The 2nd Open Call is open now!

Applying For an Open Call of a EU project is not easy. But there’s a lot of help available!

We talked with Project Coordinator, Prof. Dr.-Ing. André Stork from Fraunhofer Institute about the support you will receive from the European Commission being an applicant and where you can get help submitting a proposal.

How to apply to the 2nd Open Call – Interview with André Stork


CloudiFacturing is a project, which is open to new (teams of) participants (3rd parties). With our Open Calls, we are looking for / seeking innovative use cases in the context of the project’s mission.

The mission of CloudiFacturing is to optimize production processes and producibility using Cloud/HPC-based modeling and simulation, leveraging online factory data and advanced data analytics, thus contributing to the competitiveness and resource efficiency of manufacturing SMEs, ultimately fostering the vision of Factories 4.0 and the circular economy. To pursue this mission, computationally demanding production engineering and simulation, as well as data analytics tools, are to be provided as Cloud services to ease accessibility and make their use more affordable.

CloudiFacturing will empower over 60 European organizations (many of them being manufacturing SMEs) and will support about 20 cross-national application experiments that will primarily be selected via two Open Calls.

The First Open Call 2018 started on the 1st. July and closed on the 30th of September.

Official Announcement of the Second Open Call

With this announcement, we would like to draw your attention to our upcoming Call / Request for Proposals to initiate the creative process of generating ideas for Application Experiments. Application Experiments are dedicated sub-projects with a one-year duration that are executed within the scope of CloudiFacturing.

Our Open Call will allow you to propose such an Application Experiment!

With our Open Call, we are looking for / seeking innovative use cases in the context of the project’s mission. The use cases shall clearly state their industrial impact for the involved manufacturing companies, based on their expected benefit from exploiting computational engineering and production services and workflows powered by the CloudiFacturing technology.

You can send your proposal from the 1st of July 2019 to the 30th of September. Stay tuned for more information on how and when you will be able to send your proposal.
