Call for proposals ICT for Green Cars 2010 FP7-2010-ICT-GC Closed!

Objectives

The Recovery Plan proposed by the Commission on 26 November 2008 includes public- private partnerships for research and development in three areas. The initiatives will be implemented through a series of coordinated calls between the relevant FP7 themes, reflecting research roadmaps and priorities established by the relevant industrial partners.

One of these areas, as identified by ICT Work Programme for 2009, will be Green Cars initiatives, for which ICT is essential for developing fully Electrical Vehicles, e.g. for battery management and power supply, for control mechanisms and for the interconnections with the transport and power infrastructures.

In adition to our useful documents section, further information about Call FP7-2010-ICT-GC, as well as relevant documents can be found at the FP7 Cordis website.

Actions

  • Highly energy-efficient ICT components and solutions for Fully Electric Vehicles (FEVs), including adaptive and distributed control solutions, as well as new architectures, infrastructure interfaces (with both the road and the power grid) and overall system optimization. Projects should address optimization at vehicle and system levels, derive requirements and define standards - where appropriate - for subsystems, components, communications and closed-loop control, making components and subsystems work together in synergy.
  • European Fully Electric Vehicle Coordination Action: Coordination of FEVs research activities to identify and continuously review the needs in terms of research, components, systems integration and standardisation. This includes editing and regularly updating a European FEV roadmap, the organisation of expert hearings and networking events, and coordination with FEV-related activities at the national and global levels.
