Info Days on the EGVI PPP – December 2013

The Information Days on the European Green Vehicles Initiative took place on Monday 16 and Tuesday 17 December 2013 in the Charlemagne Building (rue de la Loi 170) and Centre Albert Borschette (rue Froissart 36), in Brussels.

This year, the Information Days jointly addressed the four research public-private partnerships launched in the framework of Horizon 2020: Green Vehicles, Factories of the Future, Energy-efficient Buildings and Sustainable Process Industry.

Following the publication of the Work Programme and calls for proposals, on 11 December, the European Commission intends to inform about the implementation of the four contractual PPPs and the opportunities included in the Work Programme 2014-2015.

The general programme of the Info Days and related information are now available on the event website.
