The GUIDE Consortium will work with members of the 6GIA, ERTICO and 5GAA first of all and extend to cover the extent of our stakeholder relationship model that also includes GSMA, EIM, UIC (and possibly ACEA in the future) to apply for CEF projects. The Consortium will support this pipeline development with common deployment models, knowledge about outcomes from projects in previous projects from CEF (deployment and studies projects) and other R&I programmes as well as the knowledge-base of 6GIA, ERTICO and 5GAA in general. Finally, the Consortium will always advocate for viewing CEF as a part of the financial solution with national/regional funding, the Recovery and Resilience Facility (RRF) and private-sector investment and borrowing being other fundamental elements.
The GUIDE Consortium will develop a culture of learning together, of using CEF as a means for iterative development of the approaches through the exchange of best practices among the projects and community building. The Consortium will build on the work already conducted as part of the two 5G Strategic Deployment Agendas in the areas of road and rail and collaborate with the Working Groups of the SNS-JU and the 5GAA to improve them with deployment roadmaps, cooperation models and relevant regulatory issues. This information will feed into the 5G Observatory.
The GUIDE Consortium is committed to the success of CEF as a vehicle for realising infrastructure where there is still market failure. The activities and outcomes of the CSA and its interfacing with the other CSAs funded by the European Commission (EC) will result in a profound knowledge of the stakeholder priorities and the evolutions of the Strategic Deployment Agendas (SDAs) for Connected and Automated Mobility and the Consortium will work with the EC to contribute effectively to the preparation of the 2024-2027 Work Programme.
