Draft EC Work Programme 2023 – 2024 published!
Reducing transport’s impact on the climate and natural environment is the most urgent priority, to meet COP21 Paris Agreement commitments and align with broader EU transport, climate, and energy goals. Research plays a crucial role in achieving the ambitious targets the EU has set in these key areas. Transforming transport will also be key to delivering the EU’s next research and innovation funding programme, particularly the Horizon Europe Mission area on climate-neutral and smart cities.
The WP has :
- The EU Missions aims to address some of our society’s greatest challenges. They are bold and inspirational, with clear objectives that are time-bound, realistic, measurable, and targeted.
- 6 destinations (major chapters), within which 189 calls for proposals are made. The one concerning the CCAM Partnership is Destination 6 – Safe and resilient transport and smart mobility services for passengers and goods.
