Implementation Challenge

Implementation Challenge was created to select external tools especially in areas of risk assessment not completely covered by the OpenRiskNet consortium will be selected for prioritized integration partial financially and strongly technically supported by researchers of OpenRiskNet partners. The scientific advisory board will work together with the coordinator and the WP leaders to prioritize the proposed services and select the winning groups. Everyone can apply for this challenge (with the exception of members of the OpenRiskNet consortium) and if the corresponding tool is selected, the winner is asked to become an associated partner.

Similar to the internal services, the funds and the technical support will cover the work associated with making the service OpenRiskNet compliant. This includes the adoption of the OpenRiskNet API concept including the interoperability layer, generation of the data schemata for in- and output as well as the containerization for deployment.

6.000 - 12.000 € (in-kind work contributions) will be provided depending on the complexity of the service to be integrated and the amount of adaptations needed.
