The Commission shall communicate directly with the participants in the programme set up in Israel and their subcontractors. They may provide directly to the Commission all relevant information and documents which they are required to provide on the basis of the instruments referred to in this Agreement and the grant agreements and/or contracts concluded for its implementation. 1. In accordance with the policy of the European Union, this Agreement shall not apply to geographical areas which came under the administration of the State of Israel after 5 June 1967. This position should not be interpreted in such a way as to undermine Israel`s principled position on the matter. Accordingly, the Parties agree that the application of this Agreement shall not affect the status of such territories. The agreement is historic, as never before has the EU budget been raised through the initial proposal of the July European Council. The increase in the EU budget by the European Parliament is planned for the so-called flagship programmes. Horizon Europe for research and innovation will receive an increase of €4 billion and a strengthening through the €5 billion temporary EU Strengthening Instrument. However, this increase is based on additional liquidity that is not yet available and a redeployment of funds.
There are no guaranteed additional contributions from Member States, which leaves room for many uncertainties. The programme consists of three research axes called “pillars”: the first pillar, “Excellent Science”, focuses on basic research. It has a budget of €24 billion. The second pillar is industrial leadership, with a budget of €14 billion. Managed by DG Enterprise, it is based on the strategies of the Europe 2020 strategy and the Innovation Union. The third pillar finances possible solutions to social and economic problems, the “societal challenges” (SC). In order to guarantee a scalable, flexible and cost-effective system, IMPETUS proposes the application of the service paradigm and intelligent concepts. At the same time, the quality and integrity of the data are taken into account in order to ensure a safe execution of all operations.
To achieve these goals, the project began to characterize data processes and services of crucial importance for drone operations. . . .
