The Sustainable Transport and Mobility programme aims to develop research on elementary knowledge necessary for technological advance in the field of transport, and to bring the knowledge required for mobility improvement. It follows on from the former Land Transport Vehicle programme. It is also the third year of the cycle started in 2011 by the Sustainable Land Transport programme. For its first edition, the programme was focused on the interaction between vehicle and environment, infrastructures, other vehicles and users. It concerned every mode of land transport: road, rail, inland navigation and all their applications for passengers and goods. In its second year, the programme opened to aeronautic and sea domains, on research topics at the interface with the land field in order to benefit from the effect of improved synergy. In 2013, the opening to aeronautic and sea domains is maintained.
The objectives of the programme are:
It is organised in three related topics: engine and powertrain design, transport vehicles and transport systems.
Finally, the opening to aeronautic and sea domains aims at improving the communication between scientific communities and therefore facilitate synergies and generate new types of projects with a crossed fertilisation effect favorable to creativity and to the emergence of scientific and technological breakthrough.
This programme is open to Franco-German projects within the Deufrako cooperation initiative.
It is also open to Franco-Finnish projects within the framework of a cooperation with the Finnish Tekes. The modalities of this collaboration are described in a specifix appendix called "Conditions of submission, evaluation and selection of French-Finnish projects", available below.
The complete submission file comprises two documents that must be filled out:
The project must be submitted by the coordinating partner electronically before the closing date on the submission website.
Each French partner must sign and scan the administrative and financial document and upload it to the submission site before the deadline.
