Abstract

This report analyses the results of the EC research programme for transport, EURET, which was launched in 1991 under the 2nd Framework Programme for research and technological development (RTD). In total EURET has granted ECU 26.8 million to 10 research projects, which were completed in 1994. The evaluation was carried out during one month in early 1995 by a Panel of 5 external, independent experts and a rapporteur appointed by the Diectorate -General VII, Transport, of the European Commission. The final reports from the projects have been studied and interviews held within Commission staff, project leaders and representatives from user organisations. The assessment takes into account that EURET is the first research programme directly linked to the Common Transport Policy and that a new larger programme is being launched under the 4th Framework Programme for RTD. The EC Framework Programmes for RTD support a wide range of research topics of relevance for the transport sector and, in terms of resources, EURET has been a small component compared to programmes for advanced technologies in aviation and automotive transport, for example.
