The European GNSS Agency (GSA) is launching the 2019 edition of its Galileo User Satisfaction Survey and its EGNOS User Satisfaction Survey. These surveys aim to gain a better understanding of the needs and requirements of Galileo and EGNOS end users and to ensure that these needs are taken into consideration in future evolutions of the programmes.
The Commission invites anyone with an interest in future research and innovation partnerships to participate in the survey, which will close on 6 November 2019.
The consultation focuses on Horizon Europe’s second pillar: ‘Global Challenges and European Industrial Competitiveness’, and its six thematic clusters:
- Cluster 1, Health
- Cluster 2, Culture, Creativity and Inclusive Society
- Cluster 3, Civil security for Society
- Cluster 4, Digital, Industry and Space
- Cluster 5, Climate, Energy and Mobility
- Cluster 6, Food, Bioeconomy, Natural Resources, Agriculture and Environment
Deadline: 8 September 2019.
The draft implementing regulation is open for feedback for 4 weeks, until 9 August 2019 (midnight Brussels time).
The Commission is launching a call for ideas to gather recommendations in satellite navigation upstream research and development (R&D) activities, to help identify European capacities and weaknesses in this field, and to design a multi-annual R&D roadmap accordingly. Participants are required to fill in a questionnaire and send it to GROW-HE-EGNSS@ec.europa.eu by 7 August 2019, 18.00 CEST.
The open public consultation for the evaluation of the TEN-T guidelines has been launched and will be open until 17 July 2019.
TEN-T policy remains key in promoting the free circulation of goods, services and citizens throughout the EU. It is instrumental in boosting economic, social and territorial cohesion between all Member States and their regions, as well as beyond the EU.
The EESC believes that sustainable European systems of transport, energy and services of general interest are vital for addressing the global challenges in a modern, digitised and smart environment. The active participation and engagement of European Civil Society and citizens are crucial when assessing the challenges, consequences and impacts of digital transformation.
