HORIZON Europe project EARASHI is offering new funding opportunities for start-ups and PMEs. 

EARASHI latest call has a looming deadline on 12 May. EARASHI (Embodied AI/Robotics Applications for a Safe, Human-oriented Industry) launched this open call in February and will follow up with a second call in September this year, to select 10 projects distributing €2M among them.

The selected projects should address one of EARASHI’s 10 challenges defined by the EARASHI Advisory Board, and address EARASHI’s overall scope, which is to: 

  • Support the industry in the uptake of advanced digital eco-responsible technologies (AI, Data, and Robotics). 
  • Support workers in their daily activities and improve their working conditions (safety, health, and well-being) leading to a productivity increase. 
  • Adopt a worker-centric approach by considering worker well-being and health at work (e.g. MSD and stress), design thinking methodology of production machines, worker acceptance, and Ethics 

This means that funding opportunities are available for start-ups and SMEs in your network. EARASHI is an EU-funded project under the framework of the Horizon Europe programme and is offering cascade funding of up to 200,000 euros for each Application Experiment that will be selected. 

The call for applications will be open until the 12th May. Visit the EARASHI website to find out more and download all the useful documents for the application, on this link

A series of webinars will be organized and the programme will be available soon. See the website for details.
