading partner.

FTTE proposals focus on domains that are not adequately represented in current Smart Anything Everywhere (SAE) projects and include:

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

SMART4ALL will select 4 Pathfinder Application Experiments (PAEs) following a selective process in this 2nd Open Call.
