Horizon 2020 - Call for Applications

With a budget of €38 million, the first Horizon 2020 Call for Applications in Satellite Navigation has opened.

The first call for proposals - managed by the European GNSS Agency (GSA) - has new, simplified rules to provide opportunities for the development of applications for use with EGNOS and Galileo Early Services.

All proposals are expected to address concrete solutions and applications in the GNSS sectors of:
- road
- aviation
- location-based services (LBS)
- maritime
- rail
- agriculture
- surveying
- mapping
with the aim of creating innovative applications, products, feasibility studies and market tests that can have a substantial impact on European innovation, knowledge and economy.

There are a number of features in Horizon 2020 that should make it easier to apply for funding - including a common, web-based Participant Portal that allows one to submit the entire proposal electronically.

The deadline for submitting proposals is 3 April 2014. More information on the rules of applying, funding rates, evaluation criteria and schedule can be found at the link below . .
