Call for proposals for LEIT - Applications in Satellite Navigation-Galileo H2020-Galileo-2014-1 Closed!

Objectives

Space research is supported in Horizon 2020 under the priority "Industrial Leadership", in line with the main objective and challenge to foster a cost-effective competitive and innovative space industry (including SMEs) and research community to develop and exploit space infrastructure to meet future Union policy and societal needs. Building on the successes of the Seventh Framework Programme, Horizon 2020 will enable the European space research community to develop innovative space technologies and operational concepts "from idea to demonstration in space", and to use space data for scientific, public, or commercial purposes.

Actions

Actions foreseen within this call for proposals include the following topics:

  • GALILEO-1-2014: EGNSS applications. European society and industry are facing new challenges, requiring more innovation, productivity and competitiveness, whilst using fewer resources and reducing environmental impact. GNSS offers various possibilities for the development of new space enabled applications, which will enhance Europe's capacity to address major societal challenges in focus areas such as health, citizen safety, mobility, smart cities, sustainable resources monitoring and management, regional growth, low-carbon energy infrastructure planning and protection, disaster management and climate action including natural catastrophes.
  • GALILEO-3-2014: Releasing the potential of EGNSS applications through international cooperation. Although Galileo is a European programme, it has a strong international dimension. International cooperation in the field of Galileo-enabled applications is therefore an essential element facilitating its breakthrough to new and emerging markets and strengthening Europe's position as a major space player.
  • GALILEO-4-2014: EGNSS awareness raising, capacity building and/or promotion activities, inside or outside of the European Union. Awareness raising and capacity building in the field of EGNSS are essential elements in facilitating the breakthrough of EGNOS and Galileo inside and outside Europe and in increasing the number of opportunities for future collaboration between European and non-European GNSS entities. Promotion activities should take a more active role in generating new ideas ready to spin-off and/or to go into market introduction, in providing crucial seed financing and in increasing the visibility of the EGNSS.
  • GALILEO-2-2014: Small and Medium Enterprise (SME) based EGNSS applications. European society and industry are facing new societal challenges, requiring more innovation, productivity and competitiveness, whilst using fewer resources and reducing environmental impact. GNSS offers various possibilities for the development of new space enabled applications, which will enhance Europe's capacity to address major societal challenges in focus areas such as health, citizen safety, mobility, smart cities, sustainable resources management, regional growth, low-carbon energy infrastructure planning and protection, disaster management and climate action including natural catastrophes.
