EGVIA – ERTRAC 1st European Conference Results from Road Transport Research in H2020 projects

Jointly with ERTRAC, EGVIA has organised last 29 & 30 November 2017 the 1st European conference to showcase the results of selected Horizon 2020 funded projects on road transport (Green Vehicles, Road, Mobility for Growth: Urban Mobility, Logistics, Intelligent Transport Systems, …). Various technological challenges will be covered in order to highlight the contribution of ongoing EU-funded research projects to meet EU policy goals.

The selected projects have presented their preliminary results giving the participants an overall picture of the achievements of EU-funded research under the Horizon 2020 programme.

Please find below the presentations available for download. You may also download a zip file with all the presentations (wetransfer link – valid until 26.12.2017 – midnight).
