I-NERGY will run for 3 years has an overall budget of approximately €5m and will distribute around €2m among its selected open call beneficiaries. 

The project will launch 2 open calls to select 10 and 15 Bottom-up Projects. The 1st Open Call was targeted to SMEs and Startups developing building blocks for new AI algorithms/services and small-scale experiments with an expected outcome of fully functional prototypes. The 2nd Open Call was targeted to consortiums made up of Start-up / SME (service developer / provider), plus 1 EPES stakeholder to develop MVPs. 

In both cases, the selection process prioritised projects maximising the impact of the platform and demonstrating the benefit of AI in products, processes, or services.
