Society is becoming confident that it can address the Grand Challenges of the 21st century: It can address
global warming by taking decisive action, can invent and deploy innovative transport systems to reduce traffic
problems and will be able to solve the issues associated with the ageing population. Smart applications enabled
by advanced communication networks will be a centrepiece of many solutions offering the hope of a better
world. Communication networks have catalysed tremendous economic development in the emerging countries
of the world advanced, ubiquitous communication networks will now also spark a new wave of innovation
and employment in the developed world the Future Internet. The eMobility NetWorld project will establish a
dialogue, building on the successful eMobility Platform, to identify the research needed on Future Internet issues
to enable it to support smart applications needed by society. Connecting and communicating the value of the
prioritised research topics to the needs of society is what the eMobility NetWorld project is all about.

Technology related priorities will be captured in the Strategic Research Agenda. The key messages regarding
the value of the proposed research to society will be identified and then professionally packaged as multi-media
presentations. The messages will be addressed to key decision makers in Europe and in the international arena
in both industry and politics through conferences, specific workshops and meetings, via an interactive web site
and through the annual Future Networks & Mobile Summit, which is sponsored by the project.
The result will be a broad consensus on priorities, resulting in coordination of research activities and increased
awareness of the priorities by key decision makers. eMobility NetWorld will be undertaken by a consortium of
experienced industry and academic participants with an effort of 62 person-months.
