Creating and sharing knowledge for telecommunications

Project: eMobility

Acronym: eMobility
Main Objective: Telecommunications is experiencing major change. Sector actors are searching for new
strategies as globalisation, mergers, convergence and new and disruptive technologies
happen. The eMobility Technology Platform was formed to address this challenge and has
almost 500 members. It has a track record of success in facilitating consensus building.
The strategic objective of the eMobility CA project is to facilitate the emergence of a common
understanding, between the European sector actors, leading to agreed road-maps and
contributing to the global competitiveness of the European telecommunications sector on the
following key challenges: the need to integrate the road-maps of the mobile and wireless
sector with those of the health, transport and the environment sectors, the need to extend the
eMobility Strategic Research Agenda to cover new technologies, the need to support the
definition of a European perspective on the Future Internet, positioning these views in the
international context, and the need to build the opportunities to use Structural Funds to
develop leading edge markets in Europe, promoting the take-up of the RandD output of
collaborative projects. The approach is based on the voluntary contributions of FP 7,
national, and COST Programmes projects and of eMobility members, to the production of a
series of recommendations, reports, road-maps and events by the eMobility CA. The
eMobility Steering Board has endorsed the proposal. Support has been offered by a range of
proposed and existing projects. The eMobility CA project results will highlight the collective
recommendations of a representative body of European expertise, on priorities for future
multi-sector, mobile, wireless and Future Internet R&D leading to increased momentum,
critical mass and effective use of scarce human and time resources in RandD activities. 123
person months of funded effort will require a Community contribution of 1.5 M Euro with 75%
