Call for proposals 'European Mobile and Mobility Industries Alliance - 2013'

The European Commission has published a call for proposals entitled 'European Mobile and Mobility Industries Alliance - 2013'. This new call comes under the Entrepreneurship and Innovation Programme (EIP).

The concept of large-scale demonstrators is a new approach for stimulating innovation. It provides regional or local authorities with a tool to reinforce the links between all public and private actors, notably industry, knowledge-based service providers, research institutions, regulators and users/citizens. The aim is to share knowledge, contribute practical experience, and articulate their needs and competences.

The main objective of the call for proposals is to develop large-scale demonstrators of Copernicus and the European GNSS-based services. Each large-scale demonstrator will have to demonstrate how innovative, added-value services based on Copernicus and the European GNSS could address societal challenges in an effective manner, as well as support the emergence of new industries in a region or metropolitan area. The potential for export of the developed services to other European regions must also be demonstrated.

The large-scale demonstrators are expected encourage activities with a strong and visible impact. They should bring together a large number of regional innovation actors to create a favourable eco-system for innovative mobile services based on Copernicus and GNSS.
