Horizon 2020 is the biggest EU Research and Innovation programme ever with nearly €80 billion of funding available over seven years (2014 to 2020). The funding is distributed through a number of calls for projects under a number of themes, including Transport.

The Horizon 2020 Work Programme for Trasnport 2018/20 has a budget of €944m for 2018-2020 and despite Brexit UK authorities are eligible to take part. At the workshop attendees will be able to find out more about the opportunities to access this funding and the calls for projects that will be open until 2020. The session will include presentations from Louise Mothersole, UK National Contact Point for Horizon 2020 Transport and case studies from Transport for Greater Manchester.

There will also be the option of a one-to-one ‘surgery’ for anyone wishing to discuss specific project ideas with the National Contact Point.
