Get Engaged!!! Freight & Logistics in Towards zero emission road transport (2ZERO) Horizon Europe partnership
Friday, January 15th, 2021
ALICE is one of the Platforms supporting the Horizon Europe Partnership: Towards zero emission road transport (2Zero) that will be launched in 2021 and will last till 2027 and plans to lever up to 1 billion Euro.
The partnership aims to accelerate the development of a climate neutral road transport system in Europe with a user centric approach. 2ZERO is developing a common vision and Strategic Research & Innoation Agenda* that will be implement through the Horizon Europe Programme partnership.
Main achievements by 2030 will focus on wide deployment of zero-emission, affordable user-centric solutions, CO2 emission reduction and air quality improvements. The partnership targets all type of road transport vehicles operations from cities to long distance freight transport. A major challenge addressed will be the introduction of zero-emission and competitive long-distance heavy-duty vehicles.
