. innovative products, processes and organisation;
. sustainable mobility and intermodality;
. land transport and marine technologies;
. new perspectives in aeronautics;

- RTD on generic technologies helping to develop the scientific and technological base as well as qualified human capital in critical areas, and giving support to innovation across a range of applications:

. materials and their production and transformation;
. new materials and production technologies in the steel field;
. measurements and testing;
- Support for the more efficient utilisation of existing research infrastructures to provide an attractive networked environment in the fields covered by this programme.
