Consortium

fundingGiven the focus of the project on an advanced vehicle communication system for transport applications, the consortium has been carefully selected to gather partners from the road, insurance and transport industry with a mid and long term perspective along with telecommunication companies and research centres and universities.

The leadership of the project is ensured by SANEF, while EUTELSAT is in charge of the technological aspects, ensuring a well balanced decision process between transportation actors and telecommunications companies.

The consortium is a balance of Industrials, SMEs, research institutions and universities, all with specific knowledge and experience relevant to the projects objectives. This leads to a very good complementarity of the consortium in terms of technical expertise and contributions on the one hand and in terms of domain of activity and business on the other hand. Note that the originality of the consortium is to merge companies coming from the transportation industry with partners from the IT domain.
