Through the Test-it campaign, Innoviris wants to give innovators the chance to develop and test their products, solutions and concepts and try them out with end users.

The applied research and innovation projects are carried out in living labs, in which researchers, users and a platform of users are involved.


 

 

 

 

2017 Edition 

Brussels Smart Mobility Challenge

The objective of the 'Smart Mobility Challenge’ is to develop an efficient mobility management based on existing structures by optimising interaction, connectivity and collaboration. The call is based on two important aspects:  the collaboration of different actors and the creaton of specific spaces devoted to experimentation and innovation. 

In the context of this call, innovative techniques and processes are applied to real Smart Mobility projects. These techniques and processes, tested and improved via the Living Labs projects, can subsequently be applied at a larger scale, with the aim of offering affordable solutions for Smart Mobility in the Brussels-Capital Region.

In short: the main objective of each Living Lab is to develop, test and implement Smart Mobility solutions which address the specific mobility challenges Brussels faces.

 


The Brussels entities which may submit an application to Innoviris in the context of this call are:

  • enterprises whose place of business is established in the Brussels-Capital Region

  • research institutes (universities, university colleges and collective research centres) in the Brussels-Capital Region

  • non-profit organisations whose place of business is established in the Brussels-Capital Region

  • regional and municipal authorities of the Brussels Capital Region concerned by the Smart Mobility Challenge. If you are a public authority, please contact Gaëtan Danneels directly for more information.

Self-employed persons who do not fit into one of the categories described above cannot submit an application. However, they may participate as a subcontractor or a self-employed person in a project in the budget of one of the partners.

 

The selection procedure of the projects consists of two phases:

  • a first call for project outlines, and a demand for the setup of a project if necessary, for December 15, 2017

  • a second call for the selected project outlines, for the submission of a full proposal, for May 18, 2018

Type of funding 

There are three different types of funding depending on your situation and the situation of your business partner. 

  1. You are a non-profit association which does not have an economic activity (no turnover resulting from an offer of goods or services). In this case, Innoviris can intervene up to 100% in your project;

  2. You are a non-profit association with occasional economic activities. These economic activities cannot be a daily part of the association's activities.

    In practical terms, the capacity allocated to these economic activities annually cannot exceed 20% of the total annual capacity of the association in question (material, equipment, labour and fixed capital). To evaluate this, Innoviris will rely on either cost accounting statements or turnover (sales, services and similar) which must account for less than 20% of total income (including contributions, donations, legacies and subsidies).

    In this case, Innoviris can intervene up to 100% in your project.

  3. You are a non-profit association with regular economic activities (the capacity allocated to economic activity annually exceeds 20% of the total annual capacity, see point 2 below for the evaluation of this criterion by Innoviris).
    In this case, the association is considered a business and you must refer to the previous section relating to businesses.

    Find more information about the calculation method for the size of an organization (similar to a company).

    For intervention rates less than 100%, the entity must demonstrate its ability to finance its share of the project through funds other than public financing. Proof of the share may be provided by various documents (balance sheet, bank statement, capital, bank loans, etc.).
