Funding for the Pilot-T scheme is provided under the Transport 2025 programme. The objective of the Pilot-T scheme is to take better advantage of the potential for industrial development and innovation within new mobility solutions, and to facilitate more rapid application of technology that promotes a transport system with better mobility, improved safety and security and/or reduced emissions. In connection with the application review, the project summary may be forwarded to potential referees when asking whether they can assess the grant application. The project title and project summary should therefore not disclose sensitive information.


The objective of the Transport 2025 programme is to increase knowledge, expertise and innovation for effective, safe and sustainable transport solutions for the future.

The programme will employ a variety of funding activities to promote innovation, knowledge, expertise, pilot projects and demonstration activities of relevance to one or more of the following secondary thematic objectives:
  • Innovative mobility and transport solutions;
  • An effective, safe and sustainable transport system;
  • Knowledge concerning future transport needs.  
The programme targets research and competency organisations, public agencies and Norwegian companies that can contribute to long-term competence-building for the further development of the transport system.
The thematic priority areas for the Transport 2025 programme are:
  • An innovative transport system that makes use of new technology or business models;
  • A sustainable transport system that helps to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and pollution of the local environment;
  • A transport system for future-oriented urban and regional development.
As a basis for achieving the established primary objective and secondary thematic objectives, the Transport 2025 programme will work to promote the development of an effective research and innovation system. In this context, the programme will focus on the following priorities for structuring the research effort:
  • Value-creation and industrial development with the long-term aim of increasing international competiveness;
  • Development of research groups that can participate at the international forefront in the thematic areas encompassed by the programme.
  • Enhancing cooperation across sectors, disciplines and between private and public actors.
  • Expanding expertise related to transport.
