Joint EC / European Green Cars Initiative Clustering Event - July 2012

From 11 Jul 2012 to 12 Jul 2012 |Fondation Universitaire, Rue d'Egmont 11 - Brussels

Over 50 projects have been launched under the Europaen Green Cars Initiative as a result of the first two calls for proposals and the recent third call has yielded further projects to be launched soon.

In view of contributing to coherence among EC funded activities from a specific domain, the Commission promotes clustering and concertation meetings. The services DG for Communications Networks, Content and TechnologyDG Research and Innovation and DG Mobility and Transport were thus supporting this event aiming to:

    • Build a critical mass of activities within the EGCI,
    • Identify potential synergies and relevant topics for further cooperation,
    • Improve the performance of individual projects.

Several thematic sessions have explored the entire EGCI spectrum and will provide an opportunity to interactive discussions.

This workshop was prepared on behalf of the European Commission by the Coordination Actions “PPP Implementation for Road Transport Electrification” (CAPIRE) and “Information and Communication Technologies for the Full Electric Vehicle” (ICT4FEV).
