KEY SUCCESS FACTORS

PROJECT DEVELOPMENT PHASE

  • Funding

    Technical assistance funds; combination of European and local co-funding schemes with commitment of stakeholders to match the rest

  • Experienced staff

    Long lasting experienced team in IIT for preparing large scale demonstration projects

  • Local public acceptance

    Hydrogen and electromobility as a well known and accepted technology in the region; high acceptance level in the public because of long lasting didactic activities

  • Stakeholder cooperation

    Regional environment where all partners know each other, short communication ways

COMMERCIAL AND FINANCING PHASE

  • Applying for public subsidy/grant schemes

    Applications for European funding programs and calls and winning them gives good chances and arguments for getting a local co-funding
