16.10.2017

IMPACT Connected Car, a 5.5 M EUR project financed through the H2020 INNOSUP-1-2016 call "Cluster facilitated projects for new value chains", aims at creating value link-chains for innovation in the Connected Car Open Space, with vehicle, infrastructure and device and TelCo interactions and consumer and business services through a 6 months acceleration and smartization programme.

Through 2 open calls, IMPACT Connected Car will create a portfolio of 64 disruptors of the Connected Car Industry situated within TRL 7 “System prototype demonstration in operational environment” and TRL 9 “Actual system proven in operational environment”, which will act as beachheads in the creation of new value chains in the following challenges/verticals: Safety and security; Driver assistance; Well-being; Mobility management; Vehicle management; Infotainment. On 9 October the project published its first call for provision of financial support to third parties through which 13 SMEs will receive up to 60,000€, through several lump-sums across each stage, as described below:

  • 25 beneficiaries will pass to Stage 1 (participation in a disruptive boot camp) and receive 3.000 €
  • 15 out of previous 25 will pass to Stage 2 (ignition phase) and receive 7000 €
  • 13 out of previous 15 will pass to Stage 3 (product development phase) and receive 50.000 €

In addition, the SMEs will benefit from a mixture between innovative acceleration services and hybridisation mechanisms to contribute to foster the cross-sectoral fertilisation and the value chain innovation.

The deadline for submitting applications is 10 January 2018.
