Green Vehicles

The Green Vehicles call focuses on road transport research and innovation. It addresses the following road transport challenges:

  • improvements in energy efficiency
  • the use of new types on non-conventional energies (such as electricity, CNG, LNG, renewable and tailored fuels)
  • Research and innovation under this call will include:
  • advanced power-train technologies
  • new vehicle architecture
  • interfaces between the vehicle and the recharging infrastructure

Innovation activities linked with other EU funding mechanisms (such as cohesion and regional funds) will be encouraged.

Please refer to the Work Programme 2016-2017 for more details on Green Vehicles. You might also want to look at the website of the European Green Vehicles initiative, a contractual public-private partnership dedicated to delivering green vehicles and mobility system solutions which match the major societal, environmental and economic challenges ahead.
