NEED HELP WITH THIS CALL?

Who?

Any legal entity, regardless of its place of establishment, including legal entities from non-associated third countries or international organisations (including international European research organisations4) is eligible to participate (whether it is eligible for funding or not), provided that the conditions laid down in the Horizon Europe Regulation have been met, along with any other conditions laid down in the specific call topic (described in General conditions).

What?

SCOPE

Following the results of the Horizon Europe 2020/21 Work Programme, the second Horizon Europe 2023/24 Work Programme will support innovation activities to move closer to AI-based market and ultimately widely available solutions that can play an important role in ensuring pluralistic access to meaningful information, quality content and trustworthy online interaction. This topic is fully in line with both the EDAP European Democracy Action Plan and MAAP – Media and Audiovisual Action Plan, for reinforcing the European media ecosystem and maintaining resilient democratic systems, in times of crises and of need for adaptation and change.

Given the emergence of the next generation of social media as part of digital universe(s) or fediverse(s), which are more immersive and based on virtual realities and gaming contexts, the detection of different forms of content manipulation (e.g. deep-fakes, tampered content and scammed environments) becomes even more challenging. Solutions provided would include the correlation/comparison of various sources of information, multi-modal language interpretation, rapid visual pattern detection in moving images and simulated environments, capabilities as recommendation engine/personal companion, and interfacing with augmented, virtual reality and gaming environments. Solutions should be gender-sensitive and not perpetuate harmful stereotypes. The innovation actions will bring together technological providers, media professionals and end users for ensuring market readiness of the results.

Proposals should clearly identify the expected outcome it will focus on as described above. All proposals are expected to embed mechanisms to assess and demonstrate progress (with qualitative and quantitative KPIs, demonstrators, benchmarking and progress monitoring), and share communicable results with the European R&D community, through the AI-on-demand platform. Activities are expected to achieve TRL6 7 by the end of the project.

All proposals are expected to allocate tasks to cohesion activities with the other subtopic, the PPP on AI, Data and Robotics and funded actions related to this partnership, and to extend and apply the results from the previous research and innovation topic on AI against Disinformation.

Specific Topic Conditions:

Activities are expected to start at TRL 4-5 and achieve TRL 6-7 by the end of the project see General Annex B.

Eligibility

Expected impact

 Proposals for topics under this Destination should set out a credible pathway to contributing to a human-centred and ethical development of digital and industrial technologies, and more specifically to one or several of the following impacts:

  • Increased inclusiveness, by supporting a human-centred approach to technology development that is aligned with European social and ethical values (including gender and intersectional aspects), as well as sustainability;
  • Sustainable, high-quality jobs by targeting skills mismatches, the need to empower workers, including those at risk of social exclusion, and ethical considerations relating to technological progress [[2019 CIGI-Ipsos Global Survey on Internet Security and Trust]].

Expected Outcomes:

Proposal results are expected to contribute to one of the following expected outcomes:

  • Innovative AI solutions for trusted information production for media professionals.
  • Innovative AI solutions for supporting trustworthy online activity of citizens.
