  1. Workshop EMTA onEuropean programmes Rotterdam, 15 May 2014 Johan Diepens Ronald Jorna

  2. European workshop programme • 1. Introduction to Horizon2020, TEN-T and Interreg: • Focus of the programmes • Relevant topics • How does it work • Example: CIPTEC proposal • 2. Workshop: • Working in small groups • Identification of key challenges EMTA members are facing • Topics for European project(s)

  3. Part 1: EU funding programmes Ronald Jorna

  4. European funding programmes • Why participate in European projects? • Address common needs • Pooling resources • Integrating research • Learn from each other • Funding

  5. European funding programmes • Three relevant programmes (2014-2020): • Horizon 2020 •  focus on research • Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) •  focus on TEN-T corridors and nodes • Interreg •  focus on regional cooperation • and development

  6. Horizon2020 • What is Horizon 2020: • EC programme for € 80 billion Research & Innovation • Priority 3: Focus on societal challenges, including health, clean energy and transport • € 7,7 billion for ‘smart, green and integrated transport’ • € 6,5 billion for ‘secure, clean and efficient energy’ • Funding: 70-100% of (labour costs + 25% overhead) + 70-100% of other costs (travel, subcontracting, etc.) • A project should consist of at least 3 partners from 3 different countries, but in general 10-20 partners are common, but also larger consortia consist (>50 partners).

  7. Horizon2020

  8. Horizon 2020 • Relevant topics in Horizon 2020: • In ‘smart, green and integrated transport’, call 2015: • Strengthening knowledge and capacities of local authorities (SUMP) • Demonstrating/testing innovative solutions for clean and better urban transport and mobility (CIVITAS) • Transport societal drivers • Facilitating market take-up of innovative transport infra solutions • Smart governance, network resilience and streamlined delivery of infrastructure innovation •  December 2014 call open, submission in March 2015 • In previous call (2014): • Smart rail services • Advanced bus concepts • Tackling urban road congestion  CIPTEC proposal • Transforming use of conventionally fuelled vehicles in urban areas • ITS connectivity and seamless mobility

  9. CIPTEC proposal • Characteristics: • Full title: Collective Innovation for Public Transport in European Cities • Exploring how a favourable environment can be created for a significant growth in public transport at limited extra costs. • Total budget: around € 3 million • Limited involvement of EMTA: participation in meetings/workshops, advise, stakeholder involvement • Funding EMTA: approx. € 32.500 (100%) • Evaluation result first round expected in June 2014.

  10. CIPTEC proposal  Possibility for additional partner (transport authority, transport operator)

  11. CIPTEC proposal Project activities Market trends and users’ needs per customer group Mapping/evaluation of innovative services and practices Promoting innovation in PT by crowdsourcing, co-creation, engaging people and bridging PT with other sectors Performing advanced marketing research and consumer experimentation and synthesizing the findings Developing a Toolbox for PT operators/authorities towards integration of services and customers’ satisfaction. Developing of a “model” strategy plan for public transport operators/authorities

  12. CIPTEC proposal • Possible role of EMTA and EMTA members: • Provide input on market trends and users’ needs, review outcomes • Indicate your research questions on innovative services and practices • Assist researchers in getting access to PT users for crowd-sourcing and co-creation • Facilitate researchers in doing advanced marketing research and consumer experimentation • Help define format and type of tools needed for the toolbox • ....

  13. Connecting Europe Facility • Supports efficient, integrated, sustainable, multimodal transport network in Europe. • Budget: €26,3 billion for 2014-2020, of which €11,3 billion for cohesion countries • Special focus on border crossing projects and bottlenecks on core network corridors.

  14. Connecting Europe Facility Relevant for EMTA members: Optimizing integration and links between transport modes, incl. horizontal projects (ERTMS, ITS): • Actions on implementation of transport infrastructure at nodes of the core network, including urban nodes Innovative projects (cities as living lab) Both works and studies Funding ranges from 20% for investments, 50% for studies and 85% for cohesion countries Link to corridor coordinator required Expected: 1 September 2014 (closing: February 2015)

  15. Interreg V • What is Interreg A, B, C: • Interreg A: cross-border cooperation through joint local and regional initiatives • Interreg B: transnational cooperation aiming at achieving an integrated territorial development • Interreg C: interregional cooperation and the exchange of experience  Interreg Europe • The EU provides approximately €9 billion for the European Territorial Cooperation from 2014

  16. Interreg • 11 Funding priorities • Strengthening research, technological development and innovation • Enhancing access to and use and quality of ICT • Enhancing the competitiveness of SMEs • Supporting the shift towards a low-carbon economy in all sectors • Promoting climate change adaptation, risk prevention and management • Protecting the environment and promoting resource efficiency • Promoting sustainable transport and removing bottlenecks in key network infrastructures • Promoting employment and supporting labour mobility • Promoting social inclusion and combating poverty • Investing in education, skills and lifelong learning by developing education and training infrastructure • Enhancing institutional capacity and an efficient public administration

  17. Interreg VA • Interreg A • €6.6 bln for the cross-border cooperation (INTERREG VA), • Chart: all cross-border regions of Germany • Example: new bus connection between German/Dutch border region Euregio (funding: €50.000)

  18. Interreg VB • Interreg B: • €1.8 bln for the transnational cooperation (INTERREG VB) • Chart: NWE region • Example: BAPT project: Boosting advanced public transport systems (7,6 mln funding)

  19. Interreg VB

  20. Interreg Europe • Interreg VC: • €500 mio for the inter-regional cooperation (INTERREG Europe) • Chart: eligible countries • Example: EPTA project: Enabling Public Transport Authorities in Europe (funding: €1,0 mln)

  21. How do European programmes work? • Influencing the programme content • EC publishes Calls for proposals • Identify relevant topics • Set up or join a consortium • Write and submit proposal (1 or 2 stage process) • EC carries out evaluation (with external experts) • Contract negotiation • Start of project • Total duration from call to start of project: 12-15 months

  22. How to get involved in EU programmes? • Think about networking and building links with potential partners: • Who are the key players? • Who has been involved in previous projects / stakeholder groups? • How can you meet them? Attend events (info days, workshops), join EU evaluators database, join stakeholder groups, LinkedIn groups • Position yourself as a key partner • Get yourself known by European Commission staff, national representatives

  23. Part 2: Workshop Johan Diepens

  24. Workshop approach • All participants will be divided in small groups • Each group to answer the following questions: • What are the top-3 challenges/problems you are facing in your work (e.g. issues from strategic plan, workprogramme, etc.) in the next 10 years? • Related to the above: what topic(s) would you like to address in a potential European cooperation with other EMTA members, PT companies, vehicle manufacturers, research institutes, consultancies, etc.? • Plenary presentation of results • Ranking of results
