Call for proposals 2017 - H2020 - Building a low-carbon, climate resilient future: green vehicles H2020-LC-GV-2018-2019-2020 Closed!


The Calls will focus on the most critical aspects supporting a massive introduction of electrified vehicles:

  1. advances in electric batteries (production of elementary cells and pack assembly),
  2. new architectures, concepts and components to support the advent of the 3rd generation of electrified vehicles,
  3. improve the recharging experience from the view-point of the end-users,
  4. supporting the competitiveness of European industries through the development of digitalised production environments and the use of advanced material,
  5. addressing the urban dimension of introducing electrified vehicles.

The strategic objective of the Green Vehicles Calls for proposals for the years 2018, 2019 and 2020 will be to prepare the ground for this potential massive increase of electrified vehicles and to support European industries to maintain their leading world position in supplying automotive products. The major impact of the research will be to promote the development of a new generation of electric vehicles with a minimum of 400 km range that meets customer expectations, progress and demonstration in urban and regional electric vehicles (light and smart vehicles for passengers, delivery vehicles and buses) and support the production of batteries, components and electrified vehicles in Europe. Wide user acceptance shall be stimulated by accessibility and ease of use of all types of charging infrastructure – public, semi-public and private.


This call covers the following topics:

  • LC-GV-01-2018: Integrated, brand-independent architectures, components and systems for next generation electrified vehicles optimised for the infrastructure
  • LC-GV-02-2018: Virtual product development and production of all types of electrified vehicles and components
  • LC-GV-03-2019: User centric charging infrastructure
  • LC-GV-04-2019: Low-emissions propulsion for long-distance trucks and coaches
  • LC-GV-05-2019: InCo flagship on “Urban mobility and sustainable electrification in large urban areas in developing and emerging economies"
