ERA-NET Cofund Urban Accessibility and Connectivity (ENUAC)

ERA-NET Cofund Urban Accessibility and Connectivity (ENUAC)

The ERA-NET Cofund Urban Accessibility and Connectivity (ENUAC) invites researchers, cities, municipalities, businesses, civil society and other stakeholders to build transnational consortia to create challenge-driven innovation and research projects that address the challenges of sustainable urban passenger mobility, freight, transport and connectivity as integral and essential parts of sustainable urban development.

Aim of the call

The ERA-NET Cofund Urban Accessibility and Connectivity (ENUAC) call for proposals aims at creating and testing new solutions and approaches for sustainable urban mobility. With this shared ambition, 16 countries are pooling resources to implement a series of calls for research and innovation projects as well as accompanying measures to create highest impact. The joint calls and actions will focus on measures to improve urban accessibility and connectivity for all groups of society while moving towards more sustainable urban mobility systems.

The call opened in September 2019 and the submission deadline was in September 2020. The projects started in March 2021 and are expected to end in 2024.

Call topics

The call is divided into five challenges that need to be responded in order to move towards realising sustainable urban accessibility and connectivity for all, taking advantage of current solutions and approaches. Each proposal must be attached to at least one challenge but may be related to several challenges if it is focussed on a crosscutting subject or an issue that is at the frontier of several

Challenge 1: Evolving solutions for an integrated approach on sustainable urban physical mobility and transport, land use and digital connectivity
Challenge 2: Develop and support the implementation of innovative mobility systems and services with a potential to contribute to sustainable urban mobility
Challenge 3: Transform and re-organise urban spaces to pave the ground for sustainable urban mobility and accessibility at local level, from the street scale to the district
Challenge 4: Develop effective policy options for achieving a shift towards sustainable urban accessibility and connectivity
Challenge 5: Change behaviours and perspectives towards sustainable urban accessibility and connectivity
