Horizon 2020 - Work Programme: Smart, green and integrated transport

The 2018-2020 Work Programme of Horizon 2020 holds many interesting innovation and research opportunities in reference to societal challenges

The priorities identified in this Work Programme will continue to pursue Societal Challenge overall objective of achieving a European transport system that is resilient, resourceefficient, climate- and environmentally-friendly, safe and seamless for the benefit of all citizens, the economy and society.

Funding priorities will be geared towards the present and future needs of citizens, businesses and EU markets, and strive to maximise value for the transport sector, the wider economy and ultimately, the people. These priorities are aimed at creating new opportunities for sustainable growth and employment.
