Through this call for proposals, we seek to make it easier for Nordic mobility companies and other public and private stakeholders to share data in order to optimize operations and support a more climate-efficient and profitable mobility and logistics sector.
We seek Nordic smart connectivity projects that bolster added value and spark innovation by combining and building on Nordic strongholds, existing or new solutions. The projects should have the potential to create high impact and Nordic Added Value.
The applications should cover the two topics that reflect the main focus areas of the Smart Connectivity program:
- Seamless, integrated and people-centric mobility
- Sustainable, secure, energy-efficient and decarbonized logistics/freight transport
As an alternative or in combination with the above, applicants may also apply for funding for the following:
- Establishment of an innovation ecosystem based on a use case. The ecosystem should support scaling of smart connectivity solutions in the Nordic region
A call-webinar will take place in the beginning of February to give potential applicants the opportunity to ask questions and get a better understanding of the call.
This call for proposals is funded under Nordics Innovation’s Smart Connectivity program which is one of eight initiatives launched by the five Nordic ministers of trade and industry. The aim of the Smart Connectivity program is to facilitate innovation within the logistics sector through, among other, establishing a Nordic data space for data sharing across the Nordic logistics sector.
The objective is to make it easier for Nordic logistic companies to share data with each other and with their subcontractor to optimize operations and contribute to a more climate-efficient and profitable logistics sector.
The call for proposals is, among other, based on a new report published under the Smart Connectivity program. The report investigates the current state within smart connectivity in the Nordics, and it forms the baseline for the process of defining prioritized areas for innovation in both mobility and logistics
