An EU mobility project is offering European cities and transport providers funding and expertise to help them move towards electrified transport. The ELIPTIC project, funded under the EU’s €80bn research and innovation programme Horizon 2020, aims to save cities money and energy by developing new solutions to optimise or regenerate their electric public transport systems. Interested cities can apply for a ‘twinning’ fund which enables them to make use of the electric mobility expertise of ELIPTIC’s partner cities and take part in workshops and study tours. Through the fund, the innovative electric mobility measures applied in ELIPTIC partner cities will be recreated in twin cities, and suggestions for further improvements given. The application deadline for cities interested in becoming an ELIPTIC twin city is 31 August 2015. Up to €15,000 of funding is available per applicant, with individuals or local groups of organisations eligible to apply. To take part, complete and return the application form.
