The GO4SEM project will detect and analyze the specific technology and product needs in emerging e-mobility supply chains in third countries. It will use this analysis to assess and evaluate strengths and weaknesses of global e-mobility supply chains and define possible opportunities for European SME’s for a competitive entry in those supply chains, whereby a special focus on ICT will be taken. As such it will indicate R&D priorities for the European SMEs and other stakeholders in order to improve or develop the adequate technologies for these opportunities. As a consequence, the GO4SEM project will give input through the core group members and the associated partners assisting the European Commission in setting up ICT focused research agendas for Horizon 2020 and the future European Green Cars Initiative PPP, especially with respect to dedicated initiatives targeted SMEs.  In addition, since the complete e-mobility supply chain is considered, it can be expected that in these recommendations will stimulate discussions and agendas in other areas.
