Call for Actions to support uptakes of Horizon 2020 and Horizon Europe projects’ outcomes

Wednesday, March 8th, 2023

EU-funded research and innovation projects in the transport sector have played an important role in advancing innovations, accelerating digitalisation of the sector, reducing emissions and pollution, improving efficiency, and strengthening competitiveness. Although dissemination and exploitation have always been an important part of research and innovation projects, it has been noted that not all project outcomes have been exploited and, eventually, expected societal impacts may not be delivered.

To address this issue, we call on all project beneficiaries, associations with interests in the Horizon Europe Programme, and European Commission to take actions in support uptakes of R&I project outcomes to realise full potential of innovation in the transport sector.
