It is dedicated to provide opportunities for the development of applications for use with EGNOS and Galileo Early Services. The overall budget for the period 2014-2020 is EUR 70 billion. The programme’s objective is to facilitate the creation of innovative applications, products, feasibility studies and market tests that can have a substantial impact on the European innovation know-how and economy.
Proposals are expected to address concrete solutions and applications in the GNSS sectors of road, aviation, LBS, maritime, rail, agriculture or mapping.
Horizon 2020 is the European Union’s next programme for research and innovation, with a focus on securing Europe’s global competitiveness.
