Mobility for Growth

The Mobility for Growth call is part of the Horizon 2020 Smart, green and integrated transport challenge. It addresses the following transport challenges:

  • mode-specific (aviation, rail, road, waterborne)
  • transport integration specific challenges (urban, logistics, intelligent transport systems, infrastructure)
  • cross-cutting issues

Research and innovation under this call will integrate transport means and infrastructure into a user friendly European transport system of smart connected mobility and logistics:

  • making equipment and systems for vehicles, aircraft and vessels smarter, more automated, cleaner and quieter, while reducing the use of fossil fuels
  • finding smart infrastructure solutions to deploy innovative traffic management and information systems, advanced traveller services, efficient logistics, construction and maintenance technologies

You will find more details on the Mobility for Growth call in the Smart, green and integrated transport Work Programme 2018-2020.
