R&I Roadmap – the State-of-the-Art

R&I Roadmap – the State-of-the-Art

The state-of-the-art (SOTA) refers to the highest level of general advancement reached at a given moment and, in this way identify synergies, research gaps, and possible cooperation within the ATHENA alliance. The R&I roadmap makes it possible to coordinate different research stakeholders toward achieving common goals and advancing scientific efforts.

For this purpose, a Shared Resources Catalogue was created. It presents an excerpt of research challenges and opportunities in the ATHENA alliance and further.

Shared Resources Catalogue

As a preliminary step for developing ATHENA Cooperation Model for R&D, the partnership is to identify common R&I fields and topics with the potential to achieve substantial progress through cooperation within the alliance. For this purpose, a questionnaire to collect data in a standardized and comparable manner is used. The compendium of R&I fields will enable the partnership to pinpoint cooperation opportunities, serving as focus areas for implementing support services within the Cooperation Model for R&D.

Calls for Projects

A list of open calls and funding opportunities is prepared twice per month and internally shared among the ATHENA partners. The aim is to encourage partners to submit joint projects and, in doing so, to strengthen R&I cooperation among ATHENA Partners

As a part of the Shared Resources Catalogue, the web application includes the “ATHENA Joint R&I Projects” list that aims to collect joint projects of the ATHENA alliance partners. In this way, an overview of the facilitation of joint research projects in the ATHENA alliance is possible.
