Event Details

The Third Targeted Project Call is launching soon! Register below to attend our information webinars and learn more about the call and the topics.


The Third Targeted Project Call falls under Innovation’s Targeted Projects Programme. This programme was initiated to address:
a) gaps in our innovation portfolio concerning the business plan, strategic agenda, and
b) external changes and influences such as technological developments, policies/regulations, and (urgent) events.

In February 2023 the First Targeted Project Call was launched with a focus on the topics of sustainable and efficient waterborne transportation and the democratisation of large-scale ITC solutions for smaller public transport authorities in financially constrained RIS cities.

In June, the Second Targeted Project Call was launched and focused on tools to assist cities in incorporating health as a core element in urban planning and transport policymaking, as well as a hydrogen-powered cargo bike.


The Third Targeted Project Call addresses five topics. Each of them will be a standalone project and as such each topic should be applied to separately.

Demand Responsive Transport (DRT): Support the deployment of Demand Responsive Technologies in RIS cities and their integration with the broader public transport system as a flexible, inclusive, and scalable solution to urban sprawl in RIS countries.  

Employee Commuting Emissions Reporting: Facilitate the development of a user-friendly, replicable and scalable solution for companies to report on emissions coming from employee commutes to comply with the new CSRD regulation that will come into force next year for companies of 500+ employees.

Hydrogen transition: Accelerate the development and commercialisation of hydrogen technologies that can push for the uptake of hydrogen and bridge the hydrogen transition gap.

Support for National Governments Innovation Programmes: Support and collaborate with national, regional, and/or local governments to increase the impact of their existing/running innovation programmes.

Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) Buses: Support the commercialisation of a comprehensive advanced driver assistance systems for city buses, that will help smaller and mid-sized bus manufacturers to comply with the new GSR2 regulation aimed at making European streets safer.
