Having identified the collective need for “a healthy planet as our greatest challenge and responsibility”, the President–elect, Ms von der Leyen proposed bolder emissions targets, with a reduction of 50% to 55% by 2030 and committed to submit a plan for a “Green Deal for Europe” and a European Climate Law within her first 100 days in office. She also announced plans for sustainable European investment, also through the partial conversion of EIB funds into a “climate bank”, to provide €1 trillion in investments within a decade.

The Future Mobility targets projects in the transport sector through deployment of innovative technologies. Projects that contribute to the decarbonisation of transport, energy efficiency or digital and technological innovation through a cleaner, smarter and safer mobility. The European Commission has already launched or will launch programmes and financial instruments as part of its new European green deal strategy to reach these ambitious goals.

In the event, different funding opportunities to promote clean, sustainable and innovative transport projects will be presented. The event will also provide a timely opportunity to raise our awareness about the European Innovation Council as well as to discuss the continuation of previous European programmes to support innovation and technology after several decades of success.

Speakers include Anton Giulio Marin (DG MOVE), Roman Doubrava (DG CLIMA) and Stéphane Ouaki (DG RTD).
