Advisory Group Report - SSTAG, An analysis of the implementation of the Sustainable Surface Transport Work Programme and recommendations for the future

Funded under: FP6-SUSTDEV

Abstract

The objective of the report is to give an overview of the work carried out by the Sustainable Surface Transport Advisory Group - SSTAG - during the Sixth Framework Programme (FP6) of the European Commission (2002-2006). Furthermore, the aim was to compare the �outcome/tangible results� from the retained projects of the three �B� calls from the 1.6.2 priority - Sustainable surface transport under the responsibility of DG Research - to the general goals addressed and expectations raised by the FP6 document in general and the transport priority 1.6.2 in particular. The 1A, 2A, 3A and 4A calls were not covered by this advisory group. In other words, did the priority 6.2 work programme deliver the results that were anticipated in the objectives stated at the start of FP6?
Under FP6, with regard to the overall strategy, the Commission needed advice to be followed in carrying out the priority thematic areas and activities of research, as well as on the creation of the European Research Area (ERA). In order to receive this advice, the European Commission set up advisory groups for many of the thematic areas of the FP6. The tasks of the members of each group, therefore, were to give advice to the Commission services within his or her relevant field of expertise and to help stimulate, if possible, the corresponding European research communities.
The Commission�s mandate for the advisory groups (AGs) gives the following description:
- The members should carry out their work in full knowledge of the European policy context; in particular of the research activities carried out at the national level and in support of European research policy initiatives.
- Members participate in the various groups in their individual capacity and commit themselves to discussing the questions put forward in the groups to the best of their ability and in the best interest of Community research.
