Funding opportunities for French-Swedish mobility projects

Opportunities for funding French-Swedish innovation projects on mobility are available through for example EUREKA. This can add additional capacity to the collaboration on smart mobility between the countries that, among others, Drive Sweden is active within.

The collaboration is a part of the strategic partnership on innovation, digital transformation and green solutions that was initiated by the Swedish and French governments in 2017. So far, the collaboration has resulted in several workshops and bilateral connections and projects. The available funding will add to the possibilities for ongoing and new projects.
