The ENTRANCE project and the ARRIVAL platform: innovative solutions in transport

26 February 2024, the European Shippers’ Council organised a webinar on the main outcome of the ENTRANCE project, the ARRIVAL platform, attended by over 30 participants.

The ENTRANCE project is a 3-year project supported by the European Union’s Horizon 2020. It started in 2020 and ended in 2023. The main outcome of the ENTRANCE project is the creation of a European matchmaking platform, the ARRIVAL platform, in cooperation with the RECIPROCITY project.

The ARRIVAL platform offers matchmaking and off-line services, designed to rally buyers looking to adopt pioneering innovative transport and innovators seeking to see their work rewarded.

Generally, the ENTRANCE project and the ARRIVAL platform:

  • Identify and promote innovative zero-emission transport solutions;
  • Support an ecosystem made of innovators and buyers, seeking to access and scale-up the most novel innovations, with the lowest possible risk;
  • Organise training and brokerage activities facilitating purchase aggregation by neutral trustees for the orchestration of collaboration;
  • Promote the aggregation of purchase agreements and replacement plans to facilitate the adoption of innovative sustainable transport solutions by buyers and, thus, the scaling-up of those solutions by innovators;
  • Promote good practices on the deployment of innovative solutions;
  • Disseminate funding opportunities as well as relevant legislation;
  • Support access to innovative finance solutions.
