SESAR seeks proposals to demonstrate urban air mobility in open call backed by Horizon 2020 funding

The SESAR Joint Undertaking invites applicants to research “U-space capabilities and services to enable urban air mobility” in its latest open call for very-large scale demonstration projects within the framework of the SESAR 2020 research and innovation programme. The call covers a wide range of topics aimed at boosting the performance of aviation in Europe, with a focus on sustainability, capacity and urban air mobility. A total of EUR 19.5 million is earmarked for the research from the EU’s Horizon 2020 budget.

One of four specified topics, “U-space capabilities and services to enable urban air mobility” is intended to support the evolution of U-space services and technological capabilities that can enable safe and secure urban air mobility, meaning the provision of mobility services in an urban environment using air vehicles. The demonstrations in this category will build on outcomes from already completed SESAR U-space research and innovation.

Other topics include: Optimised use of airspace; integrated trajectory management; and environmental sustainability.

Submission deadline: 29 April 2020
