Looking for a Dutch EU project partner?
Horizon2020 is creating new opportunities to solve shared traffic and transportation problems experienced by cities across the EU. In The Netherlands, Mobycon has created a network of municipalities, regions and provinces interested in keeping up with Horizon2020 opportunities.
Mobycon is using the H2020 Network to connect members and develop project proposals. Members of this network are kept informed of calls for proposal – in December 2014 a new call is opening – upcoming workshops, conferences and other information related to the programme. If you are outside The Netherlands but would like to find a Dutch partner, contact network head, Ronald Jorna.
H2020 is a programme created by the European Commission to drive economic growth and create jobs. 80 Billion Euro will be available between 2014 and 2020 to boost research and innovation through emphasising excellent scientific research, industrial leadership and societal challenges. For governments, the third priority offers opportunities to create projects related to smart, green and integrated transport.
In addition to the Horizon2020 programme, which started earlier this year, two other EU programmes will open end of this year or early 2015, the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) for the funding of the TEN-T network (including nodes) and the Interreg V programme about regional cooperation.
Mobycon has more than 10 years of experience working on European Commission projects. Mobycon CEO, Johan Diepens and Senior Consultant Ronald Jorna recently shared their expertise through a workshop and presentation at the spring meeting of the European Metropolitan Transport Authorities (EMTA).
Between Mobycon's experience and our network, there are many opportunities to collaborate on EU projects with a Dutch partner. Please get in touch with Ronald Jorna, if you have ideas or questions.
