TRINITY Robotics DIHs has launched its second open call to support European manufacturing SMEs to boost  recovery with agile manufacturing solutions. Apply before 1st June and receive financial and technical support to  demonstrate robotics, IoT and cybersecurity technologies to increase the SME’s productivity. 

European manufacturing SMEs have been critically hit by the restrictive measures implemented to counter the Covid-19  pandemic, with many of them forced to shut down their businesses.  

After a successful first call granting funds to 19 demonstrators, TRINITY is back with a second call to give you the opportunity  to receive financial and technical support. This initiative aims to improve the agility and productivity of manufacturing supply  chains by applying advanced robotic technologies together with new digital and cybersecure solutions.  

The open call is designed to grant SME-led consortia of 2-3 partners cascade funding of up to €200,000 for 10-month  experiments. 

The consortia wishing to apply for TRINITY open call can choose use cases and modules developed by the TRINITY Partners and  which are available in the catalogue, or choose to present their own demonstrators.  

The call is open from 14th February until 1st June 2021. This new call encourages the participation of women-led SMEs, and to  form transnational consortia to highlight the European dimension of the TRINITY project.  

To facilitate a cross-border consortia, and to drive SMEs in the application procedure, TRINITY DIHs have confirmed a workshop  on ‘How to submit a competitive TRINITY proposal’ on the 9th March, and a brokerage event to help you finding the right partner  on the 25th of March.  

Eligibility criteria, guidelines, and details on how to participate in the events are available on the Trinity website
