Community-Lab is part of the Fed4FIRE federated testbeds. As part of that there’s a call to fund experiments from SME (typically European but other countries may apply). See below. You can get up to 25,000 € with a quite lightweight application.
2ndFed4FIRE competitive call for SME Experimenters – An instrument for SME’s to get involved in FIRE activities
Get involved in Future Internet … Get access to advanced Future Internet testbeds … Get funding for running your own experiments on these testbeds…
Fed4FIRE has just launched its 2nd Open Call specifically targeting SMEs using a simplified and fast application and review process. The major objective of this Open SME Call 2 is to make the federated infrastructure easier and more directly available for execution of innovative experiments by experimenters at SMEs. These experiments should be of a short duration (maximum 4 months) and should demonstrate technological expertise, novelty and quality in the area of Future Internet (e.g. in domains such as wired and wireless IP networks, cloud computing, software defined networks and innovative Internet services).
The SME experimenters should seek contact with the Fed4FIRE consortium partners prior to submitting their proposal for a feasibility check of the project. One of the Fed4FIRE partners will also act as a “Patron” during the execution of the experiment and will receive an additional funding of up to 10k to provide direct support to the SME.
Max. funding request per experiment of 25 000 (+ 10 000 for Fed4FIRE partner acting as patron)
Submission deadline: 30 October 2014, at 17:00 Brussels local time
