This CELTIC-NEXT Autumn Call 2023* is now open since the 21st of July 2023, and the deadline for proposal submissions will be on the 10th of  November 2023.

CELTIC-NEXT Calls are the perfect opportunity to enable projects in the field of next-generation communications for the digital society that contribute to a sustainable world.
By applying and participating in any CELTIC-NEXT Calls, your organization can access national public funding for your R&D project as well as a large community sharing your interests.

For this Call, CELTIC is really proud to organise several events to help you to join the call with innovative proposals.

  • On the 7th of September 2023, an Online Launch Event will be organised to present the cluster and its new call, the funding opportunities of the Public Authorities supporting the call and the topics of interest addressed. The first steps to prepare your proposal will be detailed, such as creating a Proposal Portal account and using the Brokerage Tool to find partners, share ideas or find some.


First of all, you will need an account on the Celtic Proposal Submission Portal to apply.

In order to access the Celtic Proposal Submission Portal for the first time you need to create an account or log in with your credentials if you have already participated in one of the previous CELTIC-NEXT Calls.

Once your account is created, you can fill in the application form and upload your Project Proposal Template before the deadline. There you will be able to write a CELTIC-NEXT submission in your field of interest and expertise for the open call(s).

Please note that you will also need to contact each partner National Public Authority by country to receive national funding information and that process and conditions can vary with dates and take time.

You shall also fill in, sign and return, to the office, the Confirmation Letter/Declaration of Acceptance (CLD) for each consortium partner within two weeks after your proposal submission.

After receiving a positive Label Notification, a Project Cooperation Agreement (PCA) should be elaborated and signed between the consortium partners. For that purpose, we provide you with an example here.

During the submission process, you will be guided step by step as all documents are provided in the tool and on our Guides, Contracts & Templates page.
