Weak Signal's description 
Telecommunications is experiencing major change. Sector actors are searching for new strategies as globalisation, mergers, convergence and new and disruptive technologies happen. The eMobility Technology Platform was formed to address this challenge and has almost 500 members. It has a track record of success in facilitating consensus building. The strategic objective of the eMobility CA project is to facilitate the emergence of a common understanding, between the European sector actors, leading to agreed road-maps and contributing to the global competitiveness of the European telecommunications sector on the following key challenges: the need to integrate the road-maps of the mobile and wireless sector with those of the health, transport and the environment sectors, the need to extend the eMobility Strategic Research Agenda to cover new technologies, the need to support the definition of a European perspective on the Future Internet, positioning these views in the international context, and the need to build the opportunities to use Structural Funds to develop leading edge markets in Europe, promoting the take-up of the RandD output of collaborative projects.
