The HosmartAI project – “Hospital Smart development based on AI” has announced the launch of its Open Call #2 – EXPERIMENT – Call for Pilots, with a total budget of €580k available to consortia of 2-3 partners.
EXPERIMENT is the second and last Open Call planned in the HosmartAI project. In this second call for pilots, the project aims to increase the outreach and adoption of the HosmartAI platform, by supporting the deployment of new pilots across the EU, within various types of healthcare entities.
The applicants submitting the best 4 proposals will be invited to a 12-month programme to deploy their AI and Robotic pilots for smart healthcare. Each selected consortium will be provided with grants up to €145k, support services for the development of their experimental pilot, access to the HosmartAI ecosystem, visibility and the opportunity to work with innovative European healthcare stakeholders.
How does it work?
HosmartAI Open Call #2 invites consortia of 2-3 partners to apply, representing at least one tech provider/integrator (SME/Startup) and one end-user (healthcare facility). Competence centres like research centres, academia, or other SME/Startup supporting the integration of the experimental pilot in the healthcare industry are also welcome as an optional partner.
The top four proposals will be invited to join the programme comprising 3-phases:
- DESIGN (2 months) – Fine-tune the pilot planning and technology usage with HosmartAI
- DEVELOP, DEPLOY, OPERATE (6 months) – Perform the technological developments and deploy them
- Assess (4 months) – Focus on the assessment and exploitation of results
