Subject Re: Approaching the European Commission for some help?

Hi Chris,

I like the idea and in fact, as stated earlier on the list, there is a project funded by the
german government (SFSC) together with Matthias Institute where we plan to do some PLC4X development
and integration.
The EU founded projects are usually larger but also harder to acquire, so it will be a LOT
of paperwork, but could be worth it if we make a nice proposal and outline a really feasible
solution (not only covering plc4x but also some "end-user-usable" thing, or so).
And, we should gather several "assoziated" partners which explain their interest in what we
want to do.

And of course good university support. So perhaps the ISW (Matthias) and also the WZL Aachen
(Björn has good contacts) and the IFQ Magdeburg (we have good contacts) could be good universitary
partners for such a project.

So pragmatic minds or pragmatic industries would be in, I guess.

    Hi all,
    while attending the EU FOSSA2 Hackathon in Brussles last weekend I had the chance to talk
with some guys from the European Comission and they really liked how we are enabling small
and mid-sized companies to participate in the Industry 4.0 sector.
    They also promised to help us where they can.
    While this is usually just something people say to be nice … some further thinking lead
me to the idea that we might approach them and ask for some options for EU funded research.
    I guess we all work for some company (or are self employed) … we could try to apply
for some funds in as a collective.
    You think that’s a good idea?
