Scope and ambition
In autumn 2020, the JPP ERA-Net SES launched its new focus area "EnerDigit” in close cooperation with Mission Innovation. With this new outline and a call for research, development and demonstration (RDD) projects, JPP ERA-Net SES is building bridges in the entire innovation chain. Partners from the ICT domain, business development and governmental institutions, start-ups and small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) as well as financers and funders are involved. To that end, a broad activation and matchmaking process has already been launched.

This 2nd round call for Expression of Interest now again addresses DPPs as partners for RDD projects. It seeks for yet further ICT partners that offer technologies and services or parts of solutions that help build intelligent energy systems, potentially linking to other digital ecosystems. Such DPPs shall provide hardware, software and/or knowledge for RDD projects funded in the framework of JPP ERA-Net SES.

DPPs may provide solutions on all or specific hardware and software layers, according to their individual platform architecture. Within the JPP ERA-Net SES DPP Program, the architecture layers are differentiated as follows:
