- Excellent Science/FET and eInfrastructures: Advanced research to uncover radically new technological possibilities and ICT driven research and innovation (R&I).
- Leadership in Enabling & Industrial Technologies (LEIT): R&I on generic ICT technologies either driven by industrial roadmaps or through a bottom-up approach.
- Societal challenges: Multi-disciplinary application-driven R&I leveraging ICT to tackle societal challenges.
