Welcome to the Open Research Program at AstaZero!

Timeline for next call:

Call opens in March 2019.
Submission deadline will be April 30th, 2019.
Decision letters will be sent by mid of June 2019.
Projects can start in the second half of 2019 (please be aware of the summer break and get in contact with AstaZero to agree on possible timeslots for testing before submitting your proposal).


This program is funding curiosity projects at AstaZero by providing FREE access to the world’s first full-scale test environment for future road safety. The next call is meant for projects that will be conducted during the second halv of 2019. We are searching for projects that help to stimulate and facilitate open, independent and world-leading research. The program aims to generate openly available results and data and an inspiring network between researchers. Researchers from universities or research institutions as well as small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) can  apply for test track time, workshop use, support (e.g. testing engineers, or drivers), and use of equipment. You need to cover all other project costs. No industry partner is needed!
