- Open Calls
The CREW project organized two open calls to extend the use of the federated testbed to external researchers or research groups. Experiments of the first open call are being finished, while the experiments of the second open call are now starting up.
Furthermore, a third open call is planned.
Please note that it is still possible to use the CREW facilities, outside of the open call programs. Use of the CREW facilities outside of the open calls is not funded, and availability of infrastructure and support is not guaranteed. Please contact us for more information.
Open call 1 - 2011
A first call was organized in September 2011. 20 % of the project resources (with a maximum of 200 k€ per experiment) are reserved for running experiments by external researchers or research groups to validate innovative usage scenarios for cognitive radio & cognitive networking.
External experimenters drive additional functionality of the federated testbed through feedback and recommendations on their experimental results and use of the CREW test facilities.
The first open call closed on October 19, at 17:00 Brussels time. The results of the first open call are available here; Those interested may still find the (old) information on the first open call archived here.
Open call 2 - 2012
Open call 3 - 2013
CREW organizes a 3rd Open Call through a different, lighter mechanism. This allows us to accept more small experiments, which will not be funded but for which you can count on elaborated support by the CREW consortium.
