ERA-NET Cofund Urban Accessibility and Connectivity (ENUAC)

 · The ERA-NET Cofund Urban Accessibility and Connectivity (ENUAC) call for proposals, planned to open in December/January, invites researchers, cities, municipalities, businesses, civil society and other stakeholders to build transnational consortia to create challenge-driven innovation and research projects that address the challenges of sustainable urban passenger mobility, freight, transport and connectivity as integral and essential parts of sustainable urban development. This call is planned to open in December 2019 or January 2020, this page will continously be updated with information on exact dates. 

Actions able to be supported

Proposals should focus on urban areas, in the context of achieving climate neutral and sustainable cities. They should be forward-looking, solution-oriented, contributing to transport and mobility policy, especially in relation with SUMPs (Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans) and SULPs (Sustainable Urban Logistics Plans)

The results of the funded projects are expected to make a clear contribution to the attainment of relevant urban, regional, national and European EU Transport Policy objectives (including TEN-T). Further, projects are expected to especially address the potential impact and possibilities for deployment of (potentially new) mobility and transport modes, technologies, services and concepts by analysing behavioural responses and estimating effects on the various aspects of sustainability (i.e. the environment, economic development and people’s well-being) for both passenger and freight transport.

Rate of co-financing and conditions

Not yet available at the time of publication on this website. Will be made available when the call opens (end of 2019 or January 2020).

Other important information

The call is divided into five challenges that need to be responded in order to move towards realising sustainable urban accessibility and connectivity for all, taking advantage of current solutions and approaches.

Each proposal must be attached to at least one challenge but may be related to several challenges if it is focussed on a crosscutting subject or an issue that is at the frontier of several

Challenge 1: Evolving solutions for an integrated approach on sustainable urban physical mobility and transport, land use and digital connectivity
Challenge 2: Develop and support the implementation of innovative mobility systems and services with a potential to contribute to sustainable urban mobility
Challenge 3: Transform and re-organise urban spaces to pave the ground for sustainable urban mobility and accessibility at local level, from the street scale to the district
Challenge 4: Develop effective policy options for achieving a shift towards sustainable urban accessibility and connectivity
Challenge 5: Change behaviours and perspectives towards sustainable urban accessibility and connectivity
