A guide to ICT-related activities in WP2016-17

As a generic technology, ICT is present in many of the H2020 areas. This guide is designed to help potential proposers find ICT-related topics across the different parts of H2020 in work programme 2016-17.

Like in 2014-15 ICT actions supported through the work programme will allow covering the full innovation chain, from basic research to market uptake:

  • Advanced research to uncover radically new technological possibilities and ICT contributions to upstream research and innovation are addressed in the ‘Excellent science’ part of the work programme, respectively under ‘Future and Emerging Technologies’ and ‘European research infrastructures’ (‘eInfrastructures’);
  • Research and innovation activities on generic ICT technologies either driven by industrial roadmaps or through a bottom up approach are addressed in the ‘Leadership in enabling and industrial technologies’ (LEIT) part of the work programme;
  • Multi-disciplinary application-driven research and innovation leveraging ICT to tackle societal challenges are addressed in the different ‘Societal challenge'
