Launching workshop ‘Countries and regions initiatives supporting zero emission road freight and logistics’

Wednesday, May 11th, 2022

ALICE and EMEurope, with the support of the POLIS Network and ENTRANCE project, are jointly organising a series of online workshops on “countries and regions initiatives supporting zero emission road freight and logistics” with the aim of bringing together representatives of companies, research, cities and (national/regional) policy makers to share information on current and planned incentive schemes, especially about research and innovation (R&I) programmes to accelerate the transition towards zero-emission road freight transport and logistics in European regions and countries.

During the launching workshop of 1 June teaser information about the national and regional workshops will be shared and countries/regions and dates will be announced. Focus of the national and regional workshops will be road freight transport and logistics decarbonisation mainly through battery electric and fuel cell hydrogen solutions, but in some cases also addressing short-term transition opportunities like bio- and synthetic fuels.

The workshops will take place online, in English and with a duration of one and a half hours.
