15 projects recommended for funding under the ERA-NET Cofund on Urban Accessibility and Connectivity

By Conall Martin / Updated: 13 Apr 2021

The 23 national funding agencies, from 16 countries, in the ERA-NET Urban Accessibility and Connectivity (ENUAC) have agreed on a list of 15 projects recommended for funding to start beginning of 2021.

The ENUAC was opened in 2019 and invited researchers, cities, municipalities, businesses, civil society and other stakeholders to build transnational consortia to create challenge-driven innovation and research projects. The call for proposals aimed to address challenges of sustainable urban passenger mobility, freight, transport and connectivity as integral and essential parts of sustainable development.

37 projects were invited for the full proposal stage, from a total of 86 proposals which were successfully submitted during the first evaluation phase. The proposals were assessed by an expert panel and the national funding agencies have now provided a list of 15 proposals to receive funding. The projects will start in 2021 and continue until 2024.

A project catalogue is currently under preparation and will be made available, and the 15 recommended projects are listed below. For further information about the recommended projects, and the ERA-NET Urban Accessibility and Connectivity, please visit the following websites:
