No Ongoing Calls

The VREF thank you for your interest in its FUT-programme. The Foundations have no on on-going calls for the moment.

VREF inspires, initiates and supports research and educational activities promoting sustainable transport for equitable access in urban areas. Through the Future Urban Transport Program - How to deal with the complexity of urban transport (FUT), VREF invests in the development of new knowledge as well as communication and demonstrative examples. The aim is to nurture change processes in cities and businesses through dissemination and implementation of research findings.

The FUT Program started in 2001 and has initiated ten Centers of Excellence, and a number of projects and events.
