Road Infrastructure, The backbone of transport system, EUR 23349



Transport is widely recognised as the basic structure enabling development and growth. The road infrastructure in particular, due to its capillary dissemination, can ensure a proper level of competitiveness to Countries, Regions, and local Communities.
The Framework Programmes, following their respective basic strategies, have considered road infrastructure under different points of view and included the relevant research under different thematic priorities or programmes. The analysis presented in this publication focuses on FP5 and FP6 funded projects dealing with road infrastructure related subjects, from construction to maintenance, from performance to functionalities. The increasing role that this matter is gaining in an integrated approach to the transport system is made clear and the foreseen activities under FP7 are logically connected and presented.
