From Cloud to Edge to IoT for European Data

HORIZON-CL4-2021-DATA-01-05:

Proposal results are expected to contribute to the following expected outcomes:

  • Next generation of higher-level (meta) operating systems for the smart Internet of Things with strong computing capacity at the smart device, system and edge-level, embedded in a compute continuum from IoT-to-edge-to-cloud. Such Operating system should be device independent and implement advanced concepts such as ad-hoc clouds, time-triggered IoT, and decentralised intelligence.
  • Increasing European autonomy in data processing required to support future hyper-distributed applications by building open platforms and an open edge ecosystem including business models, driven by European actors.
  • Achieving trust in these (meta) operating systems among actors in diverse industrial ecosystems by leveraging open standards and – where applicable – open source.
  • Emergence of an open edge ecosystem including midcaps, SMEs and start-ups that foster the up-take of an edge operating system, e.g. through a modular functional spectrum of executable apps and services, for nurturing a European network of innovators and developers.
  • Demonstrators in key industrial and societal applications, which in future require more power at the edge.

HORIZON-CL4-2021-DATA-01-08

Proposal results are expected to contribute to the following expected outcomes:

  • Support structure for the European Computing ecosystem: networking events and vision workshops for the academic and industrial computing community,
  • Yearly updated roadmaps on computing addressing the area from a broad perspective from edge device to edge cloud to cloud to HPC, from scientific to industrial to societal and research applications, and addressing all relevant aspects such as real-time, security, etc.

Data sharing in the common European data spaces

HORIZON-CL4-2021-DATA-01-01

Proposal results are expected to improve the efficiency and the use of trustworthy digital technologies to address the requirements of citizens, companies and administrations/public organisations on privacy and commercial and administrative confidentiality as well as responsible, fair and environmentally friendly (e.g. in terms of energy/carbon/material footprint) data operations in data spaces, across the data life cycle.

Deadline: 21 October 2021 17:00 CET

HORIZON-CL4-2021-DATA-01-03

Proposal results are expected to provide new secure and energy-efficient data management tools improving the usability and discoverability of data in different contexts, covering data provenance, synthetic data generation, data quality management (such as data cleaning, validation, enrichment, co-creation, identification of bias and correlations), improving data interoperability, metadata management (automated ways of labelling and describing data, data linkage), and ensuring data security, privacy and integrity, especially in the context of data spaces.
