SAF€RA Eighth Joint Call Open to Applications

The eighth SAF€RA (Coordination of European Research on Industrial Safety) joint call for transnational, collaborative research projects is titled Health and safety implications of industrial digital twins and algorithmic management, with two topics:

  • Topic 1: Health, safety and sustainability applications of industrial digital twins.
  • Topic 2: Impact of algorithmic management on worker well-being and accident rates.

The total available budget for the call is approximately €1.44 million. Two forms of funding are available:

  • ‘In cash’: research grants for researchers from universities, institutes, research organisations and public firms.
  • ‘In kind’: person-months for personnel from certain participating institutes and research organisations.

Most projects funded within this joint call will be relatively small (two to four partners, duration between 12 and 36 months, with budgets typically between €20,000 and €150,000 per project partner).

The call aims to fund mainly applied research and innovation projects carried out in universities and research institutes, though proposals from industry may also be eligible if they contain a significant research component. Interdisciplinary research is encouraged. Cooperation and joint activities between different consortia funded within the call will be encouraged. Research proposals which adopt a comparative approach (analysing similarities and differences between different European countries, between different industry sectors, between large and small organisations, etc.) are encouraged

In order to foster transnational collaboration, projects funded within this joint call will involve the collaboration of at least two research teams in two eligible countries. All EU member states plus the Republic of Serbia and the United Kingdom are eligible countries.
