European Coordinated Research on Long-term ICT and ICT-based Scientific and Technological Challenges

Project description

International collaboration in ICT

CHIST-ERA is a programme for European coordinated research on long-term information and communication technologies (ICT) and ICT-based scientific challenges. It is a coordination and cooperation activity of national and regional research funding organisations mainly in Europe. The aim is to reinforce the transnational collaboration between the participating states in challenging multidisciplinary research in the ICT and ICT-based areas with the potential to lead to significant breakthroughs. On a yearly basis, the partner organisations identify emerging scientific fields, allowing researchers to engage in high-risk, high-impact projects by launching a transnational call for research proposals. The EU-funded CHIST-ERA IV project addresses two separate topics: explainable machine learning-based artificial intelligence and novel computational approaches for environmental sustainability.


"CHIST-ERA is a network of research funding organisations in Europe and beyond with programmes in Information and Communication Science and Technology (ICST), at the intersection of the FET and the ICT and ICT-based domains. CHIST-ERA IV ERA-NET aims at supporting transnational research projects addressing long-term scientific challenges in the domain of ICT or at the interface between ICT and other domains. It also fosters the maturation of the corresponding research topics and the structuration of the corresponding communities. Another goal is to encourage Open Science best practices, raise awarness about responsible Research and Innovation and support the exploitation of the research projects funded by CHIST-ERA by the industry. In the framework of CHIST-ERA IV, three joint transnational calls are planned (the Calls 2019, 2020 and 2021), each covering two topics. The two topics for the Call 2019 are ""Explainable Machine Learning-based Artificial Intelligence"" and ""Novel Computational Approaches for Environmental Sustainability"". The topics for the Calls 2020 and 2021 will be decided in 2019 and 2020 respectively."
