BonsAPPs Open Call for SMEs


BonsAPPs launches its last open call with 1M EUR in funding to support SMEs in developping customized Artificial Intellligence at Edge solutions!

Funding Opportunity

BonsAPPS is an EU-funded H2020 project that will help SMEs in their digitalization process by allowing them to access and implement Artificial Intelligence (AI) in an easy and affordable way through Bonseyes AI Marketplace, a high-quality AI-as-a-Service Platform that reduces time and cost of AI@Edge development, and can be used to develop AI@Edge solutions.  

With its BonsAPPs last Open Call that accepts applications until 2nd of November 2022 at 17:00 CET (Brussels Time), BonsAPPs aims to select up to 11 small and medium-sized companies (SMEs) with a clear idea of how AI at Edge can be applied in their company. Applicants should have a minimum knowledge of Edge Solution and demonstrate availability of good-quality (preferable commercial) data in order to be able to reach the expected results within 6 months of the support programme.

On top of that, each selected Adopter will receive equity free grant of 74k EUR that will be divided into direct grant to cover SMEs costs, voucher for hiring the AI Experts, and voucher for using HPC resources.

Individual companies, legally established in EU member states, the UK and the Northern Ireland or in one of the Associated Countries that have the status of an SME.
