Funded under: FP6-SUSTDEV

Abstract

This is the final report of the 'European Road Transport Research Advisory Council' (ERTRAC), which moved forward in a multi-stakeholder effort to implement an integrated Strategic Research Agenda in Road Transport Research. Due to the complexity of the issues and the number of stakeholders involved with road transport, ERTRAC has structured the discussion and development of the ERTRAC Vision for 2020 and Strategic Research Agenda around four pillars:
- Mobility, Transport and Infrastructure
- Environment, Energy and Resources
- Safety and Security
- Design and Production Systems

The report is essentially a strategic research agenda, as formed by the studies performed under the scope of ERTRAC. There is an introduction on the general aims of ETRAC and the European Vision on road infrastructure research priorities and then a more detailed presentation of goals, findings and recommendations under various important aspects of the project, namely safety and security, mobility, environment and energy resources and design. Finally, there are conclusions on the priorities and policy recommendations for the road research industry.
