Description of Topic GALILEO.2008.1.7.1, LBS Applications with Social/Public Dimension

Funded under: FP7-TRANSPORT

Abstract

The objectives for the 2nd call, of the activity "exploiting the full potential", part of the sub-theme:
Support to the European Global Navigation Satellite System (Galileo), are:
[1] Stimulate adoption of EGNOS and EDAS;
[2] Prepare markets for Galileo introduction;
[3] Stimulate EU GNSS industry competitiveness.
The 1st call for this activity focused on several application areas with a high potential. In this 2nd call the scope is wider and covers a more diverse range of applications. The approach taken is broadly similar. However, the requirements have been updated.
This specific topic focuses on LBS applications with a social/public dimension. LBS is expected to be the largest user segment by far. Innovation in this sector is already very intense; hence this topic focuses on applications with a social/public dimension that have fewer funding opportunities in the private sector.
We expect to fund 3-4 projects of similar size as comparable projects in the 1st call. Note that the funding scheme, Collaborative Project, applies.
