Instrument #2: Ecosystem Challenges

Submission deadline 2019-04-30 16:00:00 (UTC)

Project RobMoSys, co-funded from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 732410, foresees as an eligible activity the provision of financial support to third parties, as a means to achieve its own objectives.

RobMoSys’s main goal is to create and consolidate an EU Digital Industrial Platform for Robotics to establish a common methodology for model-based software development, improve tools and foster interoperability by model interchange and composability. The Open Calls for Contributions to RobMoSys is one of the means implemented to achieve this goal.


Instrument #2: Ecosystem Challenges

This instrument aims at strengthening the RobMoSys ecosystem with in-depth developments on the RobMoSys baseline(models, tools, components, architectural patterns). Submissions of ITPs must fit one or more of the following technical topics:

  • Topic 1: ROS 2 and Model-Driven Software Development
  • Topic 2: Functional composition inside components
  • Topic 3: System level composition / safety
  • Topic 4: System level predictability of properties, Navigation
  • Topic 5: System level predictability of properties, Manipulation
  • Topic 6: OPC UA Robotics
  • Topic 7: Open topic


Upon close inspection of the regulations concerning Financial Support to Third Parties (FSTP) in Horizon2020 it turned out, that the Instrument #4 cannot be funded in its originally foreseen form. Therefore, the second RobMoSys open call had to be amended and the Instrument #4 is no longer a part of it. The budget initially allocated to this instrument has been reallocated to the other three. The Guide for Applicants has been changed accordingly. The parts related to the Instrument #4 have been removed and the financial aspects of the other instruments have been updated.
