Description
ExpectedOutcome:

Projects’ results are expected to contribute to outcomes in line with the one or all of the pursued impacts described in the Introduction to the Destination “Effective Management of EU external borders”.


Scope:

Under the Open Topic, proposals are welcome to address new, upcoming or unforeseen challenges and/or creative or disruptive solutions within this Destination that are not covered by the other topics in Horizon Europe Calls Border Management 2021-2022, Border Management 2023 and Border Management 2024.

Adapted to the nature, scope, type and target TRL of proposed projects, proposals should convincingly explain how they will plan and/or carry out demonstration, testing or validation of developed tools and solutions. Proposals should be convincing in explaining the methods they intend to use for demonstrating, testing or validating the proposed tools and solutions. Proposals should also delineate the plans to develop possible future follow-up research and development and/or uptake and upscaling at national and EU level for possible next steps after the research project. In this view, proposals should as well indicate the perspectives for possible future demonstration, testing and validation at further TRLs.

Research proposals should consider, build on if appropriate and not duplicate previous research, including but is not limited to research by other Framework Programmes’ projects.


Specific Topic Conditions:

Activities are expected to achieve TRL 4-6 by the end of the project – see General Annex B.
