Chips Joint Undertaking (Chips JU) is a pioneering initiative from Horizon Europe Framework Programme (HORIZON) and is committed to catalysing research, development, and manufacturing capabilities across Europe. Chips JU’s Topic 3 Focus topic on “Service Oriented Framework for the Software Defined Vehicle of the future”, supports proposals to advance the automotive industry in Europe. The open architectures and building blocks of the Software-define vehicle middleware and API framework developed under this project shall aim at exposing the vehicle’s features and functionalities in the form of standard modular services and APIs, simplifying the development and certification of in-vehicle and edge-cloud applications, simplifying the access to vehicle data, functions and resources, making vehicle upgrades easier, simplifying the adoption of existing and new regulations, verification, validation and certification, and adding agility and speed to automotive engineering.

The consortium should be coordinated by a leading European industrial actor of the automotive industry (OEM, tier-1), or by a neutral organisation well established in the automotive software sector. The consortium must include: 

  • a large and representative number of European OEMs of motorised vehicles (passenger cars, trucks, buses, motor cycles, off-road) with headquarters in several Member States of the European Union and/or its associated countries; 
  • a large and representative number of European tier-1 automotive suppliers and technology companies, including semiconductor companies and software engineering experts;
  • a representative number of tool providers specialized on the described engineering toolchains above;  
  • innovative SMEs across the value chain; 
  • leading universities and research and technology organisations bringing the newest advances in relevant digital and other technologies and/or acting act as neutral mediators. 
  • actors from across a significant number of Participating States of the Chips-JU program with a strong focus on the automotive sector.

The award provides 10 – 20 million EUR in funding. More information can be found at Multiannual Programme 2023-2027.
