Call for projects: Technological maturation and demonstration of trust systems integrating artificial intelligence bricks

🗓️ Deadline: 07/09/2023

🎯 Target audience: SMEs, ETIs and large groups (collaborative project with at least one SME)

This call for projects, opened by BPIFRANCE, aims to support hardware, software and systems innovations supporting the maturation and demonstration of critical functional systems integrating one or more trusted artificial intelligences.

Projects should be geared towards demonstrating a clearly identified functional need that will ultimately strengthen the position of players in an existing market, or open up a new market (notably medical devices, transport and new mobility, industry 4.0, energy and energy networks, critical infrastructures, etc.). The expected deliverable is an industrial or commercial demonstrator whose operation under laboratory and real-life conditions has been validated. In particular, the demonstrator must have undergone :

  • A risk analysis and engineering that define not only the specifications to which the system must conform, but also its design, validation and verification process, and the associated risk mitigation strategies
  • Identification and integration of the hardware and software technologies required to meet one or more functional use cases, the relevance of which in terms of markets and technical demonstrations must be justified
  • Integration of at least one AI whose main trust characteristics for the intended use case (safety, security, robustness, explainability, ethics, etc.) have been demonstrated.

Indicative technological maturity level (TRL) at start of project: between 4 and 6, indicative TRL at end of project: between 6 and 8


Expected projects must fall within the following budget range: between €5M and €20M. Funded projects will receive between 25% and 70% of the project budget, depending on the type of company (for small companies: between 45% and 70%, medium-sized companies: between 35% and 60%, large groups: between 25% and 50%, for public laboratories 100% of additional costs or 50% of full costs).
