ALICE is one of the supporting platforms of the 2Zero, Towards zero emission road transport partnership, a co-programmed partnership launched by the European Commission under the Horizon Europe Programme.
The European Commission allocated approximately € 200 million in 2021/2022 for the research & innovation on hydrogen and electric vehicles (e.g. NEXTeTRUCK project) and new projects on HDV long haul, e.g. ZEFES. The European Commission is more and more keen on our holistic approach in electric and hydrogen vehicles research as ALICE calls for. Therefore, the involvement of logistics users and companies is strategically relevant for the partnership and a great opportunity for companies interested in participating in this innovation projects.
2Zero launched the revision of its Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (SRIA) on the 26th of January. This is a great occasion for our sector to drive the change and support defining the agenda for the rest of the partnership duration.
The partnership SRIA is the guiding document for identifying future research and innovation priorities to be funded as part of the programme. Focusing on pre-competitive research and innovation activities, the partnership aims at:
