ISINNOVA has co-authored a study of EU financial support for sustainable urban mobility and the use of alternative fuels in EU urban areas. Specifically, the study evaluated several financial tools funding the EU action on urban mobility and alternative fuels in terms of their efficiency, effectiveness, relevance, European value added, coherence and sustainability over the last two financial periods: 2000-2006 and 2007-2013.
Seven EU financial tools and funding activities in these fields have been analysed, each with a distinct nature and different objectives: 1) the R&D Framework Programmes (FP5, FP6, FP7), 2) the IEE – Intelligent Energy for Europe programme, 3) the European Regional Development Fund – ERDF, including interregional cooperation programme, e.g. INTERREG; 4) the Cohesion Fund, 5) the LIFE programme, 6) Trans-European-Networks in Transport – TEN-T and 7) the loans funded by EIB.
