If you are looking forward to the opening of the next call by the SK-NIC Fund, the following lines will make you happy! We are preparing call for small projects, in which financial support within range of 2,500 to 10,000 EUR for one project will be provided.
The call will be open from June 1, 2021 to July 15, 2021 and we have a total of 100,000 EUR ready for your innovative ideas!
The call will cover these three topics:
- projects that effectively use information and communication technologies for education or projects educating about these technologies (so-called e-learning),
- projects supporting the digital economy of small and medium-sized enterprises (so-called go online business),
- projects aimed at combating fake news and conspiracies on the Internet.
In the upcoming call, we plan to open another set of topics, in which we expect interesting projects again. Especially nowadays, fake news and conspiracies on the Internet can confuse many people and incite anger and unnecessary disagreements, even among friends. Therefore it is important to support projects that suppress such fake news, respectively detect, unmask or explain them.
As we await a large number of applicants involved again, we meet their needs with provision of one and a half month period for their applications. We are already looking forward to all the projects applying for our support from the SK-NIC Fund! We are always surprised by the creativity and quantity of ideas within each call.
The evaluation process will take place in the summer months and the announcement of the winning projects should take place in early autumn.
The SK-NIC Fund started its activities in the current form in 2019. Since then, we have helped to implement 38 projects and we have contributed almost 500,000 EUR to these projects.
