ERTRAC Info Day on Automated Road Transport call

6 November 2015, Brussels

ERTRAC has organised a dedicated Info Day on the "Automated Road Transport" call, which will be funded by the work programme 2016-2017 of the Horizon2020 Transport Programme. This specific information day followed the Info Day on the Transport Progamme, which was organised by the EC on the previous day.

The meeting was used as Info Day and networking/brokerage event, with the following approach:

  • presentation of each topic by the European Commission services
  • questions and answers
  • short proposals of ideas and call for partners

Information on the "ART" call were complemented by presentations of other calls from H2020 involving automation: the Large Scale Pilot funded by the Internet of Things programme and the ITS chapter of the Transport programme.
