The 1st Open Call has received 17 high quality proposals, 5 of them addressing the BM&BE topic and 12 the Middleware topic. The degree of interest is very high if we take into account that the topics proposed are rather focused in scope. The proposers are a quite heterogeneous group of people from varied countries and they are well known, solid companies and institutions. It is a real pity that the evaluators will have to make a choice because most of the possibilities look terrific!

We are pleased with the success of the call and look forward to the selection of the new partners. We also count on a great team of independent evaluators that are about to start their work.
