The problem

The transport and mobility sector plays an important role for European employment and GDP, as it directly employs 10 million people and accounts for about 5% of GDP. However, this sector also represents almost a quarter of Europe’s greenhouse gas emissions and is the main cause of air pollution in cities.

Accelerating the uptake and deployment of innovative transport products and services is a prerequisite to achieve the European environmental objectives; however, it remains a bottleneck, due to the lack of visibility of the existing innovative solutions, risks associated with the uptake of first of a kind solutions, and low access to finance.

ENTRANCE boots the implementation of innovation solutions that contribute to the ambitious goals envisaged by the European Commission for reducing the transport CO2 emissions by 2030 and 2050 and respond to the increasing mobility needs of people and goods thereby strengthening the European competitiveness and boosting growth and jobs.
