ERTICO would like to inform its Partners about the funding opportunity “MG-4-6-2019 Supporting Joint Actions on sustainable urban accessibility and connectivity”.

As an ERA-NET Cofund, this call is designed to support public-public partnerships (P2Ps) and other initiatives between Member States.  Typical recipients for this funded scheme are research councils, funding agencies or other national or regional organisations that implement research programmes.

The deadline is set on 25 April 2019 and the budget foreseen for the winning proposal is 4-5 M€. The scope addresses the potential impact and possibilities for deployment of new mobility services and initiatives by analysing behavioural responses and estimating effects on the various aspects of sustainability (i.e. the environment, economic development and people’s well-being), for both passenger and freight transport.

The expected impact is to bring effective trans-national, pan-European research networking and synergies among national, regional and EU research programmes in sustainable urban accessibility and connectivity and in increasing the evidence base for urban mobility policies at local, regional, national and European level, as well as global level through the involvement of Chinese organisations.
