The general objective of the Commissions research and development effort in the field of intermodal transport is to support the development of a framework for an optimal integration of the different modes in the transport chain. In 1995, the Commission launched the task force transport intermodality in response to the need to stimulate and improve the co-ordination of European research and to increase industry participation with the aim of bridging the gap between the scientific and the operational world.

This document gives descriptions of the tasks open in the joint call for transport intermodality on an individual task by task basis. A description of the problem targeted by each task force followed by the objectives and the approach taken.

Five tasks have been defined for the present joint call. The four demonstration tasks aim at integrated demonstration projects with a European added value and a clearly innovative character. With regard to Task 5, one sub-task (5.3) is oriented towards the Telematics Applications Programme, while the others (5.1, 5.2, 5.4, 5.5, 5.6) are in the realm of the Transport RTD Programme.

Interested proposers are recommended to also consult the evaluation guidelines which have been drafted specifically for this joint call for proposals. These can also be found in the CORDIS Document Library.
