108 applicants pass to the second stage of two Horizon 2020 transport calls

Creation date: April 21, 2017

INEA has invited 108 applicants to submit full project proposals in the second and final selection stage of 12 Mobility for Growth and three Automated Road Transport topics by 19 October and 27 September 2017 respectively. These project proposals have been selected as best among 386 total applications in the first stage of the call evaluation.

Successful Mobility for Growth projects are expected to develop innovative transport solutions in the fields of aviation, waterborne transport, road safety, green urban mobility, transport logistics and infrastructure. Research supporting policy making will also be supported. Automated driving systems for passenger cars, trucks and urban transport, as well as the underlying digital infrastructure will be supported through the Automated Road Transport call. Take a look at more detailed call description.

The results of the final evaluation will be known at the latest by 27 May 2018 for the Mobility for Growth and 19 June 2018 for the Automated Road Transport call.
