The European Transport Innovation Challenge
The European transport innovation Challenge is organized 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.
