Italian RRF Opportunities in the Transport Sector webinar

Register for the next webinar – RRF and business

The Finnish Sustainable Growth Programme for the Transport Sector continues to seek new market opportunities together with Team Finland and ITS Finland. The next opportunity window we will open is the Italian RRF market. Why Italy? 

Despite the looming recession in Europe; Italy´s G7 economy is expected to grow 2.5% in 2022 and 1.2% in 2023. The EU recovery fund (RRF) allocation and the surging private sector demand create business opportunities for Finnish companies. Strong regional mobility clusters and system-integrators are interested in partnering up with Finnish companies to improve their product and service portfolio for big tenders. Italy grants 8-9 billion RRF money to sustainable mobility 31 billion to transport infrastructure, combining a vast array of transport modes.

Italian automotive, maritime and aerospace industries are also investing billions in electrification, AI, IoT and general Europeanization of value chains. In this context; they are looking for suitable high-end vendors to help them on this journey. Cities such as Milan and Turin have RRF induced investment projects to reduce traffic jams, manage logistical flows and drastically reduce emissions. A flagship example is a project on Intermodal hydrogen powered railway system in Piedmont.

The webinar is targeted at Finnish companies in the smart and sustainable transport sector.
