Are you interested in submitting a proposal for the SynchroniCity open call, but you are a bit lost on how to get all the needed information?
The Synchronicity Open Call may seem a little complicated at first, but we are here to help you through the process. We have gathered the most frequently asked question during June and July to come up with a few tips to support you to nail your application!
1. Don’t forget to download the Application Form Template and the Guide on How to Complete your Online Application Form before completing the questionnaires. The Applicant Form Template is including guidelines on what the evaluators will be looking for in each question. The Template can be found here. The Guide on How to Complete your Online Application Form is just here!
2. Beware that infrastructure costs (including a large number of sensors) are not covered by the open call funding as eligible costs. Purchases of small pieces of infrastructure (what we call “material costs”) are eligible. This includes, for example, a couple of sensors or a gateway to make some tests. Please read the Open Call Guideline for Applicants where you can find detailed information on Eligible and Ineligible Costs. The Guide can be found in the Open Call Toolkit for Applicants.
3. Applicants do not need to engage with SynchroniCity 8 Core Pilot Cities (Antwerp, Carouge, Eindhoven, Helsinki, Manchester, Milan, Porto and Santander) during the application stage! When completing the online application form you will be able to select which of the Core Pilot Cities you would like to pilot your solution in. However, beware that you will need to provide a letter of support if you bring a new city as part of your Pilot Group.
