On 2 November 2016, the transnational call Electric Mobility Europe (EMEurope) Call 2016 has been published. 14 European countries and regions have set up this call for proposals in collaboration with the European Commission and the European Green Vehicles Initiative Association. Together they pool 23 million euro to finance innovation projects that promote and further advance the deployment of electric mobility (e-mobility) in urban areas.
The EMEurope Call 2016 supports projects that aim at one or more of the following 5 key areas of e-mobility:
System integration (transport, urban and sub-urban areas);
Integration of urban freight and city logistics in e-mobility;
Smart Mobility concepts and ICT applications;
Consumer behaviour and societal trends.
The EMEurope Call 2016 follows a two-step procedure for the submission and evaluation of proposals, now starting with the submission of light proposals. In a next step a full proposal submission will follow for those proposals selected from the light proposal evaluation.
Detailed information about the formal conditions, criteria an specifications of the call and instructions on writing and submitting a light proposal can be found on the EMEurope website and in the EMEurope Call 2016 Guide for Applicants. Proposals have to be submitted through the Call Management Tool. Deadline for the submission of light proposals is 6 February 2017, 17:00 CET.
An Information and Brokerage event will be held at the Diamant Centre in Brussels on 25 November 2016. Because of limited capacity, registration is required.
