An EU mobility project is offering European cities and transport providers funding and expertise to help them apply sustainable mobility measures related to electrified transport.
The ELIPTIC project, part of the EU’s € 80bn research and innovation programme Horizon 2020, aims to save cities money and energy by developing new solutions to optimise and/or regenerate their electric public transport systems.
The project is calling on interested cities to apply for a ‘twinning’ fund which will enable cities to make use of the electromobility expertise of ELIPTIC’s partner cities and take part in workshops and study tours.
The twinning fund is a financing mechanism within the ELIPTIC project which aims to support the transfer of measures from ELIPTIC partner cities to ‘twin’ cities. Co-funding of up to 100 per cent is available to successful applicants and a maximum amount of €15 000 per applicant.
The application deadline for cities interested in becoming an ELIPTIC twin city is 31 August 2015. Applications may be submitted by individual or local groups of organisations.
