Call for development of demonstrators using the information from Copernicus, the European Earth observation programme, and signals from Galileo and EGNOS, the European GNSS 105/G/ENT/CIP/13/C/N03C03 Closed!


The overall purpose of this call is to support a number of concrete and operational activities with special emphasis on promoting the further use of data and information from Earth monitoring and satellite navigation for which Europe is investing massively through the Copernicus, EGNOS and Galileo programmes.


  • Demonstrate how innovative, added-value services based on Copernicus and the European GNSS could address in an effective manner societal challenges. In this respect, the intention is to support the achievement of targets defined by the Europe 20207 strategy, supporting smart, inclusive and sustainable growth, while ensuring complementarity with the priorities foreseen under the future Horizon 2020 programme and to test the envisaged approach.
  • Demonstrate how innovative, added-value services based on Copernicus and the European GNSS could 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. Take-up of Copernicus services should consider, at least, the already functioning projects stemming out of the 7th Framework Programme.
