Project ID: 511043
Funded under: FP6-SUSTDEV

Abstract

This is the final activity report of the CRONET-DAYS project. Funded by the European Commission (EC) under the Sixth Framework Program (FP6), CRONET-DAYS was a Specific Support Action (SSA) with a main goal to facilitate and enhance the meeting between the Contract Research Organisations of European Research Area (ERA) in surface transport area (road, rail, waterborne, intermodality). It aimed at:
- enhancing the creation of research and development (R&D) and innovation projects in ERA;
- initiating European partnerships (FP6 Integrated Projects (IPs) and Network of Excellence (NoE), Eureka, bi- or tri-national projects);
- increasing technology transfer and synergies inter-Research and technology organisations (RTOs) (sharing and combining knowledge, know-how, software, hardware, facilities, human resources);
- networking on common R&D areas by enabling cross-fertilisation of ideas and capabilities between the different surface transport modes.

The specific document provides a summary of the project and a description of its objectives, the work performed and the results achieved. The objective was achieved by organising a two-days 'surface transport' RTO meeting in Nantes (France), including several general presentations, as well as one-to-one technical and business meetings.
