The specific challenge of this topic is to develop innovative EGNSS based applications. These should lead to low emission (CO2 and air pollutants), safer, more secure, lower cost and higher performance mobility, and transport solutions that respond to the increased mobility needs of people and goods whilst improving transport service continuity.Scope:
Proposals may be submitted in any of the transport areas or propose a multi-mode approach:
Proposals should be built on the exploitation of the distinguishing features of EGNOS and Galileo, e.g.:
Actions should deliver new innovative applications, with commercial
impact and a clear market uptake perspective. EGNSS should be part and parcel of the envisaged solution(s). However, where a combination of EGNSS with other technologies, such as Earth observation satellite communication or other sensors is required to make the application(s) work, this can be included in the scope.
In projects to be funded under this topic participation of industry, in particular SMEs, is encouraged.
Proposals addressing PRS (Public Regulated Service) related applications are not in the scope
of this action.
The Commission considers that proposals requesting a contribution from the EU of between EUR 1 and 3 million would allow this specific challenge to be addressed appropriately. Nonetheless, this does not preclude submission and selection of proposals requesting other amounts.
This topic contributes to the Horizon 2020 focus area "Building a low-carbon, climate resilient future".Expected Impact:
