The contributions, in the form of ideas, must include: objectives, approach, expected outcomes, timetable and milestones. They must describe the main problems faced, the new approaches to their resolution, the criteria for measuring their success. An estimate of costs is also needed to carry out the project. The contributions collected will be evaluated by a Commission composed of members of the Scientific Technical Committee and staff of the Consortium. The best will be the basis for a call for proposals for funding to carry out a real research project.

Proposals may be submitted in one of the following two research strands: culture and digital skills, health. Demand for digital skills is increasing and the gap with supply can be bridged through strong public-private synergy and substantial innovation in digital services. It will be important to have tools to understand what professional figures will be necessary for companies in a constantly evolving market.

Culture is a driving force for economic and productive growth. It can also make a significant contribution to employment in Piedmont. The cultural and tourist vocation of our territory is undoubted, so it is important to strategically structure the relationship between ICT and cultural production.

On the digitalization of the healthcare system in Piedmont, there is plenty of room for working: the comparison with the situation in many European countries still shows fragmented and uneven results, and the applications of telediagnosis, remote assistance and telemedicine are less developed than those of an administrative-managerial nature. For citizens, on the other hand, the development of medical care services depends on better exploitation of our information assets.

All the instructions for the compilation can be found in the Regulations.
