On the 13th of April the DG Enterprise and Industry published a call for proposals which extends the European Mobile and Mobility Alliance (EMMIA) in a second phase focused on concrete and operational activities using information from GMES, the European Earth monitoring programme, and signal from Galileo and EGNOS, the European GNSS.
Strand 1, on innovation support, calls for the development and testing of new voucher schemes aimed at promoting the further use of GMES and GNSS based services in mobile services industries (supporting either providers or users). Such voucher schemes should support innovation activities of SMEs, offering them the possibility to have flexible and non-bureaucratic innovation support “on demand”; moreover, they should help raise the demand for GMES and GNSS based services and stimulate entrepreneurship in this new technological field.
The deadline for submission of full proposals is the 6th of July 2012.
Strand 2 calls for demonstrators which should show how GMES and GNSS based services can be implemented on a large scale. Regions or metropolitan areas are invited to promote innovation support activities, the objective of which is twofold: on the one hand, they should demonstrate how innovative mobile services based on GMES and GNSS could address in an effective manner societal challenges; on the other hand, they should create supportive technical infrastructures and business conditions that facilitate the take-up of innovative services based on GMES and GNSS.
The deadline for submission of the concept note is the 27th of June 2012.
