The objective of ADAPTATION is to improve the career perspectives of young researchers by taking part in an innovative European research programme aiming at investigating drivers' behavioural adaptation and its underlying processes over the time in response to Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) use. The research programme integrates, under a joint theoritical framework and a joint longitudinal methodological design, a set of individual projects dealing with the various aspects of the adaptation process. In addition to training-through research, personalized training actions will extend the skills of this future generation of academia and industry researchers. The training programme implemented during the ITN lifetime aims to accelerate acquisition of skills in Human Factors applied to ADAS design, to favour multi-disciplinary approaches, to strengthen to disseminate research results and to widen the career prospect with complementary skill on team and project management. Through its research and training programmes, ADAPTATION will contribute both to the development of the ERA and to an increase of EU competitiveness. The competitiveness of the European Industry and the implementation of their products will be improved by better response of ADAS to the drivers' needs and requirements. The European community will also benefit from the education of high skilled professionals and the development of durable training programmes for a future generation of researchers.
