A wide range of publications are available in the "Transport Research" series produced by DG VII (Transport) of the European Commission. These highlight research carried out under the EURET transport research programme (1990-1993), and the APAS (actions de préparation, d'accompagnement et de suivi) studies carried out in 1994-1995 in order to prepare for the current specific RTD programmein the field of Transport.
