UAB "Getweb" has implemented the EU-funded project No 01.2.1-LVPA-T-844-01-0135 "Search for partners for international R&D initiatives in the field of development of information/computer systems/technologies in EIT events". The total value of the project is EUR 18.787,78. The project is financed by the European Regional Development Fund.
UAB "Getweb" is active in the information technology market and is active in the development, maintenance and support of IT systems and websites. Recently, the company has been focusing on the development of IT systems for business process management. In order to remain competitive, the company does not have sufficient internal resources to effectively develop IT and business process management services. It is therefore necessary to develop international cooperation in the field of R&D&I and to try to exploit the opportunities offered by EU R&D&I initiatives/programmes.
The aim of the project is to develop international partnerships and networking by seeking opportunities to participate in international EU R&D&I initiatives through the EIT.
By participating in events of international R&D&I initiatives, which are made available by the EIT organisations, it will be hoped to find partners to participate in one or more specific international EU R&D&I programmes (Cosme; SME Intrument; Horizon2020, Eureka; Eurostars; etc.). Taking into account that successful participation in a specific international R&D&I initiative depends not only on the potential and objectives of one organisation, but also on the potential and objectives of the potential project partners brought together, the search for opportunities to develop R&D&I internationally will not be limited to a single EU R&D&I programme, but will seek to take advantage of the potential of all the initiatives/programmes identified, which, by their provisions, encourage or do not restrict the development of project-based initiatives to develop R&D&I projects related to the development and deployment of information/computer-based systems/technologies and to the processing of information.
The EIT events will seek to establish contacts with international partners (research and study institutions; companies; clusters) that are developing R&D&I activities in one of the following areas: (a) Information and Communication Technologies; (b) Cyber Security; (c) eGovernment; (d) Artificial Intelligence Solutions (e) Automation; (f) Information Resources and Data Security Technologies; (g) Big Data Processing Technologies; (h) Open Data Services etc. International partner - an entity operating in the EU and/or associated countries necessary for the development of joint activities, i.e. the development of services, products or systems by pooling the skills, experience and working methods of partners.
As a mobilising factor for the partners to cooperate, the applicant will have a project-based R&D&I initiative which would focus on the development of R&D&I activities to (a) research methods and tools for cyber security solutions; (b) develop and deploy e-safety models; (c) research and develop effective document, customer relationship and process safety management technologies; (d) research and develop data virtualisation, cloud computing, digital media technologies focused on modelling, optimisation and automation of data safety processes, etc.
It is expected that active participation in the events will lead to the signing of at least one agreement with the international partners, i.e. a legally binding contract/agreement binding the Applicant and the international partner to jointly apply for international R&D&I initiatives/programmes.
