ICT-10-2016 - Software Technologies
Research and Innovation Actions
Proposals may cover one or both of the themes identified below.<ol style="list-style-type:lower-alpha" level="0">
The Commission considers that proposals requesting a contribution from the EU of between EUR 3 and 5 million would allow this area to be addressed appropriately. Nonetheless, this does not preclude submission and selection of proposals requesting other amounts.
Proposals should provide appropriate metrics for the claimed impacts:
- Reduction of the time to market of the new generations of software enabled products and services;
- A significant and substantiated productivity increase in all aspects of software life-cycle especially for distributed systems;
- Ability to meet software quality levels required by a fast growing number of software-enabled products and services;
- Increased reuse of code, design or functional requirements in the development of new software.
Software is an enabling technology underlying all ICT developments. Recent advances in the areas of Cloud, Internet of Things, and Big Data increase the need for programming and modelling methods, platforms and software reuse that facilitate the development of more interconnected, flexible, reliable, secure and efficient software. The convergence and interrelationship of all these technologies require a holistic approach in the software development that goes beyond software production within specific application domains.
