La Comisión Europea lanza un concurso de ideas para jóvenes innovadores que remitan propuestas innovadoras que ayuden a reducir las emisiones de CO2 del sector de transporte.
This transport innovation Challenge is organised to reward transport innovators with ideas for a cleaner and more efficient future in transport.
The EU is committed to cutting CO2 emissions by at least 40% by 2030 and by 80% by 2050. With transportation accounting for one quarter of CO2 emissions, there is a need to radically transform the way people and goods are transported. This Challenge will help move the EU along the path of decarbonisation and sustainable growth.
The 12 winners of the Challenge will get a free trip to Strasbourg (France) on 19, 20 and 21 June 2017 to follow the ITS Congress, Europe’s biggest gathering of professionals working in intelligent transport systems. The prize includes: transportation, accommodation and free entrance to the conference; a dedicated workshop to meet investors and EU policy makers and receive personal coaching; and an appearance on stage to pitch the winning idea to the conference audience.
To participate you just need a good idea for a product or service that will contribute to one of the following key European goals for transport: better mobility, better access to mobility, less pollution, less congestion, or more safety and security.
Who can apply?
The idea can come from a person, a team, a company (providing it is an SME) or any other type of legal entity anywhere in the European Union. In order to encourage young innovators, the person who attends the ITS European Congress must be under 35.
The deadline for applications is extended to 7 May 2017, 23:59h (CET).
