Third Open Call for Experiments of the ORCA project

We are pleased to announce the Third Open Call for Experiments of the ORCA project! We would be really grateful if you could share this information with your network, among researchers, SMEs and universities.

The ORCA project ( is a Research and Innovation Action (RIA) under the European Horizon 2020 Programme addressing the work programme topic 'Future Connectivity Systems'. The project started in January 2017 and will run until end of June 2020.

ORCA offers experimentation facilities to promote wireless innovation especially focusing on SDR. The ultimate goal of the ORCA project is to enable wireless experimenters to unlock the potential of reconfigurable radio technology. More information on the ORCA project can be found on the project website and in the ORCA project overview video through this link.

This 3rd OC EXP call solicits for Experiments for rapid validation of innovative software defined radio (SDR) solutions using the facilities, SDR hardware platforms and software toolsets supported by the ORCA Consortium.
