Over €1.2 billion requested in Horizon 2020 transport funding

INEA has received 238 project proposals by the deadline of 16 January for eight topics in the areas of waterborne transport, logistics, aviation, transport infrastructure and safety under the Mobility for Growth call.


They have requested €1.29 billion, while the available EU funding is €122 million. The projects will now be assessed in a two-stage evaluation. Within the next three months, applicants will be informed whether they have qualified to the second stage of the selection process. If so, they will be invited to submit full project proposals by 12 September 2019. 


The final decision about which projects will receive EU funding will be known by April 2020 at the latest.

The selection of projects will be done by external independent experts. These evaluators are drawn from the European Commission’s database.


The Commission is looking to expand the database through a call for experts covering a very broad range of fields. If you fit the profile and would like to be considered for evaluations, please sign up in the Funding and Tender opportunities portal.
