ERTRAC publishes new collection of collaborative research projects’ legacy
From collaborative research projects to market deployment: ERTRAC published 12 success stories on the legacy of EU co-funded transport reserach projects.
The European Framework Programmes have been important mechanisms to achieve European transport policy goals related to mobility, energy efficiency, safety, emission reduction, economic growth and competitiveness.
Thousands of projects have been carried out with funding from European programmes. A major target of co-funded RTD projects is the creation of technologies, methodologies and processes, and their implementation as successful innovations. This new collection of factsheets gives a snapshot of European road transport innovations using 12 success stories that represent the wide range of RTD in this sector carried out in collaborative projects.
The factsheets have been produced by the FP7 project "FOSTER-ROAD - Future Surface Road Transport Research", the support action for the European Technology Platform ERTRAC.
