The European Travellers Club

Horizon 2020 programme
Our programme concerns section 7.2 of the Horizon 2020 Work Programme: “Towards seamless mobility addressing fragmentation in ITS deployment in Europe.” We believe we have found an approach that allows pan-European multi-modal journey planning and travelling with the use of both existing infrastructures as well integrating new technologies that deliver a superior service to travellers. 
Furthermore, we believe that our open eco-system maximises the contribution that existing and new parties can make to this end. 
Finally, we believe that our governance structure ensures the fast adoption of standards in a way that will earn the trust of travellers without relying on future legislation. 
The consortium consists of leading and innovative e-ticketing schemes, such as VDV e-Ticket Service from Germany, Trans Link Systems from the Netherlands, and Verkéiersverbond from Luxembourg, as well as industry partners such as NXP and UL Transaction Security and ACCEPT Institute (who acts as the coordinator to the consortium). 

This project has received funding from 
the European Union’s Horizon 2020 
research and innovation programme 
under grant agreement No. 636126.
