CHIST-ERA is a consortium of research funding organisations in Europe and beyond supporting use inspired basic research in Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) or at the interface between ICT and other domains. The CHIST-ERA consortium is itself supported by Horizon 2020 and is part of the European Innovation Council’s Pathfinder programme.

CHIST-ERA fully joins the Open Science agenda of Horizon Europe following the principle ‘as open as possible, as closed as necessary’:

1. The network proposes an original policy framework, encompassing national/regional policies, for the researchers to shape their projects in line with highest standards of open access practices;

2. With a focus on emerging ICT, CHIST-ERA further accompanies this effort by supporting R & D projects on key enabling tools, services and standards aimed at facilitating and promoting open access, within and beyond ICT research domains.

Topic focus of 2023 Call: Security and Privacy in Decentralised and Distributed Systems (SPiDDS); Machine Learning-based Communication Systems, towards Wireless AI (WAI)

The challenges and promising research and development directions of the call topic were identified following an online workshop bringing together researchers from across a range of research communities and countries and Open Science experts and consultation of the Open Science Advisory Board of CHIST-ERA.

This call tackles the challenge of open research data and software from the perspective of their possible reuse. The objective is to create the conditions for research in any domain based on open or shared data and software.
