Dear Subscriber,   

Welcome to the March 2014 issue of the EPN Consulting Newsletter received every month by over 2,100 selected professionals in Europe.

As you can see in this newsletter and in the Events section of the EPN Consulting website in the next month or so lots of deadlines are scheduled for submitting the first proposals to Horizon 2020 calls.

The majority of these deadlines regard the 1st stage of 2-stage calls, therefore only 15 pages max are expected with an overall project budget. During the 2nd stage, if the 1st one is evaluated successfully, there will be time to add more technical and budgetary details.

With regard to Transport, the European Commission launched in Feb 2014 a consultation concerning "A funding scheme supporting sustainable and efficient freight transport services". There is still time to fill in the 43-question questionnaire that will close on 02 Apr 2014.
More information is available here.

Finally, if you intend to open a new business in a foreign country it may be useful to have first a look at the Report on Global Corruption Barometer 2013.


EPN Consulting as a Consultancy
Contact EPN Consulting  for more information: you may want to book our professional assistance to convert your project idea into a real & funded work.
 
Alternatively, if you need pure consultancy, EPN Consulting will carry out feasibility and viability studies that will include some intelligence on EU projects that have been already funded to catch ideas and adapt them to the Client's needs. This will ensure the design of cutting-edge solutions that avoid re-inventing the wheel with a much appreciated consequence of saving time and money.

EPN Consulting
provides assistance to public and private organisations as well as Universities and Research Centres.
Special attention on cities that would like to become "Smart" and be assisted during this challenging and exciting process  as well as on SMEs that could enjoy a growth by using the great number of European funding available.

EPN Consulting
is also an ideal partner for your project consortium as we have got a lot of experience in dealing with European projects. Contact us to know more about how we can help you.
If some of you are already involved in European projects and would like to publicise your progress, contact us and you will be impressed by the range of opportunities that are waiting for you.
For instance, you could apply to the new EPN Consulting Sponsorship Scheme that has been carefully designed to help acquire/increase professional visibility in Europe and boost your business.
Contact us to know which benefits you will generate by applying to this scheme.

Better Public Transport Fare Policy for more resilient funding 

Public Transport fares have been in the spotlight recently, prompting UITP (International Association of Public Transport) to publish a timely Policy Brief exploring the issues surrounding public transport pricing and offering vital guidance for decision-makers.

Public Transport needs resilient funding, but for this to happen its funding mix needs to be strengthened and diversified.

 

In the Policy Brief, UITP explains why regular, moderate and accountable fare adjustments should be the rule.

Transport - Regional European Electronic Toll Services (EETS) receive EU co-funding      
EU
04 Feb 2014 - The European Union is set to co-finance with over 2.2 Million EUR from the TEN-T Programme a series of studies aiming to help realise EETS on a cross-border regional scale.


The studies, selected for funding under the 2012 TEN-T Multi-Annual Programme, specifically cover the electronically tolled primary road network of seven Member States (Austria, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, Poland and Spain) plus Switzerland (receiving no EU support).

 

It aims to deploy EETS on the ground, taking into account the perspective of full European coverage.

ICT - 63 Billion EUR and 4.8 Million jobs. This is the app market in the next 5 years       
EU
13 Feb 2014 - The EU's app sector has gone from zero to digital superhero in less than five years. By 2018 it could employ 4.8 million people and contribute €63 billion to the EU economy according to a report presented in Brussels.

The study, carried out by GIGAOM and NUI Galway for the European Commission, shows that Europe's app developers are up to the challenge of taking the global lead. Currently, EU and North American developers generate the same levels (42% each) of app revenues in crucial EU and US markets.

Although the future is bright, developers have raised concerns about the skills gap, connectivity and fragmentation which could put the app boom at risk.

Eurocities published its 2013 Annual Report and 2014 Work Programme

Eurocities
EUROCITIES is the network of major European cities. Its members are the elected local and municipal governments of major European cities.
 

EUROCITIES was founded in 1986 by the mayors of six large cities: Barcelona, Birmingham, Frankfurt, Lyon, Milan and Rotterdam.

 

Today, Eurocities  brings together the local governments of over 130 of Europe's largest cities and 40 partner cities, that govern a total of 130 million citizens across 35 countries.

 

Eurocities' objective is to reinforce the important role that local governments should play in a multilevel governance structure. It aims to shape the opinions of Brussels stakeholders and ultimately shift the focus of EU legislation in a way which allows city governments to tackle strategic challenges at local level.

 

Eurocities recently published the 2013 Annual Report and 2014 Work Programme that can be found here (PDF).  

Roaming - 300 Million Extra Customer for telecom companies when roaming ends, survey shows   
  
17 Feb 2014 - According to a new survey of 28,000 EU citizens 94% of Europeans who travel outside their home country limit their use of services like Facebook, because of mobile roaming charges.
The European Commission calculates that telecoms companies are missing out on a market of around 300 million phone users because of current pricing strategies, with negative effects for other businesses such as app makers.

At the same time as booming use of mobile at home, especially use of mobile data, other effects of roaming premiums include:

  1. 47% would never use mobile internet in another EU country.

  2. Only 1 out of 10 would use e-mails in the same way as at home

  3. More than a quarter of us simply switch off our mobiles when we travel in the EU

  4. Millions divert to SMS rather than pay for calls

Frequent travellers - the most lucrative section of the potential market - are more likely to switch-off their mobile phone data roaming capabilities than the occasional travellers.

 

The EC believes this is because frequent travellers are better informed about the real costs of data roaming in Europe than less frequent travellers.

Transport (UK) - E.A. claims that 60 miles/hour Motorways Speed Limit could increase Car Fuel Economy by 22%
 

24 Feb 2014 - With the Highway Agency's eight week consultation period for a proposed 60mph speed limit (instead of 70 mph) between junctions 28 to 35a of the M1 due to close next week, modelling by Emissions Analytics has found that the reduced limit could result in an average increase in fuel economy of 22%, varying between 15% and 34% depending on the make and model of car.

As publicised last week by Automotive PR, data from testing performed by Emissions Analytics, a tailpipe testing and analysis company, shows that real world vehicle emissions can deviate, sometimes drastically, from official figures.

 

Existing simulation models usually underestimate emissions, it claims, because they're not based on data collected in the field. Emissions Analytics's approach is claimed to provide a more realistic and constantly updated simulation.

Urban Transport (UK) - Car Sharing among solutions for London's bad Air Quality and Congestion  
 
 


26 Feb 2014 - In 16 years, London is expected to have 10 million residents. London's air quality is already the worst among European capitals, and the city's popularity risks creating a city where residents waste ever more time and pollute ever more air looking for parking.

"Many aspects of London traffic are very good, for example the investment in public transport" ,says Malcolm Fergusson, transport and sustainability expert, and author of a new report about London traffic.

"But we still have too many cars, and the effect of the congestion charge is declining. We need more space for busses, bikes and delivery vehicles".

 

While the share of car trips is declining, London's growing population means the traffic is getting worse. The 10 million residents expecting to live here in 2030 will add a projected 350,000 cars to the 2.6m cars already populating the city's streets.

The Website of the Month: INNOVATION POLICY PLATFORM
 
This month we have chosen the Innovation Policy Platform, currently in beta phase.

The Innovation Policy Platform (IPP) is a joint initiative developed by the OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development) and the World Bank. The aim of the platform is to provide policy practitioners around the world with a simple and easy-to-use tool, supporting them in the innovation policy-making process. This is done by facilitating collective learning about innovation policy, both conceptual and how-to aspects, tailored to the needs of developing and developed countries.

The IPP is expected to find a variety of users with different functional and informational needs, including:
- Policy makers who design and implement innovation policy, allocate resources, and set priorities for long-term development and growth agendas
- Policy analysts, particularly from government, universities, think tanks and consultancies, who inform policy making through concept development, analysis and advice
- International organisations who work with countries to improve the design and implementation of innovation policies
- Non-governmental stakeholders such as NGOs, firms, and entrepreneurs who engage in innovation policy processes
