ELIPTIC call for twinning cities open


The ELIPTIC twinning fund aims at supporting the take-up of ELIPTIC’s sustainable measures with regard toelectrification of public transport in European cities. The twinning fund is a financing mechanism within the ELIPTIC project which aims to support the transfer of measures from ELIPTIC partner cities to ‘twin’ cities. Co-funding of up to 100% is available to successful applicants and a maximum amount of €15,000 per applicant. Applications may be submitted by individual or teams of organisations.

The ELIPTIC twinning fund offers two different take-up levels and activities, which range from inspirational - such as workshops and study tours - to small-scale study activities. The selected twinning cities will also take part in thebi-annual ELIPTIC User Fora.

Twin activities are expected to start with the participation in ELIPTIC’s first User Forum on 13 November 2015 (to be confirmed) in Berlin at the latest and shall be finalized within 18 months after their commencement (besides participation in the final ELIPTIC event and last User Forum in May 2018 in Bremen).
