Announcement: 15 projects recommended for funding in the ERA-NET Cofund Urban Accessibility and Connectivity

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 ERA-NET Cofund Urban Accessibility and Connectivity (ENUAC) was opened late 2019 and invited 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.

A total of 86 proposals were successfully submitted in the first evaluation phase and from these a total of 37 were invited for the full proposal stage. During the fall these proposals have been assessed by an expert panel and the national funding agencies have now agreed on a list of 15 proposals selected for funding*. The projects will start beginning of 2021 and continue until 2024.

*Some national funders take the final decision when funding the selected projects. Your project will be considered as funded provided that all parties receive funding from the respective national funder.
