Finding innovative solutions for managing the large volumes of excavated material extracted during work on the Mont Cenis base tunnel. This is the topic for which TELT, in the framework of its partnership with the Links Foundation, has submitted a project to access European research funds.
In fact, the public promoter has entered into a partnership with Links, the international foundation that works to promote, lead and strengthen innovation processes through research projects within European calls, with whose direction it has participated together with other entities (Stockholm Metro, Malpensa Parking and Fryslan Province) in the European call for proposals “Circularity, resilience and intelligence in the construction, maintenance and use of transport infrastructure” (CARISMA). EUR five million are available for innovative research projects in the field of transport infrastructure.
It took six months to finalise the European partnership and the necessary documentation and the outcome of the European call is expected in spring 2023. The partnerships for innovation in TELT aim to identify synergies with private and public companies in order to develop projects focused on international best practices in the fields of engineering, innovation, economics, finance, structuring and management of business processes and the socio-political context. The objective being to acquire experience, numerical data, scenarios and trends, useful for the realisation of the Mont Cenis base tunnel and to generate innovation in the project, in the company and in the related industries, with the ultimate aim of positioning the company among the European excellences in the field of innovation in the sector of reference.
