UNICORN project is looking for SMEs and start-ups to test and validate the UNICORN platform by developing their own software or use-cases. The selected participants will receive 10.000€ funding each (find here a template for the contract)

UNICORN is a Horizon 2020 research and innovation project which aims to facilitate the design and deployment of cloud applications and services and improve developers’ productivity by reducing cloud application design time via code annotations and blueprints for security.

In this context UNICORN project has launched a Validation contest targeting SMEs, where twelve participants will be selected to test and validate UNICORN’s platform. The contest targets SMEs that develop software applications over cloud computing infrastructure or face issues in security, privacy, and elasticity and want simpler processes in service orchestration and micro-services application management when using different cloud infrastructure providers.

During the development phase, participants will have access to the UNICORN platform and to all the resources needed for a successful validation including Cloud hosting services, and UNICORN training and examples, among others.

Meanwhile they will have the opportunity to attend related events and get trained by UNICORN experts where they will also get the chance to demonstrate their progress and results and get introduced to the Start-up Europe entrepreneurial ecosystem.

Find here some slides presenting the platform. If you want to know more about the platform, read the UNICORN documentation.

The call of participation will be officially closed by the end of February 2019!
