€676 million requested for Horizon 2020 transport projects

Creation date: February 2, 2017

INEA has received 136 project proposals by yesterday's deadline of five Mobility for Growth and nine Green Vehicles topics. The total available budget for both calls is €163.7 million.

Successful Mobility for Growth projects are expected to develop innovative transport solutions in the field of aviation, improve transport infrastructure, as well as carry out research supporting policy making.  Projects on the use of alternative fuels, hybrid and electric vehicles, improved heavy duty vehicles, and fast charging infrastructure will be supported through the Green Vehicles call. Take a look at more detailed call description.

The results of the evaluation will be known no later than 1 July 2017. The selection of projects will be done by external independent experts. These evaluators are drawn from the European Commission's database.

The Commission is looking to expand the database through a call for experts covering a very broad range of fields. If you fit the profile and would like to be considered for evaluations, please sign up in the Participant Portal.
