Call for Proposals - Transport 2013 DG MOVE FP7-TRANSPORT-2013-MOVE-1 Closed!

Objectives

The general objective of this call is to develop integrated, safer, “greener” and “smarter” pan-European transport systems based on technological and operational advances and on the European transport policy for the benefit of all citizens and society and climate policy, respecting the environment and natural resources; and securing and further developing the competitiveness attained by the European industries in the global market.

Reflecting the new political context and the priority given to the Innovation Union, a new approach has been adopted for Work Programme 2013 (WP 2013). This new approach is based on focusing on major socio-economic challenges and responding to societal concerns. The work programme is structured accordingly to these challenges and addresses the innovation cycle in its integrity, while respecting the rules of competition. The Transport theme takes a holistic ‘transport system’ approach in addressing the challenges and the innovation dimension, by considering the interactions of vehicles or vessels, networks or infrastructures and the use of transport services. Such an approach will necessitate the integration and demonstration of new concepts, knowledge and technologies, and the support to bringing them to the market within a socio-economic and policy context. Given the different structure and focus of the sectors, the theme is divided into sub-themes (accordingly with the Specific Programme) and horizontal activities:

  • 7.1. AERONAUTICS and AIR TRANSPORT (AAT)
  • 7.2. SUSTAINABLE SURFACE TRANSPORT (SST) including the ‘European Green Cars Initiative’
  • 7.3. SOCIO-ECONOMIC RESEARCH and CROSS-CUTTING ISSUES
  • 7.4. GALILEO

In particular, the objectives of this call action are to facilitate ports (maritime or inland waterway) to efficiently handle the increasing freight volumes; to enable seamless logistics chains; to review the restrictions on provisions for port services; to enhance the transparency on ports’ financing, highlighting the destination of public funding to the different port activities with a view to avoid any distortion of competition; and to “establish a mutually recognisable framework on the training of port workers in different fields of port activities”.
