H2020 calls related to Open Innovation for 2018/2020

ENoLL has recently collaborated with the OISPG and Institut Mines Telecom in the production of a summary report on relevant H2020 calls related to Open Innovation for the period 2018/2020. A rigorous scanning was made through the original Work Programme to provide a tailored selection of calls for our members and community complying with an agreed Open Innovation criteria:

• A specific attention to ICT and Key Enabling Technologies;

• User driven innovation with the involvement of the users in the research and innovation.

• Quadruple Helix Innovation when government, industry, academia and civil participants work together in research and innovation projects.

• Ecosystem orchestration and management and the roles of clusters in managing Open Innovation.

• Innovation platforms for experimentation with a strong focus on user-centred co-creation, prototyping, test beds and demonstrators.

• Open Innovation for SMEs when SMEs benefit directly from Open Innovation.


The different projects fall under a varied range of categories such as:

• Future and Emerging Technologies;

• Nanotechnologies, Advanced Materials, Advanced Manufacturing and Processing, and Biotechnology;

• Innovation in SMEs;
