Keep on rolling, Road Transport Research in the Seventh Framework Programme

Funded under: FP7


Efficient transport is a fundamental requirement for sustainable wealth and prosperity in Europe, driving employment, economic growth and global exports. It provides citizens and societies with essential resources and means of mobility, while transport derived technological advances stimulate knowledge acquisition, innovation and European integration. All of this makes transport a key element of the Union's Lisbon Strategy for building the greatest knowledge-based economy in the world.
The mid-term review of the Transport White Paper recognises the need for research and innovation in preparing the transport system of the future. Europe needs to innovate to remain a global leader in specialised industrial sectors where its competence is based on knowledge and new technologies. Investment in research, through the EU Framework Programme and public-private partnerships, is an important element of European Transport Policy.
