TagItSmart! is looking for tools to create smart solutions for the whole value chain; manufacturer, transportation, retail, consumer and recycling, In the case of consumer engagement, direct access to production data gives the consumer more value and drives decision making process, and makes it possible for the manufacturer of the product to receive more reliable and real-time consumer behaviour data. TIS has use cases that vary from cold chain quality management, preventing illicit trade/brand protection and feedback on recycling in the home (smart bins).
We are looking for the applicants interested in and capable of executing one or more of the following activities:
1. Category A: New use cases (Pilots) up to 9 Months: applicants that want to test and include TIS solutions in their products or services and particularly those with an existing business need, relevant product and infrastructure.
2. Category B: New extensions (Modules) up to 5 Months: applicants with information, databases, tools or applications for the whole supply chain of products (packaging, production, manufacturing, transportation, retail, consumer and recycling), that want to standardize, adapt and include TIS enablers and/or add new components that extend and improve functionality addressing preferably data privacy, security, Big Data, analytics and consumer engagement.
Note: In any of the aforementioned categories of the 2nd Open Call, organisations may submit more than one applications, however only one may be funded
Both in new pilots and modules, we encourage implementation of technologies like Industry 4.0, Blockchain, Artificial Intelligence, Augmented Reality and context detection for service customization.
For a category A proposal
We are looking for new domains where to execute these activities or, in case they are in a similar application domain of the existing TagItSmart use cases or modules, we are looking for solutions that offer substantial additional features.
- can a research institute be sole applicant or do you advise having an SME partner?
Category A implies first and most important that the participants have the infrastructure to pilot a new use case and show the added business value it brings to their product/service line.
From that point of view, a sole research institute without a business/SME partner will probably be quite difficult to showcase such added business value.
We would rather see category B as more fit for sole research institutes.
Would you be able to provide feedback on where the TagItSmart consortium partners can provide support?
We can provide feedback on general direction of the planned proposal. In addition to the email based feedback, you can also planned Information moments we organize in London, Ghent, Mallorca and Novi Sad. The helpdesk will give further support.
