This call for proposals aims at increasing the number of partners of the CloudFlow projects and at funding and new Application Experiments on Cloud computing within the CloudFlow project

Priorities and funded actions:

–  To run use cases on Cloud computing involving manufacturing industries in the Framework of the CloudFlow project
– To enable end users to access computational Cloud engineering services that are new to them
– To allow simulations for more complex models, developing better products, improving predictability of product behaviour and assessing compliance with requirements (“design for X” and simulation/optimization)
– To enable/support complex computational engineering services and workflows in the Cloud enhancing the interoperability of data and tools.
– To examine Cloud-based business models and their impact

– Application Experiments shall be rooted in computational technology for manufacturing and engineering industries, preferably SMEs, giving them affordable access to Cloud technology
– Application Experiments are expected to extend the CloudFlow infrastructure and to address workflows along the value chain in and across companies.
– Priority will be given to innovative product development and products, such as mechatronic systems and cyber-physical systems, including, e.g., multi-domain simulation (mechanics, electronics, software, fluid dynamics, acoustics, etc.).
