The CHIST-ERA ERA-NET is a consortium of funding organisations in Europe and beyond with programmes supporting ICST. The consortium is itself supported by the European Union’s Future & Emerging Technologies scheme (FET). CHIST-ERA promotes multidisciplinary and transnational ICT research with the potential to lead to significant breakthroughs. The funding organisations jointly support research projects selected in the framework of CHIST-ERA, in order to reinforce European capabilities in selected topics. The Call 2017, to be published in October 2017, addresses two new and hot topics:

Object recognition and manipulation by robots: Data sharing and experiment reproducibility (ORMR)

Industrial big data and process modelling for smart factories (IBDSF)

The short topic descriptions for these two topics have been published on the main CHIST-ERA website, and are also available as a flyer . The anticipated country participation is also provided on the same web page. 

The CHIST-ERA Conference 2017 in Kraków, from the 21st to the 23rd of June, 2017, brings together scientists working in these research areas and CHIST-ERA representatives to refine the topics contour and scope of the Call 2017. The full topic descriptions, to appear in the call text, will take into account the conference outcomes.

All attendees are invited to participate in plenary and facilitated break-out sessions to identify and formulate the promising scientific and technological challenges at the frontier of research. High level keynote talks by internationally renowned scientists and poster presentations will further contribute to the discussions. This event represents a unique opportunity for the scientific community to directly participate in scoping the call topics content and exchanging their views on the future of the domain with their peers. Many successful CHIST-ERA research proposals have been initiated at CHIST-ERA conferences.
