  • Innovative manufacturing technologies and processes for flexible wing with morphing capabilities,
  • Innovative joining technologies and damage diagnostics for composites and dissimilar materials in primary and secondary aircraft structures

Deadline: 21 April 2020


DRONES & MOBILITY: Cities as climate-resilient, connected multimodal nodes for smart and clean mobility: new approaches towards demonstrating and testing innovative solutions

Coordination and Support Action: prepare for the deployment of Urban Air Mobility in urban and peri-urban areas

The integration of vertical urban mobility solutions (drones, and other forms of low-aerial mobility, as well as services) into existing surface multimodal transport (both freight and passengerץ

To provide a knowledge base and to deliver a set of policy recommendations for measures to integrate the vertical and horizontal dimensions in urban and peri-urban mobility systems

Deadline: 21 April 2020


AIR MOBILITY: Towards sustainable urban air mobility

  • Urban air mobility (UAM) for urban planning and mobility systems.
  • Safety and security: particularly when operating over populated areas.
  • Sustainability with regard to the overall environmental footprint (e.g. energy demand; local emissions and global greenhouse gas emissions).
  • Public acceptance, socio-economic modelling and relevant regulatory and organisational aspects of urban air mobility systems
  • Services: new door-to-door or emergency services concepts; new approaches for regulatory due processes associated to the sign-off of urban air services.
  • Operations: new concepts of operations allowing UAM traffic to be interwoven with the multi-modal urban transportation or emergency systems.
  • Infrastructure adaptation, energy and ICT networks.

Deadline: 21 April 2020


ROBOTICS: Enhancing coordination between Member States’ actions in the area of infrastructure research with a particular focus on biodiversity and ameliorating environmental impacts and full automated infrastructure upgrade and maintenance

An area where research and coordination is needed is the use of robotised equipment, drones or other (semi)-automated remote-piloted solutions, offering significant potential to reduce workers exposure to live traffic and construction machines

  • Application of robotics and remote piloted systems to infrastructure upgrade or maintenance works
  • Development of robotized equipment to perform routine, periodic or emergency maintenance works

Deadline: 09 Jan 2020 (First Stage)

08 Sep 2020 (Second Stage)
