The overall goal of the ARTES Element 20 programme can be summarised as "the development of operational services for a wide range of users through the combination of different systems". To achieve this, the following objectives have been defined: Promotion of space applications to a wider range of users, especially those who are not aware of the benefits that space technologies can bring to them; Development of new operational services for these users, involving a broader participation by actors on both the demand and supply sides; Utilisation of at least two existing and different space assets (such as Satellite Communications, Earth Observation, Satellite Navigation, Human Spaceflight technologies and others), leading to a better exploitation of existing space capacity and know-how together with a better understanding of how they should evolve to meet user requirements; Cross-fertilisation across disciplines (e.g. impact of Climate on Health, on Energy, on Transport, etc...) together with the development of a consistent approach across Integrated Applications initiatives, to maximise their efficient and cost- effective implementation. ARTES 20 operates via a 'Call for Proposals' which is always open. Partners respond with proposals as they find it opportune. The activities proposed in response to this 'Call for Proposals' must be relevant to above mentioned ARTES 20 programme objectives. Although not a competitive tender action, the ARTES 20 Call for Proposals is published on EMITS in order to achieve a higher degree of visibility. The closing date that will be mentioned upon issue of the Call for Proposals is established solely for technical reasons connected with EMITS and can be disregarded.
