Safe, Resilient Transport and Smart Mobility services for passengers and goods (HORIZON-CL5-2023-D6-01)

Projects are expected to contribute to ALL of the following outcomes (with a clear baseline for each use case):

  • Ensure resilience of infrastructure of a) seaports, b) connected inland waterways infrastructure c) connected hinterland land infrastructure, to extreme weather events by assuring at least 80% operability during the disruptions.
  • Contribute with at least 20% increase in modal shift of port hinterland connections towards zero- and low-emission transport systems.
  • Ensure safe port access and port operations by avoiding extra accidents as a consequence of disruptions caused by a changing climate.
  • Minimise environmental impact (e.g. emissions, soil/water pollution, degradation of ecosystems and fragmentation of habitats and biodiversity loss, as foreseen in the EU Biodiversity Strategy 2030[1]) during construction, maintenance, operation and decommissioning of the infrastructure by going beyond the EU environmental legislation.
  • Present guidelines describing measures (structural, operational and institutional) to address climate risks and hazards, and provide guidance on how to screen and evaluate options.
