The SPIRIT consortium is thrilled to announce the launch of the SPIRIT project’s first Open Call, a unique funding opportunity to pioneer real-time immersive telepresence applications.  

The goal of the Open Call is to engage a wide range of organisations in Europe, including SMEs, Industry, Research/Scientific Organisations and Academia, to develop, test, and validate specific applications in various vertical sectors.  

The SPIRIT partners aim to select 10 organisations or consortia (comprising up to 3 entities) to develop their third-party projects on the SPIRIT platform. To develop their projects, successful applicants will receive up to €200,000 in funding, access to the SPIRIT platform, and expert mentoring from a dedicated SPIRIT Consortium Patron. 

This is a unique opportunity for interested organisations to help shape the next generation of immersive telepresence applications in Europe and transform the way we communicate and work together.
