Partnership Event 29/03/2022 - 30/03/2022Brussels

#H2020RTR21 – 5th edition

The European Commission together with the European Road Transport Research Advisory Council (ERTRAC), the European Green Vehicles Initiative Association for the 2Zero partnership (EGVIAfor2Zero) and the Connected, Cooperation and Automated Mobility Association (CCAM) are organising the fifth European conference on results from road transport R&I in H2020 projects (H2020RTR21Conference).

Like the previous edition, this conference aims at gathering selected H2020 funded projects on road transport areas, to give the attendees an overall picture of the achievements of EU funded R&I and to identify the next steps needed to reach the overall EU transport policy objectives. With a strong focus on scientific achievements of EU-funded projects, this conference will be a unique opportunity to disseminate the knowledge generated through these funded projects.

65 H2020 projects will present their new discoveries and achievements, how they tackled hurdles and resolved challenges, and what are the next research steps in different important areas for road transport: Green Vehicles, Urban Mobility, Logistics, Intelligent Transport Systems, Safety, Automated Road Transport … delivering a holistic view of how the European research scene is moving forward in these fields, bringing benefits to the environment, economy, and European society overall.

Join us and take this opportunity to network and meet your peers here in Brussels. The event will be a physical event and it will take place on 29 & 30 March 2022.*
