SMART 6th Call for Projects – Advanced Manufacturing

SMART is a flexible industry-driven EUREKA Cluster on Advanced Manufacturing, whose main objective is the promotion of collaborative and international close-to-market R&D and innovation projects with decentralised national funding.


This year, for the first time, SMART will be using the Cluster Projects Tool that will enable the participants to enter the key project data into the system to automate some subsequent tasks.

The Project Outline (PO) provides a short overview of the concept, the objectives of the project and the partnership even if they are not entirely settled. This document allows early advice and feedback from the evaluation. This step is highly recommended, but participants may submit a Full Project Proposal straightforward.

The PO is used for the pre-selection of proposals, preliminary information and budget discussions between the SMART organisation and the respective Public Authorities and for general information exchange within the SMART organisation. It enables an initial selection among the different submitted ideas, while keeping the workload of consortia to a minimum.


PO Proposers’ Day will be held in Brussels on the 1st of December 2022

If you have an Innovative Project Idea on Advanced Manufacturing and you want to form an International Consortium to develop it, join us at the on – site event we are organising on the 1st of December 2022. You can find detailed information and register for the event in the 6th SMART PO Proposers’ Day website.
