The EU project forum is the annual AVERE-made workshop and event for all e-mobility stakeholders.

Key features:

  • Experts and policymakers will provide insights and previews on the forthcoming opportunities in the Climate, Energy and Mobility Horizon 2023-2024 work programme and offer guidance in the Q&A sessions;
  • Several EU flagship projects in the e-mobility spectrum will be presented to identify possible trajectories and to display the latest solutions;
  • Customised workshops will help participants build a network of relevant partners to start a consortium.


The EU Project Forum supports your organisation in getting into the EU projects game by sharing best practices, building partnerships, and disseminating innovations boosting the e-mobility transition.

The annual meeting is designed to be a project incubator for innovative solutions and an exhibit for ongoing Horizon Europe projects at the core of EU policy-making.

Profile of participants:

The event is designed for participants who are:

  • Active organisations along the e-mobility value-chain: OEMs, Research/knowledge partners, associations, local/regional authorities, enterprises, NGOs etc.;
  • Compliant with the EU rule of law.

All participants must also:

  • Be able to work in English;
  • Be able to commit to acting as a partner in an EU-funded project;
  • Ensure gender balance.

AEC2023 @ Tivoli Vredenburg
Sep 26 – Sep 27 all-day
Register Here

The EU’s climate ambitions have prompted lawmakers to virtually agree on an end date for internal combustion engines within the next decade so that electric vehicles will become the main vehicles available on European roads in the near future. AVERE welcomes this commitment which will help make our roads cleaner and healthier.

While setting a clear end date for the combustion engine was a prerequisite for the deployment of EVs on the road, it will be important, as a second step, to address the key enablers for the industry to join forces and bridge the gap to create a future-proof and optimal e-mobility ecosystem.

AEC2023 is at a crossroads for industry, consumers and government to join forces to take e-mobility to the next level. This conference will thus rest on five pillars that will constitute the key enablers for a smooth transition to zero-emission mobility:


Each pillar will be addressed through panel discussions, roundtables, and side events that will gather decision-makers, EV industry representatives and EV consumer representatives.

These discussions will be followed by networking sessions which will allow you to exchange with pioneers in the industry, lawmakers and researchers.

We are therefore delighted to invite you to partner with AVERE AEC 2023 as a sponsor, exhibitor or participant.

This two days event will occur from September 26-27, 2023, in Utrecht – a pioneer in electromobility and the world’s first bidirectional city.
