Electromobility+ transnational call open
'Electromobility+' is a joint initiative involving 13 European countries and regions under the European Green Cars programme. Its aim is to create sustainable conditions for the development of electric mobility in Europe by 2025.
Increasing awareness of climate change, the scale of the challenges involved, and the pressing need to prepare for a post-petrol future have prompted most of the world’s developed countries to step up research, testing and deployment of more energy-efficient and less petrol fuel-dependent transport systems.
Under the Electromobility+ initiative, national and regional authorities are bringing together €20 million of public funding, while the European Commission may contribute a maximum of €10 million within the framework of ERA-NET Plus.
The Electromobility + call is divided into five key thematic areas:
- Energy and environmental policy approach
- Usage patterns, economic models, actors involved
- Technical dimensions of the recharging systems
- Testing, trials and normative standards
- Technology-based Innovation
Countries and regions
The call is addressed to transnational research consortia in the following countries and regions: France, Germany, The Netherlands, Austria, Finland, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Poland, Turkey, Flanders (Belgium), Piedmont (Italy), Andalusia (Spain).
