100% renewable targets will require power storage to manage flows on the net
Electrolysers utilise these intermittent power flows to produce H2 gas from water
H2 gas can be stored in large quantities underground and transported via existing gas pipelines
H2 vehicles recharge faster and are more durable than battery powered transport
Growing H2 demand in industrial processes will reduce costs and increase supply
When: 18 December, 2013   Where: Brussels

The first round of calls under the Smart, Green and Integrated Transport challenge of the new Horizon 2020 Framework Programme will be published at the end of the 2013.

To support the preparation of proposals, the Transport Directorate of the European Commission’s Research and Innovation Directorate-General is organising an Information Day on 18 December 2013 in the Charlemagne building, rue de la Loi 170, Brussels.

The aim of the day is to inform potential participants in the first round of calls under the Smart, Green and Integrated Transport Challenge of the new Horizon 2020 Framework Programme and to offer some unique opportunities for networking.

The morning sessions will deliver an overall presentation of the surface transport, the aviation and the cross-cutting topics of the Transport challenge Work Programme 2014-15.

Information will also be given on the Evaluation Guidelines and on the new legal and financial Rules for Participation covering all aspects from the submission of a proposal to the signature of a grant agreement.

At the end of the morning, participants will be provided with an introduction on the Participant Portal, as well as on the services offered by the National Contact Points network (NCP).

The afternoon session – 14h00-18h00 – will be divided between two major items – Q&A sessions followed by a brokerage event.
