EU project offers funding for cities interested in developing electromobilty

By Yannick Bousse / Updated: 22 Jul 2015

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 2015Applications may be submitted by individual or local groups of organisations.
