L4MS Open Call results- Total of 28 proposals submitted 

The second L4MS Open Call was closed on December 6th, with a total of 28 proposals addressing 14 logistical challenges from Europe. Compared to the previous Open Call, the total amount of proposals increased by +24% this year. 
"This time we focused our communication efforts on explaining our IoT platform OPIL and the benefits it can offer for small and medium-sized manufacturers. Based on the quality of the proposals, the applicants have managed to use our IoT platform creatively", says Project Manager Ola Skalska from FundingBox.
What's next?
During the following months, external experts will perform an independent evaluation of proposals according to the valuation criteria and rank them according to their average score. 
L4MS Open Call process is divided into three main stages
A total of 10 consortiums are selected to enter the first Open Call phase next spring. During this phase, teams will receive funding to further develop their proposal together with mentors. In May, teams will pitch their idea at Jury Day and only six teams will be selected to enter the 6-8 month development phase with funding support up to 250,000€. 
We want to thank all applicants for the interest of taking part of the L4MS Open Call and for the efforts preparing proposals!
