  18. 18. Call 2019  Call topics draft description is online at www.chistera.eu  Explainable Machine Learning-based Artificial Intelligence  Novel Computation Approaches for Environmental Sustainability  24 research funding organisations interested in Europe + Québec (Canada)  List of countries considering joining the call is available at www.chistera.eu  Final list to be published in the Call Announcement  Note: List of countries may differ from the list of CHIST-ERA members  Launch expected in September/October 18
  19. 19. Explainable Machine Learning-based AI  Machine learning algorithms, especially deep neural networks, have become very popular  Usually, these algorithms transfer input data into abstract representations that are highly effective but considered as ‘black boxes’  However, for many applications, it is essential that detailed information on the prediction is given to users  The objective of research on this topic is to make machine learning algorithms explainable, thereby reducing vulnerability and adding transparency 19
  20. 20. Novel Computational Approaches for Environmental Sustainability  In order to anticipate the effects of concrete actions on the Earth’s ecosystems and climate and to manage the available resources in a provably sustainable way, it is essential to understand and precisely model them  There is still a need for more data with a better coverage and higher spatial and temporal resolutions, for improved integration of heterogeneous data into coherent models, and more generally for enhanced models and simulations  For that purpose, novel approaches to big data collection and curation, e.g. based on crowdsourcing, and to model development, e.g. based on statistics and machine learning, potentially leading to new applications, should be developed 20
  21. 21. Application Guidelines 21
  22. 22. European and National/Regional Activities  European level  Formation of collaborative projects  Submission of proposals  Evaluation and ranking  Funding recommendation  Contact point: CHIST-ERA Call Secretariat  National/Regional level  For some countries, a separate application to the respective funding organisation by a project partner from that country is needed  Formal implementation, grant agreement  One National Contact Point (NCP) for the funding organisation 22
  23. 23. Joint Funding Instrument 23 Austria (FWF) Belgium (FNRS) … Yearly call with 2 emerging topics UK (UKRI) National/regional funders CHIST-ERA Transnational projects  No funding across borders  Each project partner is funded separately by the respective funding organisation (no common pot)
  24. 24. Requirements from the Consortia  Formation of consortia  At least 3 partners from 3 countries participating in the call topic (3-3 rule)  Research should be focused on a clearly defined goal, i.e. typically not more than 6 partners is recommended  Consortia should be balanced: Not more than 60% of the total requested funding should be incurred by a single funding organisation  Additional partners  Research groups from countries whose funding organisations are not in the call may join a project consortium as long as they are able to secure their own funding  These groups/institutions do not count for the 3-3 rule 24
  25. 25. Application Procedure  Two-step submission procedure with short- and full proposals  Each consortium specifies one coordinator  Single point of contact for the call secretariat  The coordinator must be based in a country participating in the call  For each project partner, one PI is the point of contact at the national/regional level  Prior to submission, each PI has to consult with her/his funding organisation regarding eligibility issues:  Eligibility of the institution (university, academic institutions, industry,…)  Position of the PI (e.g. permanent staff,…)  Eligible costs  The proposal is submitted through the ANR online submission platform  Some funding organisations require additional national/regional forms at this stage! 25
  26. 26. Evaluation  Evaluation by an international evaluation panel and remote reviewers  Evaluation criteria:  Relevance to the Topic (only in the 1st step of the evaluation)  S/T Quality: Scientific and/or technological excellence  Implementation: Quality and efficiency of the implementation and management  Impact: Potential impact through the development, dissemination and use of project results 26
  27. 27. Funding  The Call Steering Committee recommends projects for funding to the funding organisations  Information flow:  The Call secretariat informs all coordinators (outcome of the process, evaluation consensus report)  Information of each PI by the project proposal coordinator  Contracting phase at the national/regional level  Separate grant agreement for each partner 27
  28. 28. Tentative Timeline June 11-13, 2019 Call 2019 topics definition conference September / October 2019 Call publication on CHIST-ERA website (www.chistera.eu) December 2019 / January 2020 1st step submission deadline April / May 2020 2nd step submission deadline 28
