4 INFSO/F3 4 Trans-EU application-service focus Content ICT Industry EU Markets Physical infrastructure TEN-TELECOM ACTION: Telecommunications networks based applications and generic services

5 INFSO/F3 5 An independent action which: bridges the gap between research results and emerging technologies, and the market, in areas of general interest supports market validation for new services based on Trans-European telecommunications networks exploits the global (trans-European) dimension of these applications and services Distinctive Features -Summary-

6 INFSO/F3 6 FORMS OF COMMUNITY FUNDING (up to 10% of total investment cost) - Direct grants - Interest rebates - Contributions to guaranty fees - Risk capital participation - Direct grants - Interest rebates - Contributions to guaranty fees - Risk capital participation PROJECTPHASES FUNDEDPROJECTPHASES FUNDED (technical studies, design and development, technical validation) Business plan Market validation Evaluation of Business plan Initial Market deployment Full Market deployment Phase 1 Phase 2 Phase 3 Phase 4 PREDEPLOYMENTPHASESPREDEPLOYMENTPHASES DEPLOYMENTPHASESDEPLOYMENTPHASES Project Phases and Funding Research and development - Co-funding of Business plan and Market validation (up to 50 %) - Co-funding of Business plan and Market validation (up to 50 %)

7 INFSO/F3 7 Project characteristics Technical maturity Relevance for market deployment Partners commitment Open market standards Trans-European dimension

8 INFSO/F3 8 Types of projects Market Validation –18 month maximum –main deliverable: business plan, on-site validation in a real environment, confirmation of business plan and market approach Initial deployment –24 month maximum –main deliverable: investment done, application up and running, business plan implemented

9 INFSO/F3 9 Projects of common interest Generic Telecommunications services Applications in: - distance education and training - cultural heritage - services for SMEs - transport and mobility - healthcare - city and regional information networks - environment and the emergency management Yearly calls for proposals on these projects

10 INFSO/F3 10 Value-added environmental information services (such as air, water, soil, bio-diversity) On one part, there is a growing demand from the environmental managers in both public administrations and private enterprises, to enable them to comply with existing and emerging national and European policies and directives. One the other hand, trans-European value-added services based on harmonized environmental public data will create new markets with more user-oriented products and services (e.g. weather information, pollution, ultraviolet and pollen levels). Environment & Emergency Management (1)

11 INFSO/F Emergency management and public safety systems (such as, but not limited to flood management for urban areas, rivers and estuaries, forest fires and industrial risk management) Reliable communication systems and networks (mobile, satellite, radio, etc.) and accurate positioning of resources form the essential backbone for real-time decision aid in crisis situations. They are also important to forecast natural disasters and estimate the damage they cause. Remote sensing applications utilizing space borne and terrestrial data will play a more prominent role in environmental emergency management and monitoring. Environment & Emergency Management (2)

12 INFSO/F3 12 Conditions for Community aid Community Aid : only if financial obstacles < minimum necessary for launch of project total amount < 10% of total investment costs Projects should be of common interest

13 INFSO/F3 13 Trans-national coverage A single organisation is eligible Proposals must have a trans-national nature Shall be implementable in several Member States Implementation in a single Member State allowed if it contributes to a broader trans- European interest

14 INFSO/F3 14 Projects examples (1) Innovative services in the field of waste management, material and products recycling: access to integrated source of information public-private partnerships to provide up-to-date information of public interest; development of new business models for the sale for information services. ENINFO ENINFO - Environmental Venture Incentive Information ERNET ERNET - European materials and products Recycling Network
