The European Commission has published a proposal for a Council Decision on the promotion of sustainable and safe mobility. This Decision concerns the definition and implementation of the common transport policy and the trans-European transport network with a view to ensuring and encouraging sustainable and safe mobility.

The proposed Decision sets out a number of measures which may be taken by the European Commission in order to achieve this objective. These include:

- Systematic gathering, processing and dissemination of information relating to transport activities in the Community and to transport activities involving the Community and third countries;

- Involvement in the organization of specialized conferences and seminars by bodies pursuing objectives compatible with those of the Community;

- Provision of support, possibly on a regular basis, for analytical work carried out by national or international, public or private organizations, provided that such work contributes effectively and directly to the attainment of the objectives pursued under the common transport policy;

- Introduction of incentives and support measures to promote technical harmonization designed to ensure the interoperability of the trans-European transport network and the optimum functioning of the internal transport market;

- Support for initiatives seeking to ensure greater effectiveness in the definition, development and promotion of the trans-European transport network vis-a-vis its technical, environmental and financial aspects and its expansion to third countries;

- Encouragement of training operations in the transport sector with a specific view to promoting and improving transport safety and respect of the environment;

- Technical and financial assessment of measures taken by the Commission or by third countries to promote mobility;

- Performance of cost-benefit analyses in respect of actions and projects.

In order to implement these measures, the Commission may conclude contracts with public or private bodies, co-finance projects (up to a maximum of 50%), or contribute to the operating budgets of public or private international organizations operating in the transport sector. The financial appropriations allocated to these actions will be determined each year by the Community's budgetary authority.
