This workshop belongs to the series of online workshops on “countries and regions initiatives supporting zero emission road freight and logistics” jointly organised by EMEurope and ALICE, with the support of the POLIS Network and project ENTRANCE. In this workshop, co-organised by the Federal Ministry for Climate Action, Environment, Energy, Mobility, Innovation and Technology (BMK) information about the Austrian strategies and funding measures to support zero emission road transport will be presented. The aim is to bring 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.
Date and Time
20 June 2022, 16.00 – 17.30 h (CET) (via Zoom)
Registration is closed!
EMEurope and ALICE, with the support of the POLIS Network and project ENTRANCE, 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 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.
Date and Time
1 June 2022, 16 – 17 h (CET) (via Zoom)

The SURF project (Sustainable URban Freight) will guide city planners, business leaders and other freight decision-makers to develop a vision and strategy pathway for sustainable freight. The project is a collaboration with Environmental Defense Fund Europe (EDF Europe) taking place between April and December 2021.
Within its activities, SURF organised the SURF e-course on pathways for Zero-Emission Zones for freight (ZEZ-Fs) and POLIS is kindly inviting you to join.
This event was open to all POLIS members and non-members.

The EMEurope initiative is coming to end and during the EMEurope Final Conference we looked back at where we started and the achievements of the initiative, getting inspired for future activities. During the event, EMEurope representatives, guests and collaborating European platforms and networks gave their insights into how established collaborations could further contribute to the electrification of transport and mobility in Europe, discussing this and other topics with participants.
Thanks for joining us!

Mutual learning and exchange of information are an essential basis for the development and implementation of effective national, regional and local incentives for the electrification of transport and mobility. Therefore, the networks of EMEurope, ETP-ALICE and Polis, supported by the European Commission, have joined forces in organising an online event on the conditions, incentives and regulations for large scale electrification of Urban Freight and City Logistics. During this event, input presentations were provided from the complementary networks which served as launching pads for discussions in break-out sessions with the participants.
