    Is there an established mechanism (or plan to have) to invite stakeholders to prepare relevant proposals for projects?

    CliffVC edited question

      Indeed, all European ATM stakeholders will be invited and supported to prepare relevant proposals for projects. This will first take place through their involvement in the DP development phase through the SCP, where they will be able to express their opinion on the DP, including on what the DP plans for them to implement and by when. Then, after the DP is approved by EC and used by INEA as the specification for the call, stakeholders will be expected to submit proposals according to the DP. In this submission phase, SDM will activate a “support to stakeholders” service to facilitate the development of proposals complying with the DP.
